There’s so much beauty in this world. So many beautiful people who don’t even know why they are that way. It’s the subtle gestures, and the little inflictions within their voices, and the way in which they carry themselves. Some people seem to flow or glide, while others appear to carry some of their heavy hearts in their boots. Some people speak softly, some with a little more volume, and some not at all. We’ll call some people ‘awkward’, but maybe they just don’t want to do anything to somehow be offensive to someone else. Then again, there are others who we call ‘irresponsible’ and ‘spontaneous’, but when there’s really no harm being done, those people are what most call free-spirited. I’ve found that our world was not designed for these kinds of people…
I think artists are perhaps the most beautiful, because they embellish all that which we try to understand as humans. It’s interesting, honestly, how they are both ‘outcasts’ AND ‘geniuses’, and I believe that this is the conflict from which their pictures take color, their words take meaning, and their music takes heart. These are the people who will love you wholeheartedly, or not at all. They may or may not show you how valid their love is for you because they are afraid of how you will perceive it, but most importantly, of how you will remind them of it in the future.
But we are all artists in our own little ways, like how we dress ourselves, how we choose our music, and especially by how we choose other people. Personally, I will love you for all your problems. For all the scars and bruises and mistakes you wear, you are beautiful to me, because you are a story. Whether or not you choose to hide in shadows or tip-toe in the dusk, or stand confidently in the light, there’s always some little bit of opposite that’s going to add a glint in your eye or a hint in your smile. And those little things make up something shape-shifting, vulnerable, and gorgeous.
And I know I won’t always say it directly to the majority of people, but just know that I really do love you, even if you think we don’t know each other enough. There’s always just something about someone.

…holy shit, I AM a fucking hippie! :) ...

“….take all the pain away. I cannot stay my hand from reaching out so that I can empower you for all eternity. It seems to ease my mind, to know that you’ve brought meaning to my life…”
