The Glue

You are never as broken as you think you are.

The Promise

There will be light every step of the way. This, I can promise you.

The Signs

The dreams are real. The magic is real. The angels are real. Guiding your hand. Touching your heart. Whispering in your ear

“Do you have the faith in yourself that we do?”

The Building

You weaved a mystery for the world just by being who you are. It was only when we had some perspective that we realised how beautiful it was.

Thank you for being you.

The Journey

Pick up stones along the way. Keep the ones you like. You don't need all of them.

The Creation

Let the joy be in the making.

The Unexpected

Random acts of kindness are the only acts of kindness worth a damn. Surprise someone today. Surprise yourself. Constantly.

The Filtering

You look at the world through tinted glasses. The tinted glasses are not the world. The world is the world.

Take your glasses off.

The Fear

I asked if you’d seen any good horror movies lately. You said

“There aren’t any good horror movies anymore. In the 90’s we were scared of the end of the world, so we made movies about that. In the 80’s it was serial killers and psychopaths. Today, we just turn on the news."

It would be nice to have good horror movies again.

The Freeze

The blue shone through you like a cold light. I could feel what you felt. It poured out your eyes into mine.

Bathed in light, I walked towards you and became a part of the colouring. A part of the hue.

We painted a life.

The Sheen

What you make by hand will never match what you make by heart.

The Turning

Spinning in infinity. Searching for the silence.

You found it near the edge of here and there. On the borders of now and forever.

The Stairs

If you don't know whether you're coming or going maybe it's time to just stop.

The Falling

You might be on your back but at least the view is nice.

The Anchor

Hold the peace inside yourself. Do not let it depend on other people, the day you’re having, the work you have to do or any of the other flotsam and jetsam of life.

Let it depend on you and the choice you make to feel it.

The Endless

An infinite amount of worlds presents an infinite amount of possibilities. Anything is not only possible, it’s probable. So right now, somewhere in the depths of space, on a planet exactly like ours, a person exactly like you stood up and learned to fly.

The Far

You got yourself up there. You can get yourself back down.

The Number

Two gives you perspective. There is you and there is me. There is night and there is day. A sun and a moon. Love and hate. Sadness and joy. War and peace. Harmony and chaos. Without one, we can never have the other. And to create anything new, a third, you first need two.

Two is important.

The Space

You left. I stayed. We both cried.

The Advice

Pay no attention to these words.

Life is the only teacher worth listening to.

The Gift

Your hurt. Your anger. Your pain. Your sorrow. Your frustrations. These are all there for a reason. Use them.

Be inspired.

Do something.

Change the world.

The Pretending

You are whoever you believe you are. You are however you believe you are.

Pretend to be whoever or however you want to be. You will become whatever you pretend.

The Explosions

It is only when you rediscover your sense of child-like wonder that you hold the world in the palm of your hand.

You need to play more.

The Search

You will only ever find what you're looking for. If you want to find something new and beautiful, you need to start looking for something new and beautiful.

The Trees

Look up. Or you'll miss all the good parts.

The Fear

If you believe in a god and you are correct, you will become an eternal moment of radiance. If you don’t believe in a god, and a benevolent god exists, the same applies.

If there is no god, and we are alone on this spinning ball, then you will return to the earth and slowly become a part of everything. Every breath. Every tree. Every flower. Every cloud.

Every word.

You never need to be afraid.

The Joy

The best way to find your own happiness, is to help others find theirs.

The Obstacle

Slip behind. Slip over. Slip under. Slip around. Or you can spend your whole life just trying to get through.

The Rain

Never hide from the storm. You need to revel in it.

The Glow

Breathe in the light. Breathe out the dark.

The Serious

You had no idea what was going on in this picture. I still don’t.

The Film

The movies you make in your head are the reality you live each day. Be careful what you tell the director.

The Bully

No one would ever think such mean thoughts about you. No one would ever say something so hurtful. No one would ever hit you so hard

Except yourself.

You are always the meanest person you know. And only you can stop you.

The Library

You need to listen to everyone. Learn from everything. And believe none of it.

The Feet

Walk your own path. It has the best scenery along the way.

The Balance

Never love to be loved in return. You are playing a fool's game. The love you have is its own reward.

The Winter

I told you it was cold. You told me “Summer’s mosquitoes are quickly forgotten in winter.”

I only really get it now.

The Dragons

The smoke drifted through the sunlight streaming from the window and the light made it more than what it was. Lazy gray dragons, slowly turning and somersaulting as they chased each other through the air. You were there. But you weren’t. There was such beauty right in front of you but you couldn’t see it.

Please come back.

We miss you. So much.

The Craft

Science and art. Washing dishes and adding numbers. Driving taxis and sailing ships. Find what you love. It doesn’t matter what it is or how much money you’ll make or what people will think of you. Just find it and hold on tightly.

The Drop

Trust those around you. We all share the same basic human condition. We all want. We all need. We all love. We all hurt. So trust them. Even when you’re falling.

We all fall sometimes.

The Ghosts

Buildings crumble. People die. Friends move away. But your memory of them will always stand. And they will be as real there, inside you, as they were when they were standing next to you.

Your memories are real. They are the dreams of the past. And they will live with you always.

The Distance

Standing on the edge of the water, I looked out towards a land I could not see. Somehow, I knew you were doing the same. Thinking of me. Thinking of you.

Saturday, September 15, 2007

The Reflection

You told me that there were two of me, in me. The me I pretended to be. And the real me. You asked me to guess which one you loved more.

You kissed me before I could answer and in that moment, I knew.

The Surface

When you are happy, you will only remember the happy times in your life. When you are sad, you will only remember the sad times. There are two sides to everything. And life is never one colour.

Remember this.

The Ignored

You are constantly surrounded by incredible beauty wherever you go. Stop. And look around you.

The Burning

You were tired and weary, your eyes heavy. I’d have given anything to be able to just pick you up and carry you home. I’d have run the whole way. But I couldn’t.

The sun is up and you’re still there, finishing what you started. My arms will be ready.

The Wedding

Sometimes the sun shines and it still rains. The weather changes all the time. You can too.

The Free

You make your own choices every day. Whether or not to get out of bed. To smoke. To drink. To drive. To walk. To have a job. To go to that job. To hate. To love. To live.

Sometimes you forget how in control you really are.

The Faith

Believe in a god. Believe in a song. Believe in a friend. Believe in a warm bed. Believe in tomorrow. Believe in love. Believe in everything. Believe in nothing. Believe in whatever you want. But always believe in yourself.

The Knot

You’re all tangled up in other people. Their worries have become your worries. Their expectations of you have become the expectations you have for yourself. Their dreams are slowly turning into your nightmares.

You are not other people.
