+ Lock yourself away, so that you never see the light of day or the dark of night.
+ Avoid contact with other humans at all cost. You never know what sort of germs they might have.
+ Don't exercise too much because you'll mess up your joints.
+ Don't ever fall in love, because it will break your heart.
+ Try not to be afraid of anything, because that causes stress.
+ On second thought, be afraid of everything, something might be a trap.
+ Make sure your words are perfect, that you never take something back
+ Promise to be careful, so that you never have to lack.
+ And lastly, never take chances to do the things you love, because you might mess up and that would be too bad.
You know what, scratch all of that, who cares about being comfortable? I want to love deeply, and hurt badly. I want to laugh late at night while the world sleeps soundly. I want to feel the drastic rainbow of emotions us humans have. I want to climb a mountain and feel my lungs scream but keep going, because it hurts. I want skinned knees that prove where I've been and that I don't know where I'm going next. I want my heart to break and then for it to heal. I want to trip on words and stories until I get them right. Because I can feel and that means I'm alive. There's a heart in my chest, beating a rhythm of song, what can I do but dance along?
How to waste your life: don't live it.

Breathes words, music and art. Also air. Because lets be realistic. I blog, take pictures, write a few things, say many words and think even more. Come say hello, why don't you?
