There are, it seems, two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say, ‘It is yet more difficult than you thought.’ This is the muse of form. It may be then that form serves us best when it works as an obstruction, to baffle us and deflect our intended course. It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.
Forget safety. 
Live where you fear to live.
 Destroy your reputation. 
Be notorious.
 I have tried prudent planning 
long enough.
 From now on, I’ll be mad.

How I’ll be celebrating my 32nd birthday:

…somewhat grudgingly and with hot dogs.

and hopefully a silly hat.

Getting high is misunderstood. For me it was forced contemplation on the riddles of our world. A tweaking of the mind to break patterned and limited thinking. It reveals what we take for granted. It is a philosophical tool. It brings expansion in our relationships with others through shared laughter and honest dialogue. It makes us ‘real’ for just a moment, to temporarily display the beauty of a calm and loving state. Because of your experiences, you take them with you into your sober state and slowly integrate each realization you discover and eventually, do away with it and just be. And lastly, the side-effect of impaired memory is actually a benefit because it helps you forget about the dreadful past and allows you to sharpen your views onto the present.
