“Everyone’s creative acts, whatever they may be, make constructive form out of the apparent formlessness of our lives.”
(via thisproximity)"Write every day, line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure. As you follow the quest for stories told with meaning and beauty, study thoughtfully but write boldly. Then, like the hero of the fable, your dance will dazzle the world."(via ilivetowriteandinspire)
If I believe in anything, it is in the dark night of the soul. Awe is my religion, and mystery is its church.
We do one thing or another; we stay the same, or we change.
You have changed.
Let me ask you this.
Do you also think that beauty exists for some fabulous reason?
And if you have not been enchanted by this adventure -
Your life -
What would do for you?
