People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.
(Carl R. Rogers)
If you stay with me in bed all day. I won’t complain. I won’t judge or ask questions. I won’t tell you ways in which you can improve or bring up shortcomings from your past. If you stay with me in bed all day I will love you because you alone are enough.
It is your job - when you’re stuck on an on ramp in a sea of red break lights & have no guarantee of ever making your way home - to see beauty.
To see a light, a spark, a reflection, the slightest soft effervescence of hope.
You must make this your job.
Promise me that at the end of each day, no matter where you are or what you become, you’ll stop still and look to the sky.
Take in it’s colors, in all their distinction, because like this day, they’ll never occur quite the same.
I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless and I know it’s not cheap. Probably not even real.
(Mark Z. Danielewski)
