THE GEM 13 NOV 217 : “AT SOME POINT IN LIFE THE WORLD’S BEAUTY BECOMES ENOUGH. YOU DON’T NEED TO PHOTOGRAPH, PAINT OR EVEN REMEMBER IT. IT IS ENOUGH. NO RECORD OF IT NEEDS TO BE KEPT AND YOU DON’T NEED SOMEONE TO SHARE IT WITH OR TELL IT TO. WHEN THAT HAPPENS — THAT LETTING GO — YOU LET GO BECAUSE YOU CAN.” ― TONI MORRISON, TAR BABY

“You know how a star is supposed to twinkle? We say twinkle because that is how it looks, but when a star feels itself, it’s not a twinkle, it’s more like a throb. Star throbs. Over and over and over. Like this. Stars just throb and throb and throb and sometimes, when they can’t throb anymore, when they can’t hold it anymore, they fall out of the sky.”

THE GEM 7 NOV 2017 : BAD FRIENDS WILL PREVENT YOU FROM HAVING GOOD FRIENDS.

Gabon proverb

“ That’s the pathetic thing about high school. Everyone tries so hard to be something they aren’t. It’s gotten so I don’t know who I am, so how can I even try to be who I am, much less who I’m not?
My problem is that I don’t even fit in with the misfits.
I don’t fit anywhere.”

― Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don’t Die

THE GEM 5 NOVEMBER 2017 : LUKEWARM ACCEPTANCE IS MORE BEWILDERING THAN OUTRIGHT REJECTION.

“You must want to enough. Enough to take all the rejections, enough to pay the price of disappointment and discouragement while you are learning. Like any other artist, you are learning your craft — then you can add all the genius you like.”

― Phyllis A. Whitney
