I was meant to be this person. I was meant to write it all down and create something from it, and deliver it to the world. This is how it has to be—I am a vessel for my love and my insanity, there is no other choice. Listening to “Crazy” and imagining naive girls and boys on barstools and in grocery outlets the world over, nodding their heads and singing along without any regard or understanding for their own ignorance, their own failed realization—namely, that there is no such thing as control. We have no control over what ‘happens’ to us, we are only capable of tempering our reactions to those ‘happenings’. That is the most liberating and empowering realization of all—that to have faith is to lose all expectation. Faith is the acceptance of the unknown, an unquestioning openness to or trust of it. That the world happens to you in the same way that you happen to it—you are the universe and all that you perceive in it, you are the experience and the experience is you! Allow it to happen, now (the present). Let it wash over you and appreciate every molecule and every instance of life for what it is in this precise moment. Because there is no rehearsal for life, there is no perfecting it. If one could ‘practice’ at life, to create the ‘best’ possible outcome, it might as well never have occurred at all.

I thought she was cosplaying as a book but diction-fairy is a million times better :D
I wonder what the folklore would be behind her.
Would she give good books to kids in exchange for bad books that she turns back into trees?
That’d be killer! :D
