“Whatever may be the tensions and the stresses of a particular day, there is always lurking close at hand the trailing beauty of forgotten joy or unremembered peace.”

Howard Thurman, Meditations of the Heart

You know how hard it is for me
To shake the disease…

"Only happy people have nightmares, from overeating. For those who live a nightmare reality, sleep is a black hole, lost in time, like death."

I Will See You In Far Off Places (live) by Morrissey

Nobody knows what human life is.
Why we come, why we go.
So why then do I know
I will see you,
I will see you in far off places?

The heart knows why I grieve
And yes one day I will close my eyes forever
But I will see you
I will see you in far off places.

It’s so easy for us to sit together
But it’s so hard for our hearts to combine
And why?
And why?
Why? Why? Why? Why?

Destiny for some is to save lives
But destiny for some is to end lives…

Here is the house
Where it all happens
Those tender moments
Under this roof…

When you’re born a lover You’re born to suffer Like all soul sisters And soul brothers...

When you’re born a lover
You’re born to suffer
Like all soul sisters
And soul brothers...

"Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?"
John Keats, Letters of John Keats

If you want control without any pain
How long will you suffer?
How long will you reign?

Angst in My Pants by Sparks

I hope it doesn’t show
It’ll go ‘way
It’s just a passing phase
It’ll go ‘way

You can dress nautical
Learn to tie knots
Take lots of Dramamine
Out on your yacht
But when you’re all alone
And nothing bites
You’ll wish you stayed at home
With someone nice
But when you think you made it disappear
It comes again, “Hello, I’m here”, and
I’ve got angst in my pants

You can be smart as hell
Know how to add
Know how to figure things
On yellow pads
Answer so no one knows
What you just said
But when you’re all alone
You and your head
What’s the computer say, it’s mumbling now
It says “hey Joe”
It’s spelled it out and
“You’ve got angst in your pants”
“You’ve got angst in your pants”

But when you think you’ve made it disappear
You’re sure you made it disappear
And you’ve still got angst in your pants

I hope it doesn’t show
It’ll go ‘way
It’s just a passing phase
It’ll go ‘way
I hope it doesn’t show
It’ll go ‘way
Give it a hundred years
It won’t go ‘way
And I’ve got angst in my pants
I’ve got angst in my pants

If I only knew the answer Or I thought we had a chance Or I could stop this I would stop this thing from spreading like a cancer…

If I only knew the answer
Or I thought we had a chance
Or I could stop this
I would stop this thing from spreading like a cancer…
