At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.

Have your own take on life…

Young and Beautiful

“YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL”-LANA DEL REY

I’ve seen the world
Done it all, had my cake now

Diamonds, brilliant, and Bel-Air now
Hot summer nights mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, the city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful


I’ve seen the world, lit it up as my stage now
Channeling angels in, the new age now
Hot summer days, rock and roll
The way you’d play for me at your show
And all the ways I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

Dear lord when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man

When he comes tell me that you’ll let him in
Father tell me if you can


Oh that grace, oh that body
Oh that face makes me wanna party

He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

It’s always darkest before the dawn

It’s always darkest before the dawn

So that is the meaning of discipline, I thought, sacrifice… yes, and blindness; he doesn’t see me. He doesn’t even see me. Am I about to strangle him? I do not know. He cannot possibly. I still do not know. See! Discipline is sacrifice. Yes, and blindness. Yes.

- Ralph Elison, Invisible Man (via bookmania)

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” ― Robert Fulghum,

So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!
