Let us greet this Wednesday with one of my favorite poems by e.e. cummings. Introduced to me by my fabulous junior year English teacher Ms. McCarthy, this has stuck with me through the thick and the thin. I find it appropriate for this week (as my attempts to focus my research ideas into a meaningful topic continue) and presume it will remain appropriate in the weeks to come. Keep following that dream and trust in yourself. Everything you have done up to this point has brought you to exactly the point you are at right now. You are fully prepared to be exactly where you are and where you will be going. Honor the past and welcome the future with open arms.
dive for dreams – e.e.cummings
dive for dreams or a slogan may topple you (trees are their roots and wind is wind) trust your heart if the seas catch fire (and live by love though the stars walk backward) honour the past but welcome the future (and dance your death away at the wedding) never mind a world with its villains or heroes (for good likes girls and tomorrow and the earth) in spite of everything which breathes and moves, since Doom (with white longest hands neating each crease) will smooth entirely our minds -before leaving my room i turn, and (stooping through the morning) kiss this pillow, dear where our heads lived and were.
