"It’s been about 15 years since I’ve been using the internet. Although I use it mostly for research and interests, I have always been aware and intrigued by its affect on social norms and communication. It’s like a nonstop screening process for “like-minds” and such. One would probably think that I, the “introvert”, the “isolated”, the “a-loner”, the deeply private….would find this inviting. Oh the irony (lol)."
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow;
I am sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake to greet the dawn
I am the day as it is born.
I am birds in circling flight;
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
— Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye
"Some people believe there are monsters under their beds. Instead of telling them how to defeat the monsters (which only perpetuates their belief in monsters), I’d rather help them by contributing to their understanding that the monster does not exist. That there is nothing to fear. That they are not victims…but creators and/or participants in their own BS."

"Sleeping dreams are a beautiful time for the mind to play freely…to process without distractions."

"We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves."
— Andy Goldsworthy (via selenemooneffe)
