Real fearlessness is the product of tenderness. It comes from letting the world tickle your heart, your raw and beautiful heart. You are willing to open up, without resistance or shyness, and face the world. You are willing to share your heart with others. — Chogyam Trungpa (via lazyyogi)

"What can you do. You get a name, and it stays that way for the rest of your life. And if at some point you go for a walk in the woods, and someone takes a photo of you, then for the next eighty years you’re always walking in the woods. There’s nothing you can do about it."
- Thomas Bernhard — whiskey river
One year at the fair, Mad Dog told me to park my car on the backside of the midway, behind the Tilt-a-Whirl. I did this for eleven days (when offered a good parking spot on a midway, you take it without question) but what I didn’t realize when I started was that people were going to exit the Tilt-a-Whirl and brace themselves against my car while they threw up that funnel cake they just ate. Thank God it rained a lot that year.
