“The popular mind often pictures gigantic flying machines speeding across the Atlantic and carrying innumerable passengers … It seems safe to say that such ideas are wholly visionary.”—William Henry Pickering, Harvard College Observatory astronomer, 1908 (via an-idlers-miscellany)
I love doing my thing while someone else is in the room doing their thing. Like if you come over and you want to sit by the window and read while I sit on the floor drawing something and listening to a cd that would be very nice.
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”—Joseph Campbell (via theonlymagicleftisart)
