Collabor88

Opens on the 8th of every month

There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.

“That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end.”
– Elizabeth Wurtzel

Travel far enough, you meet yourself…

 

Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. – Anthony Bourdain

Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people…

 

The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.”

―Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

…There’s a story behind every person..There’s a reason why they’re the way they are…

“There’s a story behind every person..There’s a reason why they’re the way they are. They aren’t just like that because they want to be. Something in the past created them, and sometimes it’s impossible to fix. You need to understand and try to change the way you think about them. Remember, sometimes you only know their name, not their story and we can’t push people to tell us their story.”
– Hanny Quinn

…Its the regularity of doing something makes the person happy rather than sitting idle…

 

“Sitting makes us think of standing
Our current stance keeps on demanding
We wish to fly without the wings
Puppets move before pulling the strings”
– Munia Khan

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone…

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.                    – Langston Hughes

I Don’t Want to be Saved…

 

The only people for me are the mad ones: the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who… burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles. – Jack Kerouac

Foreign Queen

“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” – D. H. Lawrence
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

I wanted another chance to show off the some of the lovely pieces being offered by Mandala during this round of Collabor88.
