“The face of love is variable. I am able to love without demanding that my relationships assume the structures and forms I might choose for them. My love is fluid, flexible, committed, creative. My love allows people and events to unfold as they need. My love is not controlling. It does not dictate or demand. My love allows those I love the freedom to assume the forms most true to them. I release all those I love from my preconceptions of their path. I allow them the dignity of self-definition while I offer them a constant love that is every variable in shape.”
– ~ Julia Cameron
“I’m more interested in the woman I want to be, as opposed to the things I want. By the time I’m her, I’ll already have everything she wants.”
Dau Voire (via habitualbliss)
here’s something to ponder on
The most beautiful Monday is the Monday there are no classes
The most beautiful Monday
is that Monday the roads aren’t jammed like hell,
When no vehicle horns cut into the air,
When the sky is louder than the engine sounds.
This part of Manila becomes a real place.
With the buildings and streets getting their chance
to be what they are. Not something to rush in
but somewhere to be in.
Every corner, every block sings of its own being.
Of subtle harmony.
As if finally their molecules are breathing
not drowned out by those human beings.
Perhaps even places can flourish in solitude,
even shadows have light and color
even those left on their own dance in music
only silence can give
Even peace is a riot.

Should be asleep by now. Instead I’m outside a mall abusing their Wi-Fi… thinking how MRT will kill me tomorrow and why the mind hides too many things from us… (living in your head can only take u so far— which is not so far.)
