A newfound guide to joy…
When I pronounce the word Future,
the first syllable already belongs to the past.
When I pronounce the word Silence,
I destroy it.
When I pronounce the word Nothing,
I make something no non-being can hold.
This beautiful poem by Wisława Szymborska, Polish Nobel Prize winner (translated by S. Baranczak & C. Cavanagh)
When people talk, listen completely. Don’t be thinking what you’re going to say. Most people never listen. Nor do they observe. You should be able to go into a room and when you come out, know everything that you saw there and not only that. If that room gave you any feeling you should know exactly what it was that gave you that feeling. Try that for practice.
– Ernest Hemingway

Asked my niece about her favorite band and she showed me Stray Kids. This video brings back memories from the good old middle/high school years. Thanks Tiff & Skz
