(Read while listening to: Guaranteed and Society by Eddie Vedder)
"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more…"
... do you know how I feel when I see the clouds moving?
Every time I look at them, I know that everything in the world is perfect. I'm at peace as I witness eternity, beauty, freedom; life's bold power over me.
I am saved from the ordinary.
I yearn for a weightless existence.
Your nature is one with Nature too.
Have you got an idea of how wide our selves can get to be?
I get it everytime I look at the clouds moving.
Please, help me get rid of my self image, my attachments, my mind limitations.
Please, teach me how to soar up in the skies...
I want my cells to scatter across the open, infinite blue and white.
If only we could remember...
