" known, but unwritten chapters "

keep kind. keep striving and work hard at your craft. it will pay off.

keep generous, keep open. keep on top of your game, whatever the rules, bend and break them; excel at your flavor of greatness, and apologize whenever absolutely necessary. be humble, and be proud of your accomplishments.

keep brave and adventurous.

keep promises, keep a planner, keep and finish to-do lists. make lots of plans with lots of varied people and really make a focused effort to respect the time you spend together. these are your compatriots, collaborators, and time is a precious commodity, so treat it with respect.

keep a love in your heart, a strength of will in your bones, and pens & paper in your bag.

it's going to be an interesting experience, this life in this time, your time...and there's so much to do.

tonight's homework:

thank someone with a true thanks. they deserve it, and you are lucky to know them aren't you?

(yes you are.)

" break down to build up "

there's so much, there's so much. how to make it all organized and manageable, and is that even the point? can we exist amidst the tiny chaos of everyday?

films, pop culture, sickness, food trends, local news, international news, friends, family, cleanliness, arts & mixed media, attending musical events, learning how to dance, people-watching, karaoke, bike rides, dating, clothing choices, toothpaste with or without tartar control, airplane travel versus train travel, it's so much, and endless.

it's enough to know it all exists, and to recognize that it all exists, there is a great relief off the shoulders. there is no rush to have to understand it all. it's going to be there if you want it to or not. stop writing, shower, go to sleep.wake up tomorrow and give it your best go of it.

tonight's homework:

it's alright to be overwhelmed. we're basically on the craziest spaceship ever right now. take a rest, regroup, and i'll see you tomorrow.
