The ethereal, part trois.

If you missed the first two, go here and here first.  
 Have a lovely day, and remember to keep your castles in the sky, truths, and daydreams alive. ;)

"Observe the wonders are the occur around you.
Don't claim them.  Feel the artistry and 
be silent."

"If I never see you again
I will always carry you
on my fingertips
and at brain edges
and in centers
of what I am
of what remains."
-Charles Bulowski

"Courage lies not in the heat of pursuit. 
 But in the moments spent
silent.  Deep in wait."
-Kate Richey

"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world 
in itself."
-Henry Miller

"And we danced too wild,
 and we sang too long,
 and we hugged too hard, 
and we kissed too sweet,
 and threw our heads and howled just as loud
 as we wanted to howl, 
because by now we were all old enough
 to know that what looks like crazy on an ordinary day, 
looks a lot like love if you catch it in the moonlight."
-Pearl Cleag 

"Everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats that sail
toward those little isles of yours
that wait for me."
-Pablo Neruda

"What should I do about the wild and the tame?  
The wild heart that wants to be free,
and the tame heart that wants to come home.  
I want to be held. 
 I don't want you to come too close.  
I want you to scoop me up and 
bring me home at night. 
 I don't want to tell you where I am. 
 I want to keep a place among the rocks 
where no one can find me. 
 I want to be with you."
-Jeanette Winterson

"But I don't want comfort.  
I want God, I want poetry,
I want real danger. 
 I want freedom. 
 I want sin."
-Aldous Huxley

"It has shown me that everything is illuminated
 in the light of the past.
It is always along the side of us....
on the inside, looking out."
-Jonathan Safran Foer

"If I see the outer world differently from how others
see it, it's because I inadvertently incorporate,
into what I see, the things from my dreams
that have stuck to my ears and eyes."
-Fernando Pessoa

"Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement
 of your aloneness to learn that anything or anyone 
that does not bring you alive is too small for you."
-David Whytel

"Everyone edits themselves here, and it makes me wonder if 
you're actually connected to real people, or just the people 
they all wish they were."
"There is something about words.  In expert hands, manipulated 
deftly,they take you prisoner.  Wind themselves around your limbs
like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move,
they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts.
Inside you they work their magic.
-Diane Setterfield

"The appearance of things change according to the emotions,
and thus we see magic and beauty in them,
while the magic and beauty is really
in ourselves."
-Kahil Gibran
"If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.... there 
is something you must always remember.  You are braver
than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter
than you think.  But the most important thing is,
even if we're apart... I'll always
be with you."
-A.A. Milne


  1. I love this. Thank you, it's beautiful.

  2. I just read all three of these "The Ethereal" parts, and I just wanted to say thank you for putting these words and images together.

    Some of these quotes, fit what I always feel but have never been able to say so perfectly, I almost think it is fate that I stumbled across this.

  3. The above (longer) comment was mine, before I decided to join blogspot just so I could follow this blog. :)

  4. Thank you, you just made my day! I'll keep doing this Ethereal theme. :)
