Something strange has been happening to me. Mysterious letters and packages arriving by mail. All of my friends deny having anything to do with it.

I’ve been sleuthing like mad, though, and I feel confident that I am making headway.

I don’t know which life I am living now.
A gentle wind leans into the trees. Evening
crawls up from the river bank. The words we never
say are looking for some path away from here,
maybe from that town a few hills over where
the leaves forget the earth that waits for them.
Richard Jackson, opening strophe to “Fear,” from Resonance: Poems (The Ashland Poetry Press, 2010)
A man, to be greatly good, must imagine intensely and comprehensively; he must put himself in the place of another and of many others; the pains and pleasures of his species must become his own.
Percy Bysshe Shelley (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket - safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

"I need a new test
Then I set out to choose someone to
Light the soul like a kiln”

Okay, before you watch this do you know what the Talking Carl app is?  Well it’s his app where this little red fucker repeats back anything you say to him in a higher voice.  That’s all I’m saying.  Now click play and get ready to not be able to breathe

I just cried and peed at the same time jfc
