king solomon's mines, exit seventy-five--
i'm still alive
i'm still alive
-tori amos.

so, things in my life are both crazy wonderful and miserable.

I guess it is always such. With me, at least. But sometimes the "intense" thing bogs me down and I wish I could never leave the house--that my time would just be domestic, and small, and not epic or raging at all.

and now time is my time, time is my own
and I feel so alive yet feel so alone

two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
and sorry I could not travel both
and be one traveler, long I stood...
I shall be telling this with a sigh
somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.
-robert frost.

when I was young I knew a girl
who wouldn't love god as a test,
or gamble with her happiness
and so went astray
she fell away from the sight of the Lord
where she was free to do what she wanted
with gods of her own.
'Cause you're good enough,
good enough
good enough
to make it alone.
-neko case.
