I'm Nobody! Who are you? (260)

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

I'm Nobody! Who are you? (260)

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one's name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!

- Emily Dickinson
1830-1886
“To build up is to presuppose love; to be loving is to presuppose love; only love builds up. To build up is to erect something from the ground up—but, spiritually, love is the ground of everything. No human being can place the ground of love in another person’s heart; yet love is the ground, and we can build up only from the ground up. … Take love away—then there is no one who builds up and no one who is built up.” - Søren Kierkegaard

"Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody
This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done"

One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” “Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry.” “There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” “I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop."
