Wherever you are, you are one with the clouds and one with the sun and the stars you see. You are one with everything. That is more true than I can say, and more true than you can hear.
Shunryu Suzuki (via thecalminside)

Helene Cixous, The Book of Promethea (via dieworten)
Valley of the Dolls (1967)
He is exactly the poem I wanted to write.
Mary Oliver, excerpt from “White Heron Rises Over Blackwater” (via v-acantly)
