“White Camellia”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain.

“The Laughing Heart” by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

Music: Should Have Known Better

This song is by an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Sufjan Stevens. His debut album A Sun Came” was released in 2000. His seventh studio album “Carrie & Lowell” was released in 2015. Original songs of Stevens were featured in the movie Call Me by Your Name (2017).

I loved this song since I heard it for the first time.
