The Big Blue, my favourite childhood movie, I can't think of any I loved more than this. The soundtrack was one of the first CDs I owned. Every single track boomed with the sounds of the ocean.
It scared me that I could understand his insanity, his obsession, and that I would forever be drawn to other people like this. I'll never forget his dream, and the scenes that follow...
One hundred and sixty nights ago to this night under the Moon Wavespell, on our Ometepe Island, my body transcended all known limits, unleashing my spirit though a timeless moment we shared under the blackest sky. (more...)
It's starting to get a bit freaky for me that he uses English words I have to constantly look up on dictionary.com and its my first language while it's his 3rd or 4th. What the heck man?!?! I'm finally admitting to it. I've been looking them up secretly all this time. hahaha
Well at least this government is more transparent. If you have ever wondered what your tax dollars are spent on the current US government has set up a site that gives citizens an individual, detailed tax receipt. Check it out!
Notice what percentage is spent on the defence budget.
How Mercury Retrograde during March 30, 2011 – April 23, 2011 affects YOUR SIGN:
Mercury retrograde usually implies a period of setbacks and changes of plan while sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a bit of a mess. Making a decision between these dates is not favoured, as the results won't be very satisfying. Signing important contracts or documents is also discouraged. (more...)
Should never be offered to the mouth of a stranger,
Only to someone who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you."
-- Khwāja Šamsu d-Dīn Muḥammad Hāfez-e Šīrāzī, known by his pen name Hāfez (1325–1389) a Persian lyric poet.
As soon as I read this it stunned me with a resonance through my whole body. This is what you have been saying all along, begging me to open my eyes and see. Months ago when I threw myself away, and refused to see it, even though what I was doing went against everything I have fiercely wanted all my life. (more...)
Often we give little thought to what falls out of our mouths. That small comment someone made years ago in passing that you never forgot. The thing you wish you'd never said. The ones you wish you had. Words can devastate a person. They can move a person to rise out of hopelessness. They can mislead. They can make people rally for justice. Words can change lives forever.
I won't forget this video. I need to really pay attention to what I'm doing. What I've done.
It was a long time ago, but I'm sorry for what I said to you Renee.
Spring is driving me crazy. My nesting instincts are kicking my butt. I'm about to leave on a trip, may end up travelling by land all the way from Nicaragua to Brazil over the next few months and instead of packing light I've bought a double hammock with mosquito net and bedding, massage oil, herbal medicines and oils, all these cosy things that smell nice and feel good. This is not a good time for me to be packing for a major trip like this. Clearly. I just crave having and sharing home comforts right now. It will be interesting to see if I can pull it off, do both travel and have home comforts, without much effort.
And I keep seeing things like this. Which isn't helping. I am homesick. I want to rest. I. want. to. nest. But I don't want to settle just anywhere... somehow I will know when I find it.
