everything_is_temporary
young pretender it is.

the friends you make - temporary. the place you live - temporary. your time on this earth - temporary. the way you feel - temporary.

everything changes, fades, ends.

or am i the only one who thinks this? is this just my way of hiding, of refusing to form emotional attachments to anyone and anything because i know they're just 'temporary'? my way of keeping a distance, detaching myself, making sure nothing is real?

nothing_is_real . what is this, apathy? nihilism? an uncaring, shit_happens attitude?

is this just my security, so that if i don't achieve all i want in life, don't make my mark on the world, i can always believe that somehow, magickally, things will fix themselves because this is just a temporary state?

do i give a fuck? no, not really. i'd be interested to hear your thoughts. but it's gonna take one hell of an argument to persuade me that it's not true.

sameolme We are all temporary phenoms
Its not a good excuse for failure. Our temporariness is not an excuse for anything, it just is.
It just is, and it just is the most
mind blowing aspect of life.
Some day in the not too distant future, I won't exist, and neither will anybody who knew me. All sorts of stories are
told about heaven, hell, rebirth, etc., but it looks like all we get is this temporary chance to make our lives mean something, temporarily.

minnesota_chris Someday, the earth's core will cool, and the earth will turn completely solid. The magnetic field will end, and solar radiation will strip this planet of our atmosphere.

The sun will expand and burn off all the planet's water.

But all these things haven't happened yet, and this morning was quite beautiful.

stork daddy does that mean the status of everything being temporary is itself temporary? 041219
...
young pretender that's a mind bending statement stork_daddy.

maybe so.

it's a comforting thought, i think. that there's this constant motion, this change, this fluidity to life. reassuring.

memory is just our image of perfection.

dandy you have nice memories. action, movement is perfection, lost in the moment is perfection. this is not one of those moments. I know too well where I am and where I am going.

It's comforting to know things are temporary, wering a coat and scarf indoors at work to stay warm, the phone having been stolen and unreplaced, the building doing fire alarm testing today, not yesterday as they posted and my concentration being broken every few minutes, the vacuuming that meets me when I open the door of the hall, the cat vomiting in the kitchen, the bitter cold that makes my spiritual flight wings ice up and it not being payday until tomorrow night with $100 to spare and pray there aren't checks out that I forget writing. this, all this too shall pass.

yah. Though I slog thru the valley
of cloudy breath and fear every evil,
blather is with me and Rodney on Staff
comforts me.
I'll reserve a table for nine
in the precinct of Allemagnes
I'll anoint my bread with oil;
my cup may overflow
but a waitress will clean up
after me. I won't dwell in the doldrums
forever.

unhinged maybe it was the coffee i was drinking
maybe it was the music i was listening to
maybe i can't live without you
and my eyes just won't close
you're so near while so far
i wanna take your ride
wish upon your star
let's just say it was the coffee
or the music
i can't be falling_into_memories_of_you
doing me the way you do
everything is temporary
just make it go away
the day i met you
and how i want you to stay
