When you’re in the muck you can only see muck. If you somehow manage to float above it, you still see the muck but you see it from a different perspective. And you see other things too. That’s the consolation of philosophy.

David Cronenberg

I remember as a kid having a balloon and accidentally letting the string go and watching it just float off and into the sky until it disappeared. And there’s something about that, even, that feels very much like what life is, you know, that it’s fleeting, and it’s temporal.

Pete Docter

I’m not sure if I believe in luck. They say that koi are lucky. Am I painting them because they are lucky and I need all the luck I can get right now? No, I am painting them because they are beautiful and tranquil and  vibrant against a dark background.  Would I like to believe in luck?  I have been very lucky in my life and I know that some people have been very unlucky.  We can’t  make our luck.  Sometimes we are handed a very unlucky situation and no matter what, finding the silver lining is impossible. I can think of several examples but not in my life. I am lucky that the  bad things that have happened to me have  most often also been  the best things that has ever happened to me.

If you can survive it, perhaps their is silver lining to be found.

I’m still looking.

I’m open to it.
