Books Reading

We sleep to time’s hurdy-gurdy; we wake, if ever we wake, to the silence of God. And then, when we wake to the deep shores of time uncreated, then when the dazzling dark breaks over the far slopes of time, then it’s time to toss things, like our reason, and our will; then it’s time to break our necks for home.
There are no events but thoughts and the heart’s hard turning, the heart’s slow learning where to love and whom. The rest is merely gossip, and tales for other times. ~Annie Dillard

‘I prefer the saddle to the streetcar and star-sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail, leading to the unknown, to any paved highway, and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by cities. Do you blame me for staying here, where i feel that i belong and am one with the world around me? It is true that i miss intelligent companionship, but there are so few with whom i can share the things that mean so much to me that i have learned to contain myself. It is enough that i am surrounded by beauty.’ Everett Ruess

“The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.”
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden, or Life in the Woods.

‘For children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.’ G.K. Chesterton

Neil Gaiman

Standard
The Sandman - Death

‘Death’ , The Sandman Comics, Neil Gaiman

First book I read by Neil Gaiman was American Gods. I read over 15 books by him since then, and counting!

Those who have a penchant for fantasy will hopefully find a new longing for this unique writer, and storyteller.

Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer

Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer Gaiman

We’re not a perfect couple. We’re just a couple. We love each other and we get on each others’ nerves. She grits her teeth when she hears me tell the same story for the dozenth time. I grit my teeth when she tells me it’s time to go jogging (but mostly I go with her anyway). She loves crowds and people, I like solitude and the countryside. She’ll go through hell to avoid the cold. I quite like it.

But she makes me laugh and I’m ridiculously happy when I’m with her. Unless we’re having an argument. We have great and wonderful arguments.

I don’t think you get perfect couples. At best you get two people building something, and working at it, and loving each other, and doing their best to communicate.

Neil Gaiman on his relationship with Amanda, defying and denying the “perfect couple” label.

Neil Gaiman Quote

Jason French & Desert Flower debating on speaking one's heart. </p><p>Jason French said,<br />'Sometimes you have to set off the bomb early so it won't keep building into something more devastating later. If we all lived in a perfect world things like love would be easy to come by but since we don't we have to let nature take its course for better or worse. All we can do is have love and compassion and show others by example and hope that they follow in that same path. I am a man of faith, but I also follow the chaos theory and what's going to happen will, no matter what we think.'527756_10152158984040045_1717915900_n
