"10. Lie through your teeth and accept cigarettes, even if you just slide them behind your ear like James Dean. In general pretend to be tougher than your father, blanker and crazier than your mother with her particular interests and phobias. Insist upon the window opened a crack. Write down what you see until you feel sick. They’ll stop. They don’t want you to puke all over the dash. That’s when you get out and wait for a different ride. Number ten is huge. Your survival as a hitchhiker depends upon it. I love you; please don’t die."

from “The Ten Essential Rules of Hitchhiking,” Bhanu Kapil, Incubation: A Space for Monsters 

(i first read this part after not having slept for the night, sitting outside by astor place waiting for two people who would be arriving at such different times, being very very aware of the sunlight and the blue skies and how little i was accustomed to either. i read this part and something inside of me cracked and i wiped at my face because i didn’t realize i was crying. i love you; please don’t die. i love you; please don’t die.)

"I wonder
whose arms would I run and fall into
if I were drunk
in a room with everyone
I have ever loved."

You get it together by being together. No virtues such as truth, integrity, generosity, love are lonely. None of them are found on its own. One can’t trust alone or love alone or hope alone. All grow best when we are with one another, in pursuit of these things together. The core is connection, devotion, compassion; Light is found together.
