"THE FUTURE BELONGS TO THOSE WHO CREATE IT."

We are perfect and ripe just before decay.

Knowing this, a new consciousness, inevitably kills the old. One of the most painful things a person can experience is the agony of change.

If you truly love a concept, a vision, a person, an ideal...You cannot waver, or surrender to habit. Do not feel fear of what will be newly gained, and do not try to jump in a grave when we need to pay our respects and leave a tragedy.

We are brave and we are NOT uncaring. We care...I care... about the soul of what I create, because it IS my very soul.

As I write this, I am watching Fellini's version of E.A. Poe's "Never Bet The Devil Your Head."

Amusing. Will happiness drive us to despair?

When I wake up, it will be a new day. Tomorrow is closer than yesterday.
