“There ought to be a place to go
when you can’t sleep
or you’re tired of getting drunk
and the grass doesn’t work anymore,
and I don’t mean to go
to hash or cocaine,
I mean a place to go to besides
the death that’s waiting
or to a love that doesn’t work
anymore. There ought to be a place to go
when you can’t sleep
besides to a TV set or to a movie
or to buy a newspaper
or to read a novel. It’s not having a place to go
that creates the people now in madhouses
and the suicides. I supposed what most people do
when there isn’t any place to go
is to go to some place or to something
that hardly satisfies them,
and this ritual tends to sandpaper them
down to where they can somehow continue even
without hope. Those faces you see every day on the streets
were not created entirely without
hope: be kind to them: like you they have not escaped.”

Charming Illustrated Cinemagraphs Reflect The Idyllic Mood Of Lazy Summer Days

by Rebecca Mock 

You can feel each one…

I’m almost at the end of my summer. I am not ready for this.

"Happy", I muttered, trying to pin the word down. But it is one of those words, like love, that I have never quite understood. Most people who deal in words don’t have much faith in them and I am no exception - especially the big ones like happy and love and honest and strong. They are too elusive and far too relative when you compare them to sharp, mean little words like punk and cheap and phony. I feel at home with these, because they’re scrawny and easy to pin, but the big ones are tough and it takes either a priest or a fool to use them with any confidence.”

Neon Sign Installations by Olivia Steele

Some of us just want to watch the show.
