“I wake to sleep and take my waking slow.  
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.  
I learn by going where I have to go.” – Theodore Roethke

endless road…

“It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home.’ But then you come home and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it seems like from then on there’s always this yearning for some place that doesn’t exist. I felt that. Still do. I’m never completely at home anywhere.” ~ Danzy Senna

“Man starts over again everyday, in spite of all he knows, against all he knows.”

It is the story I am writing in my head
The one of which not a word is said
The one where the impossible is possible
You know?
The one in which love conquers all.

The one that offers me comfort
I can be, where me is always me
The one that creates happy dreaming
Where I can live in the sky
And breathe in the sea.

“When I awake thinking of dreams I slept on, I often wonder if the dreams ever wake up thinking of me?” ~ Anthony Liccione

“A dreamer is one
who can only find his way by moonlight,
his punishment is that he sees the dawn
before the rest of the world.”  ~ Oscar Wilde

what if…

“And what if
in your sleep
you dreamed
And what if
in your dream
you went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower
And what if
when you awoke
you had that flower in your hand
Ah, what then?”
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Complete Poems

my secret garden…

 

“I live there…
where the birds are infinite
everywhere

where they flee
It’s a place your eyes can wander
but never see

Where everyone accepts me,
without any pretense

It’s a place your mind can picture
but never really comprehend.”
~ Sanober Khan
