    I wonder how much of what weighs me down is not mine to carry

    Solitude

    I have a house where I go
    When there's too many people
    I have a house where I go
    Where no one can be;

    I have a house where I go
    Where nobody ever says 'No'
    Where no one says anything - so

    There is no one but me

    AA Milne

    Waking up this morning, I smile, Twenty four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all the beings with eyes of compassion.

    ^ By making mistakes, I believe you can learn some of the best lessons in life IMO.

    To the Nightingale

    On what secret night in England

    Or by the incalculable constant Rhine,

    Lost among all the nights of my nights,

    Carried to my unknowing ear

    Your voice, burdened with mythology,

    Nightingale of Virgil, of the Persians?

    Perhaps I never heard you, yet my life

    I bound to your life, inseparably.


    A wandering spirit is your symbol

    In a book of enigmas. El Marino

    Named you the siren of the woods

    And you sing through Juliet's night

    And in the intricate Latin pages

    And from the pine-trees of that other,

    Nightingale of Germany and Judea,

    Heine, mocking, burning, mourning.


    Keats heard you for all, everywhere.

    There's not one of the bright names

    The people of the earth have given you

    That does not yearn to match your music,

    Nightingale of shadows. The Muslim

    Dreamed you drunk with ecstasy

    His breast trans-pierced by the thorn

    Of the sung rose that you redden

    With your last blood. Assiduously

    I plot these lines in twilight emptiness,

    Nightingale of the shores and seas,

    Who in exaltation, memory and fable

    Burn with love and die melodiously.


    Jorge Luis Borges

    really hits home

    Maybe it?s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there.
