person quotes

Love.

I’m experiencing an intensely difficult day/week/month/year & I wish I knew how to open up to you all about it, other than through art, but I know I’m in no way alone & that gives me strength. I can be awfully silent at times, as I tend to turn inward, but I’m always listening & we’re all in this thing together. I love you all… Truly, madly, deeply. Thank you for your support, especially when I don’t know how to ask for help & try to just brush it off. Here is a quote that always helps lift me up…

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.” — Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living
