words mean a lot to me. they have the ability to define moments, they’re capable of inspiring lives, they’re all we have to touch others. words can mean a lot, but they can also mean little, and what i love most is that underneath it all, once we take away the looks that we covet, the money we work hard to achieve, the lives that we’re born into, the only thing that remains important is the simplicity of words.
and these are words that have helped map my life.
“I do understand. . . And, there are times I look at the cool convertible in the garage and wish I could just drive and drive and drive…and leave it all behind.
But we don’t because who we are is right there inside, not “out there” somewhere.”
I go in search of a Great Perhaps.
Jose Ortega y Gasset:
Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.
Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.
Unbeing dead isn’t being alive.
