Live with intention. Walk to the edge.
Listen hard. Practice wellness.
Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret.
Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends.
Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.
- Mary Ann Hershey -
it's just after four am in the morning here. and i'm still awake. wide awake. i'll be leaving for hamburg in a few hours and hopefully taking big and small steps in new projects and ideas.
so as i'm preparing the paperwork i need to take with me, i'm reading over some of my favourites quotes. desperately trying to find files and notes and pieces of paper here and there, where other favourite quotes have always been written down. and some of these quotes, i had forgotten. or they simply slipped to little corners of my mind and yet, with the simply and powerful words they are, they can't be forgotten. maybe that's what this project is all about. creating a way to make these words apparent again. sharing them to be remembered, to accompany along the way and not to be simply kept on little slips and pieces of paper that gets lost in the piles and accumulations of the world.
another reminder to the self however, that i shouldn't be writing philosophical thoughts in the wee hours of the morning?
but i'm so looking forward to hamburg. have only been there once before and many too many years ago. these days, as much as so many things are alive in me. i'm also embracing the chance to distance myself. a small escape. new faces and new places. and a bit of work. and a bit of play.
yes, there definitely most be more play in life.
how could i forget?
