and where she lay, a flower grows
when I was little, I wore a blanket on my head to pretend I had long hair. now I just want to be a mermaid.
It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling. Aldous Huxley, Words I Needed To Tell Myself (via acupofkeen)
