Bird in the Storm…

“There is no escape… You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the apprehension of death. Say yes to everything, shrink nothing. Don’t try to lie to yourself. You are not a solid citizen… You are a bird in the storm. Let it storm! Let it drive you!” Hermann Hesse

I live... for love... for truth that liberates... for growth... for beauty... for intelligent, soulful connection and so much else.

  1. This is beautiful. My avatar is Petchary, which is also a bird that sings most in the stormy tropical summertime. I can completely relate to this. I have always loved Herman Hesse since my teens when I first discovered him!
    Thanks for sharing.
