Crying is all right in its way while it lasts….

“Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before–more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.”
― Charles Dickens

The arrow of time obscures memory of both past and future circumstance with innumerable fallacies, the least trivial of which is perception.

“Darker and darker, he said; farther and farther yet. Death takes the good, the beautiful, and the young – and spares me. The Pestilence that wastes, the Arrow that strikes, the Sea that drowns, the Grave the closes over Love and Hope, are steps of my journey, and take me nearer and nearer to the End.”
– Wilkie Collins

What in the World is a Hangover Cure?

 

“If we only see things through the cold-eyed lens of factuality and don’t listen to the yearning and screaming of unexpressed feelings, life may remain bleak in a mire of clinical hollowness, sodden in apathy and indifference. ” 
– Erik Pevernagie

…You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together…

 

Food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go. – Anthony Bourdain
This is a bit of a different type of post from me. Anthony Bourdain passed away on June 8, 2018. He was one of my favorite chefs to follow and to watch. With the increase of celebrities/people in the media taking their lives over the past few years; it goes to show that on the outside a person can appear to have everything but you don’t know about the personal struggles that they may be going through. I myself have these types of struggles, I have for many years.
If you or someone that you know need help, please reach out.

Were not the gods forms created like me and you, mortal, transient?

“When someone is searching then it might easily happen that the only thing his eyes still see is that what he searches for, that he is unable to find anything, to let anything enter his mind, because he always thinks of nothing but the object of his search. Searching means: having a goal. Finding means: being free, being open, having no goal.”
Hermann Hesse

We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free.

 

“The strangest part about being famous is you don’t get to give first impressions anymore. Everyone already has an impression of you before you meet them.” – Kristen Stewart

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. – George Eliot
