"Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. there is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there." 
~ Henry Miller, Sexus

“There is nothing more to be said or to be done to-night, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and the still more miserable ways of our fellowmen.”

- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, “The Case of the Five Orange Pips”

"An enchanted life has many moments when the heart is overwhelmed with beauty and the imagination is electrified by some haunting quality in the world or by a spirit or voice speaking from deep within a thing, a place, or a person. Enchantment may be a state of rapture and ecstasy in which the soul comes to the foreground, and the literal concerns of survival and daily preoccupation at least momentarily fade into the background." ~Thomas Moore

"We were a silent, hidden thought in the folds of oblivion,
and we have become a voice that causes the heavens to tremble."

From the five things make a post file:

- I have the most awesome rp partners in the known universe.  I have been pushed and pulled and stretched and forced to reimagine, reinvent, and craft whole cloth for back story, character motivation, mannerisms, flaws and phobias, wants, needs, desires, anxieties, passions, and myriad other things I can't even wrap my brain around.  I am so lucky to have found you guys, I can't even begin to express.  I only hope I can find the gumption to take these lessons back to my drawing board and use them to craft the most amazing stories you've ever read (and possibly go on to inspire someone else to puppet my creations, for their own edification, or possibly just gratification, whichever they need more.)

- I need to get back on the 750 words a day of orig!fic bandwagon.  I love it when the OC's get loud.  And I have another from Sea of Dust standing just off stage, I just need to coax him out into the limelight so I can see what he's all about.

- I want to start collecting red typewriters.  I may have to do this in icon form, as I do not have the physical space to collect actual red typewriters.

- I have too many art forms, but that's okay.  I am six squares away from finishing the blocks for Lizard Ridge.

- I am insane, but it's a good kind of insane.  You should visit my reality sometime.  I think you'd like it here.  If only for a short visit.

+ I may also just be operating on too little sleep and one of those little energy drinks that wrings your brain out like a wet rag.  Also, brain chemistry has not received the benefit of Omega 3 supplements in over a month.  I bought some, I just can't find where they got put.  I should probably do this before I seriously crash and burn.  Yay screwy brain chemistry!

There is a test to determine whether someone is toxic or nourishing in your relationship with them. Here is the test: You have spent some time with this person, either you have a drink or go for dinner or you go to a ball game. It doesn’t matter very much but at the end of that time you observe whether you are more energised or less energised. Whether you are tired or whether you are exhilarated. If you are more tired then you have been poisoned. If you have more energy you have been nourished.

"Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear.

If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace, but we would be hollow, empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead."

~Joss Whedon
