If I could have it back
all the time that we wasted
I’d only waste it again.
If I could have it back
you know I would love
to waste it again
waste it again and again and again.
I forgot to ask.
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Zubtsov, Russia (by Aleksandr Matveev)
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.

Dr. Howard Thurman

What makes you come alive? Tell us at stayherewithus!

Please stay here with us.

And since we all came from a woman

Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman

I wonder why we take from our women

Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?

I think it’s time to kill for our women

Time to heal our women, be real to our women

And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies

That will hate the ladies, that make the babies

And since a man can’t make one

He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one

So will the real men get up

I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up
