"Why do you not do as I do? Letting
go of your thoughts
as though
they were
the cold ashes of a
long
dead fire?”

Between my sleeping and dreaming,
Between me and the one in me
Who I suppose I am,
A river flows without end.

Fernando Pessoa, “30 August 1933,” A Little Larger Than the Entire Universe (via heteroglossia)
