It’s a failure of vision, a failure to see the world how it is, to see the good in what it is, and only to wonder why the hell things look the way they do and not—and not some other way.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

Criss Jami, Healology

Listen now or listen later. There is no ignoring the call.”
