For my other lovely anon
Beyond my anxiety, beyond this writing,
the universe waits, inexhaustible, inviting.
Jorge Luis Borges (via fuckyeahjorgeluisborges)
When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
Rumi, What Do I Want? (via ifnothingelsebekind)
The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.
Junot Díaz (via kamara)
Calo Carratala, Rio Itaya (Pencil on Paper), 1996

I think the biggest thing I hope comes through with the songs in empathy for the fact that we’re all kind of in this together. And whatever plight or suffering you might feel, or have endured—everyone else has too. Maybe worse. Maybe more. Maybe less. I think that’s one great function of music and art and communicating through this abstract symbolism, is just that it can ring really true. It can soften the blow of living. You can realize that, OK, maybe some of life is completely unpleasant. But the fact that you can understand it and you can see it in other people and you can empathize with them, it softens the blow. I know that’s what I get out of listening to music.
