“at its best, life is completely unpredictable.” // c. walken

though not a boy, let alone a boy scout, i needn’t have checked in with them first to know that the first rule of living a life that doesn’t induce any more anxiety than it already does, would be to always ‘be prepared’.

i’m fully aware that admitting this may make me a total killjoy but, i detest surprises.

i don’t like not knowing what comes next, and i don’t care for putting a kink into my very stable and routine… routine. i always read TV spoilers, and those who know me well understand that they should never tease with the statement, “i know what i’m getting you for your birthday…!” because they’ll never hear the end of it.

and then, i compulsively check the weather. not because i’m worried, but because i’d prefer to know whether i can count on it being predictably unpredictable, and plan accordingly.*

“he who works with his hands is a laborer. he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. he who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.” // st. f. assisi

those that can make their hands do their minds’ bidding have forever impressed me.

that one would be able to daydream an idea and make it into something real with their very own hands seems plainly extraordinary to me; (this fact alone might make me seem overwhelmingly ordinary), but see, i’m the type that can conjure any bit of fancy in my head, but there’s no way i’m talking my hands into doing any bit of that work. they just don’t see fit to communicate – and all my snappy plans go awry. like two left feet never to dance a two-step, i’ve got a pair of hands that kick shins when i try to craft. so, i’ll leave it to those whose heart and hands are in the mix, and keep on daydreaming instead.

“love is the only gold.” // a., lord tennyson

though love is as hard to break into as bullion, procuring and holding on to the latter is somewhat simpler. and much like the fervor of the emotion, for years and years i hid from it. i didn’t believe it suited me, i thought it would peg me down, i thought it would give an impression of me that would have been plainly untrue. i didn’t believe it to be tough enough, that it was too easily malleable, and much too easily broken. but then i realized i was full of it.

both in love and in gold, you make it yours by bringing meaning to it and finding your own way around it. and both in love and gold – it can be unbreakable and delicate at the very same time.

“you must not ever stop being whimsical. and you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life.” // m. oliver

you wouldn’t know it – if you saw me skulking down the street a little bit like truffaut’s julie kohler – but i have a most fantastic sense of humour, a keen appreciation of silly, and a certain fondness for whimsy. it’s just that i don’t wear it out in the open, on my sleeve, per se. but, i can sense the shift as the days grow longer, and for about 90 seconds it’s sunny and warm – everyone is starting to let their freak flags fly, whether it be full on, or in small doses – you can’t keep the whimsy at bay.
