Favorite Quote:
"Everything had changed suddenly--the tone, the moral climate; you didn't know what to think, whom to listen to. As if all your life you had been led by the hand like a small child and suddenly you were on your own, you had to learn to walk by yourself. There was no one around, neither family nor people whose judgment you respected. At such a time you felt the need of committing yourself to something absolute--life or truth or beauty--of being ruled by it in place of the man-made rules that had been discarded. You needed to surrender to some such ultimate purpose more fully, more unreservedly than you had ever done in the old familiar, peaceful days, in the old life that was now abolished and gone for good."

I miss the music from down below
Laying in a dark room it made me feel less alone
You understood me the best any stranger could
I saw the light in you that you tucked deep inside
The monsters kept you at bay
The monster left you in the dark on the brightest day
It’s not your fault
And I tell myself again and again it wasn’t mine
They didn’t teach us how to love
They didn’t teach us how to shine
But you fought through it all
A tough deed with all that luggage on your back
Your heart was broken, but you just wanted it put back
Heart ache is blinding and loneliness prison bars
Sometimes all we’ve got doesn’t guarantee freedom
What you had wasn’t as strong as the demons
Who countered all your good
You wanted love and companionship
But the banished you to the dark
And they took it all away
They made you push me away
I miss your music
I miss your sun
But maybe the blackest night isn’t the end at all
Maybe we’ve just mistaken it for dark rain clouds that will pass
