"It's hard convincing yourself that where you are at the moment is your home, and it's not always where your heart is. Sometimes I win and sometimes not."
-- Jonathan Carroll
Megan Clemence
We lose it— it disappears, evaporates. The edge, the courage, the black madness and abandon of the young. The dazzle of living one hundred percent in the moment. It goes away, leaks out of us like water through cracks. Cracks that come from growing older. They start when you buy whole life insurance policies and mortgages, or hear the results of a not-so-good physical check-up. They start when there’s a need rather than a desire for warm baths. Safety over spontaneity, comfort over commotion. Part of him hated it. Not the growing older, but becoming tame, upstanding, predictable, half-hearted, skeptical about too much.

Dreams aren’t dangerous until we think of them as real possibilities. It’s our own fault if we allow that to happen. Dreams make no promises.

People are supposed to keep us sane at difficult times.But sometimes things are better at saving us.Your afternoon cup of hot tea with rum,a beautiful poem someone sent,or the train trip where there was nothing to do but stare out the window while your mind worked its way out of the sad-swamp.Mundane things that through some kind of small quiet magic,firmly ground or hold us when we feel everything else slipping away
