The Others

People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel- Irwin Federman

Thousands of geniuses live and die undiscovered - either by themselves or by others- Mark Twain

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others- Buddha

Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations- Leo Buscaglia

Let every man judge according to his own standards, by what he has himself read, not by what others tell him- Albert Einstein

He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened- Lao Tzu

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion- Dalai Lama

If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome- Michael Jordan

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others- Nelson Mandela

Those whom we can love, we can hate; to others we are indifferent- Henry David Thoreau

Excellence can be obtained if you: more than others think is wise;

...risk more than others think is safe;

...dream more than others think is practical;

...expect more than others think is possible.


People used to stand for something.

Hey yall!!! I just got back from Bonnaroo this week- it was amazing as always. Saw some old favorites, new favorites, met some sweet peeps and turned a nice english muffin golden brown in the hot hot tennessee heat. Just layin around this morning before work catching up on blogs and stumbled upon a link to this fabulous jewelry shop on Etsy- Elephantine. I ordered this beautiful necklace!! Its called "lightness". I cant wait til it comes.

Go to and you can get free streaming Bonnaroo tunes!! Im listening to Tinarawen right now- a band of musicians from the Sahara Desert in Mali. I think I was Ingrid Michaelson-ing under a tree during their show, but I'm enjoying it now nonetheless.

Beneath the Balcony

Let's go out and dance, darling
our last of days
and grace the game with a blindfold on
the cheaters came to play
and outside the soft-handed boys
screaming cars and all their speed
music, meth, a hero beggin change
his sword across his knees

and how he prays to find a man to blame
for every sleepless night he spends
and for every well that he warned me of
but wound up falling in
and then for the kids beneath the balcony
who disregard the rain
to make sure the king won't grant
the dead man one more day

let's go out and see darling
what shines tonight
and temper your dream about the dying horse
with traffic, noise, and light
and somewhere the soft-handed boys,
bleeding hearts, and worker bees
give to the holy mother begging change
Christ across her knees

and oh how she prays to find a man to blame
for every loveless night she waits
and for every gun that she frowned upon
but still some fucker made
and then for the kid beneath the balcony
behind the garbage can
who waits for the king to come
and hold his sweating hand

Iron and Wine
The Sea and the Rhythm
