"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

i need to be strong even when i feel weak
push forward even when i think i can't
i need to keep going though confusion clouds my eyes
need to stop thinking and dive in for the ride

that song i always think of in times like this is repeating through my head
but its hard, i want to cry out
its hard to follow your guidance
and i feel sad

and i want to make an artwork about it. my sadness. and i would name it self-titled and it would be an outline of a word. with wonderful, flowery tendrils inside, competing with each other to stand out the most.

now, i think of another song
"if i traded it all
if i gave it all away
for one thing
wouldn't that be something?
if i sorted it out
if i knew all about
this one thing
would't that be something?"
