Where We're Goin'

Buckle up ‘cuz the wheels are startin’ to turn
Come along for the ride ‘cuz we’re gonna learn
Ain’t got no guide our compass is broken
But we know
Just where we’re goin’.

It’s been a minute since we found ourselves at the beginning
It’s been a minute since we finally felt like we’ve been winning
It’s time to break the bank and break the molds that we’ve been filling
Take a moment to respect the hearts and minds that we’ve been given

Please excuse me while I take a page from Elle Luna
And make a mess out of the cleanliness inside this room
Paint picasso and pay homage to the ones who showed us
Lonely is the foe of should but friend to those of us with motive

Solitary is the tree that bears the fruit that we call focus
Focus is the light we shed upon our heart to make it open
Dreams are plans we make but all too often bury deep inside
So open up your heart tell me your dreams and I will tell you mine

Buckle up ‘cuz the wheels are startin’ to turn,
Come along for the ride ‘cuz we’re gonna learn.
Ain’t got no guide our compass is broken.
But we know. 
Just where we’re goin’.

Progress often feels like I’ve been driving in the wrong direction
For once I feel like I belong inside the student section
That’s what happens when you finally find out what you’re meant to be
The bottom drops and you enjoy the freedom we call falling free.

I ain’t tryna make it to the top of anybody’s tree
I’m tryna stick a lemon in the ground and plant a lemon tree
Build a place where honeybees can come and find their inner bee
And hang a sign that says “if you like lemons take ‘em, these are free”

Ask a stranger what he needs instead of trying to hide
Try and make a difference in another person’s life
Be the statue when your neighbor’s feeling like a pigeon
Listen, with no restrictions hug ‘em, pin ‘em with a ribbon.

Buckle up ‘cuz the wheels are startin’ to turn,
Come along for the ride ‘cuz we’re gonna learn.
Ain’t got no guide our compass is broken.
But we know. 
Just where we’re goin’.

Song inspired by Elle Luna's The Crossroads of Should and Must

Seriously, pin somebody with a ribbon. #billiondreams

Morning fabric sample dye tests in perhaps the greatest #Artbnb of all time in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

I stumbled across this comment by Kandinsky in the preface to his timeless manifesto, Concerning the Spiritual in Art. I underlined it. And starred it. And have been thinking about it for days. Over coffee this morning I read it again, except this time I replaced “work” with “live.” Imagine a world where we embodied the expression of our inner lives. To live for this end and this end only. Terrifyingly beautiful.

What's Inspiring Recently

I’ve recently been checking some writings in medium.com. I found the site has inspired me so much. What makes medium.com fun it’s the way the writers write, they write and attach some doodles they’ve created along with their writings. I don’t think all the writers do that, but some of them do. here, I would like to share some of my favorite ones;
