"To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it."

Osho (via thatkindofwoman)

"When I face the desolate impossibility of writing five hundred pages, a sick sense of failure falls on me, and I know I can never do it. Then gradually, I write one page and then another. One day’s work is all I can permit myself to contemplate."

John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

"Everyone has three lives: a public life, a private life, and a secret life."

EPIC MOOD BOOST.

"Sleep is good, he said, and books are better."

"Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere."

Overheard in University Parks

  • Overheard in the park...
  • 5-year old girl: Mummy, I want to look like Barbie.
  • Her twin brother: Don't be ridiculous, her legs look like carrot sticks.
  • The girl: But she's so pretty.
  • The boy: Carrot sticks are only good with cheese. And anyway, your legs would be more like potato sticks 'cuz they're white, not orange. And potato sticks are the same thing as chips. And chips taste even better than carrots, especially with cheese.

Medieval Dances - The Egg Dance
The Egg dance was one of the earliest Saxon Medieval dances and, like the Carole, was performed during a period of festivity namely the Easter-tide festivities. The  egg dance was derived from a traditional Easter game, in the egg dance eggs were laid on the ground or floor and the goal was to dance among them damaging as few eggs as possible.

"Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."
