I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
A child with its ear to the rails is listening for the train. Lost in the omnipresent music it cares little whether the train is coming or going away … But you were always expecting someone, always parting from someone, until you found yourself and are no longer anywhere.
My mother always said -
I was too sensitive,
I shouldn’t let people get to me,
Words shouldn’t pierce my skin;
But see the trouble is
Now when you tell me you love me
I only feel it skin deep,
I’ve become so guarded
Love slides right off me.
