What makes you happy?

Your happiness can only be described by yourself I am defining happiness in this thread as: satisfaction in most things in life, a joyful life and being glad you woke up. But free interpretation is required on this one. Explain how you define happiness yourself, before going on at these questions so...

Re: Introducing books to poetry

Hello. I recommend beginning with the greatest American poem. Thank you for your suggestion which I really appreciated and sorry for my late reaction, but I wonder if there is like a bundle/book from someone. I would prefer to read poetry about emotions and all that sentimental stuff where someones...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Thomas. I like the way your mind works but I reckon you just need to lighten up a bit. This should happen quite spontaneously as long as you don't try to force the issue. As an old fart rapidly approaching his dotage I speak from a wealth of experience. Thanks for the reply and compliment Leo! I ca...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Hi thanks for your reply and asking questions covering sociological aspects and converting it to realism. Which I indeed tend to try to ignore, because my fantasies should not be doubted by my rationiality haha. Why I would think my people would not turn against each other? Well first I should not b...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Thank you for your reply. I am very happy you agree with most of it and especially that you provide a new point of view : pointing out my pessimism and showing an optimistic way of thinking about the what next is gonna happen. All we that feel this way have to do is consistently point in the right d...

Re: I am struggling and need you

 It was the most beautiful thing I've ever done in my life. So thrilling and exciting. I could have fallen into a snowbank and not been found until spring... and it didn't matter. I was just so in love with the land and all of nature and the experience... and I still am. NOW there is this incredibl...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Addition from me: How about dumping all the stuff that one does not really need (watching TV, playing video games, travelling, hanging around, showing off, wasting time, looking for entertainment, gossiping, using gadgets) and devoting the time and space left to art ? I am myself still far away fro...

Re: I am struggling and need you

You sound as if you believe making art is not stressful. I am an artist and I can tell you that making art is sometimes very stressful. Art was just an example for the people that do art for relaxation etc. Since I am not the art type but prefer literature I indeed have very little knowledge about ...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Many of us can see issues with the world, which we would like to change... but which we realize is likely impossible to do on a large scale in our individual short lifetimes I completely agreed with this statement. The way I translate my thoughts and feelings trough the English language are not alw...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Your project reminds me of José Arcadio Buendía, the hero of "Cien anos de soledad" by García Marquez. A group of people went out into the wilderness in Colombia and made a new village. It is magic realism though, so we cannot expect any realistic advice from the novel, only the atmosphere of such ...

Re: I am struggling and need you

I think that is just a wonderful phrase.
A great synopsis of what I was trying to say, and if you do not mind I will quote you next time I am talking with someone about this.

And thanks a lot!

I admire you sir, you are being a good example for me.

Re: I am struggling and need you

Hi thanks for the reply Well I kind of drifted away from the statement I was trying to make. It was not my intention to make it about the colony stuff which I to be honest have not given that much thoughts before I wrote it down. Art was just one example of what we are neglecting. Just as our own he...
