So, that’s where the song came from. (Matt Corby talking about his song, Resolution) x
"To be free is something that I would really love. And I don’t know what that means, but I think a lot of people are in search of it, in some capacity. It doesn’t mean being free and living in the wilderness, it just means like, you know, introspectively and what you, sort of, exude- you know what I mean? It’s kind of an amazing thing. And I’ve met people that I feel like they’re free. And I guess they present themselves that way. It’s really special, and it affects so many people around them. And I’d love to get to that point one day, where I’m totally in control of who I am as a person, and in that way I can help others… It’s kind of a crazy emotional journey that everyone has to go on, and I guess music is my avenue to discovering it."

"To everyone overseas, I would like to come and play music for you sometime. That would be lovely. And if not—if I never ever meet you, have a lovely life. And stay in school, if you’re in school. And if you’re not in school, don’t go back. And don’t treat animals cruel."

Franz Kafka, the story goes, encountered a little girl in the park where he went walking daily. She was crying. She had lost her doll and was desolate.
Kafka offered to help her look for the doll and arranged to meet her the next day at the same spot. Unable to find the doll he composed a letter from the doll and read it to her when they met.
"Please do not mourn me, I have gone on a trip to see the world. I will write you of my adventures." This was the beginning of many letters. When he and the little girl met he read her from these carefully composed letters the imagined adventures of the beloved doll. The little girl was comforted.
When the meetings came to an end Kafka presented her with a doll. She obviously looked different from the original doll. An attached letter explained: “my travels have changed me… “
Many years later, the now grown girl found a letter stuffed into an unnoticed crevice in the cherished replacement doll. In summary it said: “every thing that you love, you will eventually lose, but in the end, love will return in a different form.”"
For me there are two wise lessons in this story: Grief and loss are ubiquitous even for a young child. And the way toward healing is to look for how love comes back in another form. - May Benatar
the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
