I love thee. Someone gifted me a compass with it’s inside inscribed with Tambourine Man lyrics. If only you knew how much your verses mean to me. If only you cared about how others felt about your existence. 
Sigh. Nevertheless, it was an amazing birthday gift according to me. 
Now when I use my compass, searching for directions, my compass is playing background music” Hey Mr.Tambourine Man, play a song for me… “

I am now 19 years old. This last year, I hope to make the most number of scars.

The Cradle
There is a small box of love letters under my bed; evidence of my youth and a time when our hearts were all that mattered.I am not nostalgic, although naturally like most I sometimes dwell on the whys and what ifs,and I am certainly not going to pretend that I have no regrets, but as I sit here on the edge of my bed—in the silence that comes with evening and cradles reflection—I think I am ready to answer them.

I fall in love everyday reading this.

The Cradle

There is a small box
of love letters under my bed;
evidence of my youth and
a time when our hearts were
all that mattered.
I am not nostalgic, although
naturally like most I sometimes
dwell on the whys and what ifs,
and I am certainly not going to
pretend that I have no regrets,
but as I sit here on the edge of
my bed—in the silence that
comes with evening and cradles
reflection—I think I am ready
to answer them.

I fall in love everyday reading this.

Franz Kafka on why writing is so important
In January of 1904, he expounds in a letter to Pollak:

I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us. That is my belief.

The Manson Family was a cult started by Charles Manson.  Manson was born to Kathleen Maddox, an unwed sixteen year old girl, in 1934. It is said that his mother, an alcoholic, sold him to buy beer.  When he was returned to her she had him sent to a boarding school.  After a number of years living with his religious aunt and uncle, he returned to his mother who rejected him.  After a number of robberies, he was put in jail for the first time.  One month before his parole hearing in 1952, he raped a boy in jail by holding a razor to his throat.  Two years later he was paroled.  Manson began to pimp a young woman he met and eventually took her, and a second woman to New Mexico to work for him as prostitutes.  He was caught and tried under the Mann Act (a 1910 act that prohibited white slavery and trafficking for immoral means). In 1967 he was released (having spent more than half of his life in institutions). Upon release, he requested permission to move to San Francisco which was granted.  When he arrived he became part of the Hippie movement and he set himself up as a guru.  He moved in with 23 year old student Mary Brunner and convinced her to allow other women to join them.  Eventually eighteen other women were living with them – this was the beginning of the family.
By 1968, Manson had established a home for the “family” at a ranch owned by George Spahn.  Manson convinced one of the family members, Lynette Fromme, to sleep with Spahn in order to get free rent.  Manson began teaching his followers that social uprisings were coming – using the assassination of Martin Luther King as evidence.  He also told them that the social turmoil he had been predicting had also been predicted by The Beatles.  The White Album songs, he declared, told it all, although in code; in fact, he maintained, the album was directed at the Family itself, an elect group that was being instructed to preserve the worthy from the impending disaster. In 1969, on August 8, Manson told Family members at Spahn Ranch, “now is the time for Helter Skelter.”  That evening the family, under the direction of Manson, would commit the famous murder of Sharon Tate, leading to other murders over the two day period.
