Don’t lie to yourself

April 23, 2017

Eduardo Mata Icaza

― Fyodor Dostoyevsky [Artwork by Eduardo Mata Icaza]

I have always loved the gaps

April 9, 2017

Unknown author

"I have always loved the gaps, the spaces between things, as much as the things. I love staring, pondering, mulling, puttering. I love the times when someone or something is late—there’s that rich possibility of noticing more, in the meantime… Poetry calls us to pause. There is so much we overlook, while the abundance around us continues to shimmer, on its own."
― Naomi Shihab Nye [Artwork by Unknown author]

You just do it

April 8, 2017

Gustavo Cisneros

"You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way."
― Elizabeth Taylor [Artwork by Gustavo Cisneros]
