look closer

Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.

And I’m glad you got away
But I’m still stuck out here
My clothes are soaking wet
From your brother’s tears

Metaphors, by Keaton Henson

catastrophe equals opportunity.

"You want to know how California got it’s name? It’s not named after some explorer, or king. Nope. Someone made the name up—a writer. He just pulled it out of his imagination in the 16th Century, in Spain. He made up this place where there was unlimited gold, and pearls, and beautiful fierce women who wore gold armor, and rode wild beasts. And he called it California. It’s true. It was a bestseller back then. Charlie told me that. He said I could look it up if I didn’t believe him. But I didn’t need to."

—Miranda, from King of California

"It takes a lot of nerve to destroy this wondrous earth. We’re only human; this at least we’ve learned."
