“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.”
― Walt Whitman
Understand, I’ll slip quietly
away from the noisy crowd
when I see the pale
stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.
I’ll pursue solitary pathways
through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too.
— Rainer Maria Rilke

“Did your Mom ever tell you, ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything’? She was right – and talking nicely also applies when you’re talking to yourself, even inside your head.” — Victoria Moran

Out to Play
No hurt survives
for long without
our help, she said
and then she kissed
me and sent me out
to play again
for the rest
of my life.

Amazing design I commissioned from the insanely talented Zachary Smith using some of my words. If you are not already following him, you are doing it very wrong. This turned out even better than I could have ever expected.
