from behind the rim of the moon,
in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty,
there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel,
a light, delicate sky-blue sphere
laced with slowly swirling veils of white,
rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery.
It takes more than a moment to fully realise this is Earth .... Home.
– Edgar Mitchell
We are hurtling on a large rock at 30 kilometres per second, that spins around every 24 hours, around a gargantuan star that is blazingly hot but gives us life coz we happen to be exactly the right distance from it.
Isn't that nuts?!?!?!
We start by dissolving our attitude, not by altering outer conditions.
– Bruce Lee
Internal. Not external. That's where we hold immense power.
Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.
– Miles Davis
I was pointed to this quote by a friend and it felt perfect. With each passing year, I feel I know myself a bit better. It has taken me 3 careers and multiple decades to get here and I can look back and see how many times I've misled myself by aping something else. Something else that I thought I needed to be. The more you be you, the more you discover your talents. Be you.
Thanks for reading.
