Song

Standard

I am what they did not tell me and I knew.
Oh, I wanted everything to be mine!
I am everything I have already lost.
But everything’s elusive like the wind and the river,
like the golden summer flowers
that die in your hands.
I am everything, but nothing, nothing is mine,
not the pain, nor the joy, nor the terror,
not even the words of my song.

~ Silvina Ocampo

A whole lot of Nothing

Standard

“It could be argued that those who sit quietly and do nothing are making one of the best possible contributions to a world in turmoil.” ~ Alan Watts

nothing

Somedays no matter what you do nothing happens, you can’t stop it, it’s just the way life is. It happens over and over again, until one day you realise, Nothing Matters; and it’s probably the only thing that does.
