“It is Summer, it is the solstice the crowd is cheering, the crowd is laughing in detail permanently, seriously without thought.” #WilliamCarlosWilliams . #nationalselfieday #really? #wtf #whatevs #summer #solstice #poetry

We love this photo and quote! Thanks, @mademoisellechelsea! . #Repost with @get_repost ・・・ I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull, a kind of a sport, as you might say. But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have been just landed in them, usually — their paths were laid that way, as you put it. But I expect they had lots of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten. We hear about those as just went on — and not all to a good end, mind you; at least not to what folk inside a story and not outside it call a good end. - SAMWISE GAMGEE, The Two Towers | . . . 🌙 Today was a trying day, but somehow the evening still comes. I find myself grateful for those friends & family who lend a listening ear, provide a laugh, or offer words of comfort. And I will wait patiently for a new morning, full of new possibilities. #namaste

“Watching a coast as it slips by the ship is like thinking about an enigma. There it is before you, smiling, frowning, inviting, grand, mean, insipid, or savage, and always mute with an air of whispering, ‘Come and find out.’” #JosephConrad #HeartOfDarkness
