" Never let the future disturb you.

You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.” — Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

"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

If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up.

― Richard Avedon

(AVEDON, YOU JUST HAD TO HIT ME IN THE HEART.)


Goodbye to sleep,
I think this staying up is exactly what I need.

I can’t shake this little feeling.
I’ll never get anything right.

Oh no
29 different attributes
and only 7 that you like, uh oh
20 ways to see the world, oh oh
or 20 ways to start a fight

———

men don’t notice what they got
women think of that a lot

I get this feeling I may know you as a lover and a friend.
But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear,
Tells me I may never see you again.

'cause I get a peaceful easy feeling
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

i need to know is this real love, or is it just madness keeping us afloat

We learn when we’re in our discomfort zone. When you’re struggling, that’s when you’re getting smarter. The more time you spend there, the faster you learn. It’s better to spend a very, very high quality ten minutes, or even ten seconds, than it is to spend a mediocre hour. You want to practice where you are on the edge of your ability, reaching over and over again, making mistakes, failing, realizing those mistakes and reaching again.
