Years ago I would play this song constantly after I found out my friend died from cancer.
Don’t you know that when you stand you stand up for the both of us
Remember that when the darkness looms
Every tear you shed is cleansing, taking the pain away from you
I left you blueberries in the fridge, the little things that I can do
You’re not doing this alone.
Heavenfaced | The National | Trouble Will Find Me, 2013
I could walk out, but I won’t,
In my mind I am in your arms.
I wish someone would take my place,
Can’t face heaven all heavenfaced.
No one’s careful all the time,
If you lose me, I’m gonna die.
Let’s go wait out in the fields with the ones we love.
I look up — many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big — but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity.
That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you.
That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive…
- Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson [ x ]
In the old days if someone had a secret they didn’t want to share, they went up a mountain, found a tree, carved a hole in it and whispered the secret into the tree. Then they covered it with mud and leave the secret there forever.
