โ€œYou never change things by fighting the existing reality.” ~ R. B. Fuller

โ€• Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
IMG_2361
โ€œBe not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.โ€
โ€• Ralph Waldo Emerson
IMG_2355
โ€œYou look at where you’re going and where you are and it never makes sense, but then you look back at where you’ve been and a pattern seems to emerge.โ€
โ€• Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values
IMG_2351
“In it.”

COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA: INFINITE INTROSPECTION

IMG_2030
โ€œThe past was but the cemetery of our illusions: one simply stubbed one’s toes on the gravestones.โ€ โ€• ร‰mile Zola
IMG_1938
โ€œHappiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.โ€
โ€• Nathaniel Hawthorne
IMG_1968
โ€œLiving, there is no happiness in that. Living: carrying oneโ€™s painful self through the world.
But being, being is happiness. Being: Becoming a fountain, a fountain on which the universe falls like warm rain.โ€ โ€• Milan Kundera
IMG_1971
โ€œFor whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.โ€
โ€• E.E. Cummings
IMG_2042
โ€œSolitude is the house of peace.โ€
โ€• T.F. Hodge
IMG_2003
“…the ghosts you chase you never catch.โ€
โ€• John Malkovich
IMG_1933
โ€œI am here; and here is nowhere in particular.โ€
โ€• William Golding

โ€œHe was unheeded, happy, and near to the wild heart of life.” – Jon Krakauer
