“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”—
“No matter how upside down it all may temporarily appear, we will have no fear because we know this secret: life is crazily in love with us — wildly and innocently in love with us. The universe always gives us exactly what we need, exactly when we need it.”—~ Rob Brezny (via gatekeeper)
“Some people pass through your life and you never think about them again. Some you think about and wonder what ever happened to them. Some you wonder if they ever wonder what happened to you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do.”—The Wonder Years (via littlemiss)
I found this perfect old song somewhere the other night while attempting to make my Winter-loathing mom a Christmas CD called “Happy.” It’s been stuck in my head ever since, this Kermit-evoking soundtrack to childhood, applicable all over again.
So here it is for all of us: Indomitable proof that we made it through and this sweetness remains.
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered when wished on the morning star? Somebody thought of that and someone believed it. Look what it’s done so far. What’s so amazing that keeps us star gazing and what do we think we might see?
…Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices? I’ve heard them calling my name. Is this the sweet sound that called the young sailors. The voice might be one and the same. I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it. It’s something that I’m supposed to be. Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers and me.
Today when I saw you I knew it was just like the first time When you met my eyes I came close And I felt like the first time
To hold back my fear and feel you so near I’ve never been this far before To hold back my fear and feel you so near I’m scared of falling into deep this time
Do I need a reason to tell you why I’m singing you this song Do I need a reason to show you that I know where I belong Whenever I am weary I lean on this feeling that I have I am so much stronger now Thankful, yes I am
