"Because our entire universe is made up of consciousness, we never really experience the universe directly we just experience our consciousness of the universe, our perception of it, so right, our only universe is perception."
-Alan Moore


I met this guy on a bus in Ghana on my last week and gave him my email. I figured, what the heck? A few weeks later he sends me a friend request on FB and I figured, what the heck? So, I added him. He sent me messages every few weeks or so and I figured I’d respond. He was actually pretty nice and didn’t ask me to marry him immediately like many other guys I had met. It’s now been almost 2 years since I’ve been back and he still sends me messages. He’s now in the States and is in NY and asking if I’d meet him… What the heck?

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
