I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

All A Gamble?

The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing
over and over again and expecting different results.
-Albert Einstein-

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way.
Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real.
What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer?
Because it feels so good when I stop.


“Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass.
And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim.
The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long.
We are tired, we are scared, denying it doesn't change the truth.
Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world. Head on, guns blazing.
De Nile. It's not just a river in Egypt, it's a freakin' ocean.
So how do you keep from drowning in it?”

We don't wish for the easy stuff. We wish for big things. Things that are ambitious, out of reach.
We wish because we need help and we're scared and we know we may be asking too much.
We still wish, though, because sometimes they come true.

The past is only the future with the lights on.
