Me miserable! which way shall I fly
Infinite wrauth and infinite despair?
Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell;
And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide,
To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heaven.
“But especially he loved to run in the dim twilight of the summer midnights, listening to the subdued and sleepy murmurs of the forest, reading signs and sounds as man may read a book, and seeking for the mysterious something that called—called, waking or sleeping, at all times, for him to come.”—Call of the Wild - Jack London (via irrationalityworks)
My No Shave November beard is gone because I am afraid of my grandma being disappointed that I am not clean shaven at Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow. The first thing that happened when I came home from break was my Dad looking at me asking me what is on my face, and then my Mom telling me to shave it.
One day I will have a beard for more than a month, and on that day I will be a rebel without a cause, and it is going to be so rad, and I’m going to eat cake, and throw paper on the floor, and do even more rebel stuff.
It seems appropriate that Jim Henson’s legendary creation, the Muppets, got their start on children’s programming and public television because they have a lot to teach the world. Not only did they spearhead the low-rent show Sam and Friends on WRC-TV in Washington DC, they were also instrumental in making Sesame Street a primary education powerhouse.
But even when the Muppets branched out from their roots to land in their variety show and later major motion pictures, they still had a lot to teach us. Like many folks out there, I grew up with the Muppets, and these are some of the most important lessons I have taken away over the years.
