notice how to be

A self that goes on changing,

is a self that goes on living.

~Virginia Woolf

these visions of a better world fall short compared to this…

inquiry for today~ it’s time to be real….

being inspired

The perilous time for the most highly gifted is not youth. The holy sensibilities of genius- for all the sensibilities of genius are holy- keep their possessor essentially unhurt as long as animal spirits and the idea of being young last; but the perilous season is middle age, when a false wisdom tempts them to doubt the divine origin of the dreams of their youth; when the world comes to them, not with the song of the siren, against which all books warn us, but as a wise old man counseling acquiescence in what is below them.

~Elizabeth Peabody
