For a moment everything was clear, and when that happens you see that the world is barely there at all. Don’t we all secretly know this? It’s a perfectly balanced mechanism of shouts and echoes pretending to be wheels and cogs, a dreamclock chiming beneath a mystery-glass we call life. Behind it? Below it and around it? Chaos, storms. Men with hammers, men with knives, men with guns. Women who twist what they cannot dominate and belittle what they cannot understand. A universe of horror and loss surrounding a single lighted stage where mortals dance in defiance of the dark. — Stephen King “11/22/63.”

I once dropped a pen

standthoughtingunder:

And thought it was the foreshadowing of my death,

The reality is, being born was the foreshadowing of my death.

Let the pens drop, people die. I’m alive.

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral
begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.

Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.

Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

— Martln Luther King, Jr.

Named my horse Sir Hoofington.

No regrets.

I loved you head over handles
like my first bicycle accident—
before the mouthful of gravel and blood,
I swore we were flying.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is from Iraq. It is currently in the British museum, you know, the little island thousands of miles away from Iraq. This is a prime example of an imperialist nation stealing ornaments because their pathetic little history cannot fill a museum, so they have to pillage and loot to fill it up.
I have been to the “British” museum, there is absolutely nothing British about it. Just a building filled with artefacts stolen from Africa and from the East.

The British Museum is full of stolen artifacts, yes. But in this case, do you really think Iraq’s museums are safer and more impervious to theft?
