go forth, thou, and blossom

We’re all gonna die one day, and it might be tomorrow, and it might be when you’re a hundred and five. But, I would say, if you’re not living the life, right now, that you are psyched to wake up and live, — change it as soon as possible. Just, you know? — if that means quitting your job, or if it means tweaking some things, getting rid of some negativity in your life, — just go for it. And it might be hard at first, but in the end, do you want to live the best story that you thought you ever could? or do you want to, you know? wake up when you’re 90, and say, like, “Shit, I really shoulda done some different things”? Cuz, you know? Put it all out there and live the dream. So, that’s what I would say to do.

~Erik Gordon

There is your car and the open road, the fabled lure of random adventure. You stand at the verge, and you could become anything. Your future shifts and warps with your smallest step, your shitty little whims. The (wo)man you will become is at your mercy.

~Dan Chaon (b.1964)
