“…do you sometimes long to escape?”
— Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil
“I want to go travel, to breathe in the sun and the air and the thousands of new scents a new environment offers.
I want to go places where I can feel the history of mankind in its art and its old buildings, and visit places that have been able to withstand the industrial onslaught of the human race, where people still cultivate the land instead of being ruled by machines.
And I want to meet lots of cool people along the way who have the same feeling for nature, for beauty, for kindness and for peace.”
— Sereno Sky, the “Lonely Traveller” novels
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn
Dahlia by Alan Shapiro
“To become lighter, to create happier events in your life, it is important to use higher words and thoughts when you speak to yourself or others.
Your thoughts create reality; they go out into the world and affect other people.
As you begin thinking purer, kinder, and move loving thoughts, you will begin to change the magnetism of your body and resonate with the higher planes of the universe.”
— Sanaya Roman
