    The gods envy us. They envy us

    because we’re mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again. Homer, The Iliad

    She Said It Best...

    “If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul

    and get to know a man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, of seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you will get better results of you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he’s a good man.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    Finding out Who you really are underneath all

    the imposed labels, outside of all man-made boxes and living, consciously, as your highest self, is the most courageous act of rebellion you could ever chose. Don't fear. The stage may be set, but, the story has to change If we redefine our "roles".
