Smaller is ok. Everything has its purpose.
Before you sweep something off the table + say, "I couldn't do that."
Well, maybe just try it first.

We still have everything in our own hands.
I have picked flowers where I found them-
Have picked up sea shells + rocks + pieces of
wood where there were sea shells + rocks + pieces of
wood that I liked
When I found the beautiful white bones
on the desert I picked them up + took them home too
I have used these things to say what is to me the
wideness + wonder of the world as I live in it
People are always doing the switcheroo on the latest, greatest shoe.
I wish people, myself included, would just wear one thing into the ground.
I want to see repeats.
I think repeats are cool.
There's a thing that you won't know
unless you live in something for so long that every day you put your foot in it, it's just forming to your foot until every other shoe or boot is like wrong.
We grow up being told so many times, 'This is the way the world is. This is the way things are.' I think we forget that we can choose the way the world will be, and that it can change. The number of real pressing concerns we are looking at today is unprecedented in human history...and this is the moment that we will be accountable for. You don't have to have children to feel it. You just need to be a part of the world right now and say: 'I don't think that putting the world on cruise control + letting transnational companies run the show has worked. I don't think governments have been the full answer.' Too many of us have resigned ourselves to the process, as if it's something we can re-engage in later.
The entire system needs addressing. ~Andrew Morgan
