There is no better way to go about life except to embrace the unexpected, to learn to fly without wings, and to strive to love despite the dangers of pain. [Photo by Gideon Caballes. Taken somewhere in the beautiful, unexplored regions of Boston Cafe Gallery, 3 January 2009.]

The beautiful weekend is over. These are my anthems for the possible Monday blues....

From Beached
By Orbital

Trust me. It's paradise.
This is where the hungry come to feed.
For mine is a generation that circles the globe,
in search of something we haven't tried before.
So never refuse an invitation.
Never resist the unfamiliar.
Never fail to be polite.
And never outstay your welcome

Just keep your mind open and
suck in the experience.
And if it hurts,
you know what? It's probably worth it

You hope, and you dream.
But you never believe that
something is going to happen for you.
Not like it does in the movies.
And when it actually does,
you expect it to feel different.
More visceral.
More real.

I was waiting for it to hit me.

Hit me.

I still believe in paradise.
But now at least I know
it's not some place you can look for.
'Cause it's not where you go.
It's how you feel for a moment in your life.
If you find that moment, it lasts forever.
