    it’s gonna be hard 

    the more creative you are the less likely you are to be understood

    the more ambitious you are, the more likely someone will want to stop you

    people will not call back. people will not write back. people will be people.

    read the Bible, they even acted this way to the guy who restored sight to the blind.

    it’s ok. it’s supposed to be hard.

    and you will break through.

    and it will be harder

    and you will get through that one. and again and again.

    when we are kids we fall and bounce back. we do it so much we dont even notice. and when we cry our parents who know better say hush now. shhhhh.

    whenever i think about winning the lottery it feels like a lot of work: how do you stop people from begging for some cash, what do you do about All the poor? what do you do about buying every pre-1984 Corvette model they made?

    how do you buy the Cubs?

    i dont worry about those things, being poor. in fact my worries seem minuscule in comparison.

    for example, if one is a billionaire can one just stroll on a beach in a country known for kidnapping rich people? no. if one is a billionaire and one sees an empty sky scrapper, can one just pass it by without thinking “how can i just fill this place up with homeless people and call it a day?”

    can a billionaire go to Guitar Center and leave without buying a piano, 10 guitars, 2 drum sets, a gong and a marimba? and then lessons. and then a smoke machine? and then that disco floor from The Jerk?

    how many bodyguards should a modern billionaire have? how many guns? how many houses? how many top hats? how many bowling alleys? how many dive bars? how many farms?

    the good book says its easier for a rich man to get through the eye of a needle than to get into heaven. how many good books does a rich man read? hopefully more than a working man because a rich man has more time? no?

    life is meant to be lived and a lived life isnt easy.

    if it was the aliens would vacation here more often.

    sometimes you write into the void and nothing 

    kidand at first youre all wtf and then one day you write and write and

    you get the sweetest cutest response back.

    im sure thats what the aliens are doing to us.

    im sure theyre sending us messages and sounds and songs and musical operas and

    we’re just too busy or cray or uptight to hear it

    but lawd knows as soon as we do we’ll be all

    omg hi aliens omg hiiiiiiii!

    there might be some of us who will be like

    do NOT respond, they’ll invade us if we do, they’ll take all our stuff

    they’ll eat our babies and make incredible love to our womens

    they’ll destroy the internet, they’ll pollute the skies

    they’ll move into echo park and ruin the housing market


    our job on earth, and its an easier one than we think, is to be brave

    we are here for the shortest tiniest little half note in the symphony

    and we can either be an awkward rest

    or we can be the coolest note

    something tells me we here to sing.
