"In the typhoon of my life I sometimes forget this vast ocean of time and space. I get caught up, running, head down, busy, all the time. I start to think my shit is so important. And then I end up here and remember this vast ocean - of which I am one drop, and remember also that this ocean is but the smallest drop in the universe, which is a tiny speck in the infinite. And then my shit doesn’t seem quite as important. Just this moment. Without the stories. I too will be washed away and brought back ashore countless times in this ocean of the infinite." — Aaron Huey

And I know you won’t let me down
'cause I'm already standing on the ground
i’m feeling hot to the touch
but something keeps me really quiet
i’m alive, i’m a lush
