Worrying is praying for something you don’t want.– Bhagavan Das (via nirvikalpa)
pathofdeparture asked: Why wouldn't I have that book?! I have the whole series! lol.
I just realized that I’ve never expressed my availability to questions from my followers. If you have anything you want to ask, go ahead. Hit me up, even if it’s anonymous.

YES! Number 2 for highest unemployment rate! →
I can’t wait to waste my money on a M.F.A. in Creative Writing. However, I must not be so optimistic yet. I might not be in the 5% who get accepted, so there’s still room for heartbreak. Ah, the cruel, cruel irony. Fight hard to get in, shell out cash to stay in and become extremely proficient at your craft, then be unemployed for the rest of your life. Somehow, this doesn’t...

The bolded ones are my must-reads. Books I own which I haven’t read/finished: The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan (partly read) The Glamour of Grammar by Roy Peter Clark The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays by Oscar Wilde (partly read) Journal of Henry David Thoreau (partly read) The Wilderness World of John Muir (partly read) Books I bought at Calvin: Extremely Loud...
One day, I’d like to take a trip to visit all the best bookstores in the world (okay, maybe just the U.S. and the UK because other countries’ books would be printed in non-English languages). The downside is that I’ll probably buy so many books I won’t have enough money to get home. So I’ll return via train hopping, another thing I really want to do someday. Thus...
A Poem-A-Day Celebration: Franz Wright's "Dead... →
celebratepoetry: Franz Wright’s most recent collection, Kindertotenwald, is book of prose poems that serve to remind us how tragic is the loss of childhood, not just when we first lose it but throughout our lives. Wright, now in his late fifties, has remained alert to the hauntings of youth, as well as to surreal… I think I rather like prose poetry.

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Makes me sick. →
What a father-son bonding activity. Also, dehumanizing women with barcode tattoos? That’s so awful I can’t even explain, much less figure out, how I feel about this. It’s despicable. Like seeing a real Van Gogh at a mini-mart for $2, and then watching some guy buy it, take it outside, and just pee all over it. Just wrong and sad and angering.
