"Theres the optimistic side of me, too, which believes that we live in an incredible time and that if we all came togther on the important issues and stand up for our rights, as Bob Marley said, we could all accomplish a lot. In my mind, I have all these Utopias and fantasies, but I believe they really can work , I really do." - River <3

when my life is over, and my time has run out my friends and my lovers, i will leave theres no doubt but one things for certain, when it comes my time i’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
“Grace is what matters. In anything. Especially life, especially growth, tragedy, pain, love, death. About people, that’s what matters. That’s a quality I admire very greatly. It keeps you from reaching for the gun too quickly; it keeps you from destroying things too foolishly; it sort of keeps you alive and keeps you open for more understanding.”
the first thing i did when i went to memphis was i went to the river so i could swim in it. it’s weird knowing it’s where you took your last breath. i really do just imagine you laying on your back singing wishing that moment could last forever. and it is still lasting.you have eternal life now, what you always wanted.
oh my love and the rain is falling and i believe. my time has come, it reminds me of the pain. i might leave, leave behind wait in the fire and i feel them drown my name so easy to know and forget with this kiss i’m not afraid to go but it goes so slow
“I believe we write our own stories and each time we think we know the end, we don’t. Perhaps luck exists somewhere between the world of planning, of chance and in the peace that comes from knowing that you just can’t know it all. Life’s funny that way… once you let go of the wheel, you might end up right where you belong.”
