“Quiet minds can’t be perplexed or frightened,
but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace,
like a clock during a thunderstorm.”

~Robert Louis Stevenson

Love(Life)

July 15, 2014

She was getting a little frustrated, almost angry, asking me again why I could get so sad sometimes.

“I get so happy sometimes, too,” I said.

“I know,” she said, “but why not stay that way?  Why not be happy all the time, or almost all the time?”

“Because I’m in love with life.”

Her eyes lit up.  She thought she had won the argument.  She thought there was an argument.  “Then as long as you’re alive, you should be happy.”

I shook my head.  “I don’t think love works that way.”

Say it anyway

I want you to know that you may have once said something very kind to me, or that you may yet someday say something like that, a word or thought that glows as it passes through the air to me, something simple like “Dad always said you were so talented,” or “Your smile makes my brain stop working,” and maybe I will have thanked you, or not, and maybe I will have smiled or otherwise responded in an appropriate way to let you know that I appreciate not just that you felt that way, or that he felt that way, but that you cared enough to share it with me, were brave enough to share it with me, or maybe I will not have responded much at all, but I want you to know that, later, months or years later perhaps, I will stop suddenly and have to sit down in my living room, because the mysterious circuitry of my mind will have recalled to me those words you shared and the feelings behind them, and I will hear them as clearly as if you were sitting here with me, and I will cry, I will have to wipe the tears from my eyes in order to make room for more, because the joy in my heart will not be able to burst out in any other way.

                   Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the
                   theatre business.  The natural condition is
                   one of insurmountable obstacles on the road
                   to imminent disaster.

				FENNYMAN
                   So what do we do?

                                HENSLOWE
                   Nothing.  Strangely enough, it all turns
                   out well.

                                FENNYMAN
                   How?

                                HENSLOWE
                   I don't know.  It's a mystery.

The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical…. They to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, are as good as dead.

Philosophy is really homesickness; the wish to be everywhere at home.
