Please ask questions of everything and everyone. Never settle for what’s been said and done a thousand times before. Please be skeptical of what is popular. Of who has deemed what is popular. Of who has deemed the deemers fit for that job, and so on. Do this, even if one of the deemers is you. Please look around you, not with a closed mind built by frustration but with curiosity built by concern. Find the ways in which the world can change, creatively, and with love in mind. Please don’t be like everyone else. Please become your self. And bear in mind that your self is not supposed to be like any other self, just like any other self is not supposed to be like you, and so on. Please cherish how beautiful life can be, and when that beauty is tarnished, clean up the mess. Don’t just mop up the spill, but bravely approach the spillers, then the people who inspired the spillers to spill, and so on. Do this, even if one of the spillers is you. Please, please, please. Be kind. Be daring. Be different. Because if the world wasn’t sick, I wouldn’t have to beg for it to be well.

❝ She will hang the night with stars so that I may walk abroad in the darkness without stumbling, and send the wind over my footprints so that none may track me to my hurt: she will cleanse me in great waters, and with bitter herbs make me whole.

— Oscar Wilde, from De Profundis (chaosinordnung)

❝ The air is still
warm, flesh moves over
flesh, there is no
