“We are, unbelievably, still flying over Russia, which continues to be stupidly big. Really enormous. Far bigger than necessary. We’ve been in the air now for about a week, and it doesn’t look like we’ll be landing until the last syllable of recorded time. So, if anyone on board knows any card tricks, ghost stories, or would like to have some sex, please do make your way to the flight deck. Thank you.” - Douglas in Cabin Pressure 2.06: Limerick

It’s hard trying to keep up on the important things I want to know before going to Burning Man vs. al these stories of other peoples experiences. It’s like going onto a message board and watching someone ask someone else what they should do when they do acid for the first time. JUST DO IT, as LeBoof would say.
The mass saturation of experience too easily can rip us away from our own. And who is to say that our own won’t be better? Or at least different.
Do you. That’s all you have to do. There is no right answer. There is no correct way to live. Fins what makes YOU happy. I don’t know why this is bugging me so much lately. We’re a world of thinkers and dreamers who have been sold a can of paint to cover our ideas with something more conventional that those in charge have deemed ‘correct.’

“A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time, proof that humans can work magic.” –Carl Sagan
“Don’t tell anyone…but this is one of my favorite songs.” –Dad listening to Bye Bye Bye by ‘NSync (I’m telling EVERYONE)
