Who wants flowers when you’re dead

January 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

I hope to hell that when I do die somebody has the sense to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetary. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you’re dead? Nobody.

There are 6 billion people out there and not one of them really cares what you do with your life. So stop worrying about them and start living like YOU want to.

Spring is a state of mind

“Paris in spring” by Estonian folk-punk band The Flowers of Romance.

Poem by Sara Teasdale

Paris in Spring

The city’s all a-shining
Beneath a fickle sun,
A gay young wind’s a-blowing,
The little shower is done.
But the rain-drops still are clinging
And falling one by one –
Oh it’s Paris, it’s Paris,
And spring-time has begun.

I know the Bois is twinkling
In a sort of hazy sheen,
And down the Champs the gray old arch
Stands cold and still between.
But the walk is flecked with sunlight
Where the great acacias lean,
Oh it’s Paris, it’s Paris,
And the leaves are growing green.

The sun’s gone in, the sparkle’s dead,
There falls a dash of rain,
But who would care when such an air
Comes blowing up the Seine?
And still Ninette sits sewing
Beside her window-pane,
When it’s Paris, it’s Paris,
And spring-time’s come again.

Human behaviour

Any words next to this are just… unnecessary.

If you ever get close to a human
And human behaviour
Be ready to get confused
There’s definitely no logic
To human behaviour
But yet so irristible
There’s no map
To human behaviour
They’re terribly moody
Then all of a sudden turn happy
But, oh, to get involved in the exchange
Of human emotions is ever so satisfying
There’s no map
And a compass
Wouldn’t help at all
Human behaviour

“Home” (2009) is an extraordinary movie by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Launched in June 2009 in 50 different countries at once, it is now available in many languages.

The best news is: it’s copyright-free, so you can watch it anywhere, download and make copies to your friends and not feel guilty about it :)

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

And it really is worth sharing, because it gives an astonishing overview of our planet Earth. I love this Earth. Beautiful, beautiful…

Unfortunately, the videos won’t play embedded as for now. But you can go on the youtube page and watch the whole movie.

In English, en français, en español, in Russian, in German, in Arabic.

And visit the channel homepage http://www.youtube.com/user/homeproject as well to find interviews and extracts from this movie.

Love Earth.

If you could do anything, what would you do?

Kerli here is asking her friends, what kind of superpower they would like to have if they could choose… I’ve given it a thought lately – also found in another blog I sometimes read (in Estonian) the question: if you could be god for one day, what would you change / do in this world?

So I have to put my idea down to my own blog here as well. Just to remember sometimes.

*

i’d like to give people (many people, all people) more strength and belief in themselves – something like the ability, wisdom and courage to love yourself just like you are and be content; i think this would take away lots of sorrows from the world for truly happy and content people bring happiness to others as well.

or another thought, if we humans could have more linked minds with each other and with other living beings, plants, rocks, trees, everything… then we wouldn’t be able to hurt each other so nor nature nor earth. but it would only work if we accept ourselves for what we are first, for in this case, we’d love everybody else as we’d love ourself and we’d need to be able to love ourselves first. so.. back to the first idea.

*
But the thing is – I actually believe people are already able to do much more than they imagine; and WE ARE DOING IT, everything, creating the world around us. But as for the way I know I control my own thoughts and impulses – rather uncontrol them would be the more realistic verb – and it applies to most other people – the way we sometimes create anger bursts into the world, I sometimes think it would be better if human wouldn’t have all the unknown powers they embody… :/ But well, eh. In the end, I love the world just as it is. I hope I do… There is a reason for everything and you need not look for a god for that reason, but for yourself and your will.

Edit: this story fits here perfectly as well.
