Confessions of a Coffee Freak

Living in-between earth and sky

24 October

I'm not hungry for food, but for knowledge, for life experiences. I'm hungry for the esoteric, the exotic, the things that will make me wise in ways the average person can not understand. I'm hungry to awake each morning and get more out of my Kundalini practice, to learn something new and fascinating when I pick up one of my plethora of books that I have never read, to go places beyond my comfort zones.

A good writer stands above movements, neither a leader nor a follower, but a bright white golfball in a fairway of windblown daisies. -Hunter S. Thompson

Who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived, or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed? -Hunter S. Thompson

This is how the world works. All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him. He knew. He knew all along. - Hunter S. Thompson

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. - John Muir

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes Awww! - Jack Kerouac

I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion. - Jack Kerouac

Her drama was a drama not of heaviness but of lightness. What fell to her lot was not the burden but the unbearable lightness of being. - Milan Kundera

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. -George Bernard Shaw
