I believe that if you don't derive a deep sense of purpose from what you do, if you don't come radiantly alive several times a day, if you don't feel deeply grateful at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you, then you are wasting your life. And life is too short to waste. -Srikumar Rao

Jesse Quam - Mystery

My splendid Art, you inspire me to write.
I love the way you see and listen,
invading my mind day and through the night,
always dreaming about the created mysteries.

Let me compare you to a sanctuary?
You are more dizzy, fizzy and busy.
Snow chills the berries of January,
and wintertime has the blended dizzy.

How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love your ominous Earth, eyes and head.
Thinking of your fancy Eyes fills my days.
My love for you is the active wellhead.

Now I must away with a sublime heart,
remember my vast dreams whilst we're apart.

Time spent with cats is never wasted –Sigmund Freud

Jesse Quam - Elephant Love

Now the question is - are you ready, for the real revolution?
Which is the evolution of the mind?
If you seek then you shall find that we all come from the divine.
You dig what I'm saying?
Now if you take heed to the words of wisdom
that are written on the walls of life
then universally, we will stand and divided we will fall.
Because love conquers all, you understand what I'm saying?
This is a call to all you sleeping souls.
Wake up and take control of your own cipher
and be on the lookout for the spirit snipers
trying to steal your light; you know what I'm saying?
Look within side yourself, for peace
Give thanks, live life and release.
You dig me? You got me?
