“We are friends and I do like to pass the day with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. I wouldn't mind washing up beside you, dusting beside you, reading the back half of the paper while you read the front. We are friends and I would miss you, do miss you and think of you very often.”

--Jeanette Winterson

This is one of my all time favorite quotes. Ever.

Symptoms of Inner Peace
Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts(l) of a great many have already been exposed to inner peace and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

Some signs and symptoms of inner peace:

• A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
• An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
• A loss of interest in judging other people.
• A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
• A loss of interest in conflict.
• A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom).
• Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
• Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.
• Frequent attacks of smiling.
• An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
• An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.(})

(Not sure who penned this. But I find it to be lovely.)

The artist's experience lies so unbelievably close to the sexual, to its pain and its pleasure, that the two phenomena are really just different forms of one and the same longing and bliss.

A Word In Our Head

Can we write from nothing just a word in our head
take it and tease it out like a thread
till finally we make a story unfold
a little part of us that needs to be told
take a word like blame i have thought it just now
what would i say that would not start a row
if i blamed you on this or i blamed you on that
should i just stay silent remove the tongue from the cat
does anyone really see what they do
not only to others but to ourselves too
do we pay attention to what we might say
that tears at another in a negative way
do we watch what we do when our loved ones look on
and then sit and wonder why now they are gone
it is easy for us to be our own judge
easy sentences for all to lessen the drudge
of our days as we walk to the end we must meet
till our final judge meets us and we beg be descreet
look in the mirror and stay there a while
and pick just one fault you have not seen and then smile
and understand what you learned for today...
that none of us are perfect in any way
to seldom have blame there is something you can do...
do onto others as you would have them do onto you
so what you dont like never do to a soul
before you make a decision... know, you must pay the toll
and bear that in mind and live happy and true
and do onto others as you would have them do onto you.
