Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It...– Neil Gaiman (Ha. A chink in my armor. A roadblock. A detour. A moment of cynicism for a romanticized fallacy of love. A railing against the impractical silliness of infatuation. Because I refuse to be fake. And no one can be positive all of the time…) don’t worry, regularly scheduled...
“I had some whiskey and some smokes and time to think it all out, It made sense this whole heading south; Sometimes its best to slow your pace when you can’t control it.

This week's note from the universe...
The thing about making it big, and doing it fast, Erin, is that invariably the first steps will be small and slow. Which oddly, for many, is the same reason they don’t take them. You know better, huh, Erin? Huh, huh, huh? -the universe

Whhhhhhhhhhh-a-a-a-a-a-, whooo-o-o-oossh - The Universe” Ah yes. Never settling. I gave my little brother an impassioned monologue - I mean motivational speech - about this on...
