The aim of life is to live,
and to live means to be aware
joyously, drunkenly, serenely,
divinely aware.
In this state of god-like awareness
one sings; in this realm the world
exists as poem.

Henry Miller

Tropic of Capricorn (1939)

"I think about all the hate in the world and the people who are so full of rage." - Sarah Ryhanen

...and under that hate, fear and ignorance. Failure to pay attention - not wanting to pay attention. Sadness.
