The End Of Nothing Really Important









And just as we built them, we took the buildings down, brick by brick. We took the steel and the gold and the silver and the oil and put them back beneath the skin of the earth where they belonged. We turned the roads back to rocks and grass and flowers. We told the animals "We're sorry." We took our clothes off and felt the wind on our skin and you and I, we were not ashamed.

Then we turned around, and walked back into the sea.

Absolutely gorgeous. For once, I’m without words :)


"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach.

The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."

Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged.

Which is the worst sin?

to betray or to defile
to pollute or to extract
to abandon or to abuse
to rape or to to 'modify'
to lie or to tell the truth
to forget or to remember
to decay or to grow
to not love or not to care
to be born or to die

It depends
are you human?
