To Become Spring

"Of course I'll hurt you. Of course you'll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other.  But this is the very condition of existence.  To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter.  To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence."

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Well said EikoHara.


eat, sleep, rave, repeat.

since its october (8 days deep) and really starting to feel like Fall it means music festival season is over. (womp, womp, womp..) It's still warm and the frost hasn't started on the ground but, it has started started to chill my heart. Until next season my fellow festival goers. I dedicate this post to the amazing people I was lucky enough to dance, laugh, listen, and rave with.  I love you all, until next year.

Food For Thought:

"When you're happy for no reason, you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them. You don't need to manipulate the world around you to try to make yourself happy. You live from happiness, rather than for happiness."

Marci Shimoff


Circumstance: An event or fact that causes or helps to cause something to happen, typically something undesirable.

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." 

George Bernard Shaw
