"I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down." — The point of writing for Jack Kerouac

Dear Sun, thank you so much for rising today. You are one faithful and persistent star… #iloveyou — Growing anxious by the day, because, if I don’t get hit by an asteroid & live to my 90’s, I only have around 21,000 sunrises left. That’s not much at all, I’m greedy & needy for more life. There are only 2 solutions I can think of: A) Immortality — which I have no idea how to reach (through writing, maybe?) and, according to vampires, it can get boring. B) An organic microchip I’m working on, that will grant me full presence in 2 places at the same time - which would automatically double my sunrises. Meanwhile, I still have to manage the art of paying complete, undivided attention to THIS single, beautiful, unrepeatable and perfectly imperfect moment.

Missed the sunrise this morning so I quietly snacked on the leftovers & they tasted like the sometimes blue, others yellow, untitled light between my heartbeat & yours.

Some days I could die of a beauty overdose, under the bittersweet curse (or blessing) of being able to experience it all, yet only put into words the tip of the iceberg. Perhaps if I showed you, instead of telling you, then you will feel it too.

Sometimes I feel too heavy to walk on water, and too light to revert its course or shape a canyon on my way to the ocean. We’re just these short-lived thirsty drops with question marks instead of eyes & hearts turned art. But isn’t that ocean made of hopeful & persistent drop after drop after drop, drop, drop?… Great things start small.

BABY STEPS BACK TO YOU: Open your eyes. Notice the wonder. Breathe in your infinite possibilities. Breathe out your perceived limitations. Where there is life, there’s a will. Where there’s a will, there’s creativity. Where there is creativity, there’s a version of You waiting to be imagined, explored & manifested. You’re not supposed to ‘have’ a beautiful day/week/love/life. You’re supposed to MAKE it.
