Go and Experience Life with Someone

jlillie-2014-00039Took a hike yesterday. I recommend it to anyone, and everyone. Get out there. either by yourself, or with someone else. Maybe the special someone. Maybe just a friend. Maybe some random stranger. It really doesn’t matter. Go out, experience stuff, and the world around you. I don’t care if it’s a drive to somewhere you’ve never been, or that loop you do every week. Just do it. Take someone with you, experience it together and then talk about it. Put the phones away, or on airplane mode for picture-taking, and experience.

Words…

According to the Oxford English Dictionary there are almost a quarter of a million words in the English Language. It’s a little sad then that we use so very few to define and express our emotions and thoughts. Anyone else think we need to raise our vocabulary to something a little higher than, say, a fifth grader’s? Unless of course you find yourself a fifth grader…

Dylan Thomas – Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

A little something to get you thinking…

Dylan Thomas – Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
