Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

They would twirl the emotional kaleidoscope until it gave them a picture that was comfortable.

Playlist pieces

“they say that i can move the mountains and send them falling to the sea. they say that i can walk on water if i would follow and believe with faith like a child.”

I’ve been alone, and lonely,
and I know the difference now.

I can help

slated in mused at 3:02 pm

Worse than not being able to do anything to help someone you care about, is not being allowed to do anything to help someone you care about. Not being able to help, when you want to, is sad and frustrating and painful; not being permitted to help, when you are able to, is the saddest.

slated in mused at 5:44 pm

Increasingly over the past ~two years, whenever someone asks me or I hear them ask somebody else “How are you doing?”, no matter whether the answer is “good” or “well”, my head reminds me “Superman does good, I’m doing well.” And then sometimes I think about it for a little while. Like so.

Good things can happen without being requested, but wishes can’t come true unless they are wished.
