The difference between fashion and style?
One is others telling you who you are,
the other is you telling them.
Was aus Liebe getan wird, geschieht
immer jenseits von Gut und Böse.

What is done out of love always

happens beyond good and evil.
~Nietzsche
Oh to ride the wind, to tread the air above the din.
Oh to laugh aloud, dancing as we fought the crowd.
~Robert Plant

This morning, for the first time,
I could really fly in my dreams.
Wasn't it a millionaire who said
"Imagine no possessions"?
~Elvis Costello
All male costume in the West derives
either from warfare or sport.
~G. Bruce Boyer
Everything we know
has a history.
~Jared Anderson

You shouldn’t ask for anything
you’re unwilling to work for.

Finding presence when difficult patterns
arise is less about stilling them than
about being able to observe them.

Running beyond the herd is likely
more a pathology than a virtue - 
one I admire and value.
