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.

Exhaustion and Ataris.

It's 4:11 in the morning.. I'm lying awake. I have to get up in 3 hours.. Less than 3 hours, actually. Insomnia is driving me insane right now..

It takes lying awake, exhausted, unable to fall asleep (and, therefore, escape consciousness), to get legitimate thinking done, it seems. The only time I can truly untangle the mess of thoughts/ideas/confusion in my mind is when sleep is dangling just inches from my grasp. Cruel.. Unnerving.. But, apparently, effective.

Now I'm certainly WAY past exhaustion. All aboard for Dreamland... Next stop--Slumber.

Ataris Lyrics:

"Sneak out of your window, darlin'
Let's live like outlaws, honey
We'll never look back."

"I'm trying to believe in you;
this world sold its fate for parking lots and drunk sincerity."

"I will to you the smell of burning leaves
Rusted windchimes and the feverish glow of fireflies
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers"

"sometimes you gotta stop and remember
that your not gonna live forever.
be young, think smart, stay true
and just follow your heart."

"today I made you a mix tape
to say exactly how I feel inside
and make you feel it to.
these are the songs that make me smile
and cry myself to sleep at night
when I'm lying without you."

"chasing the sun isn't my kind of fun.
I'd rather sit and catch snowflakes on my tongue.
when summers gone I won't be sad
as you cling on to all the good times that you've had"
