Be a Journalist

This means write down your ideas. Simple. That's all it means.

You don't have publish or print or share or edit.

Know that your building a pile of gold. And if gold isn't cool enough for you, or your not into that sort of thing. Know that your building a pile of exclamation points/ an ellipsis with orion's belt loops/ a mound of pictionary/ a stash of chicken scratch. BBQ if you want/ a place to keep your museum/ a branch to hold your diving board/ A shelf to encompass your shelf life.

Today I finished the 4th Volume of Square Journal Project. Here are some quotes:

"I dedicate this book to self education"

"Don't sugar tail coat your history writing books for classrooms like that"

"The man turned to me and said: "it's not easy being rich" without even knowing my name"

"Is the way you play your game an asset or a liability for your basketball team?"

"When i got to the point where I could stop telling myself things had been taken from me, and started saying that I gifted them. That's when I was able to start really living again"

"this pictures worth...???"

"You have to explore your dream of how you want the world to look. How you want the relationships of the world to work. We spend a lot of time trying to figure out how the world around us works. You are your best answer"

"strange hearted folks believe in strange hearted things"

"im not worried about action only inaction - winston churchill"

"the entrepreneur will take what seems from the outside to be a wild risk. But his high self-confidence means that it does not seem such a great risk to him. Because he believes in himself so much, he calculates the odds differently - Paul Hawken"

"The Willflower"

"effort < joy
  effort > joy
  effort = joy"

"What you didn't know is the team that beat you has been playing together since 4th grade"

"Speaking is not for me. I was actually hoping that it would be for us"

"Tell me your innermost connection. Your truism. Narrow it down to a single digit. Build a stairwell, a wishing well, and a fair well. Start from the top down, the bottom up, the inner out, the middle more, the weakest ink, the smallest pawn, the fastest gun shot wound, the last survivor. Start from the 7th sentence, the barking hound sent, the square marked one, the way your compass points, the stroke of midnight, the stroke of death, the sound of rising bread, the sound of perfect coffee, the weight of a dog sled, the call of the wild. Be baritone street knuckle rooster chest with a soft spot for a mandolin. A broken fine tooth comb set out to line up that pompadour high and mighty like you just pulled a sword out of a bricklayer. He lay there giggling his best most best selected words, telling you how to cement your life together, so that you could stand for something great."
