Worry about yourself!

It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.

On An On, Ghosts

Follow your passion, we’re often told. But how do you find your passion? Let me put it another way: what is it that breaks your heart about the world? It’s there that you begin to find what moves you. If you want to find your passion, surrender to your heartbreak. Your heartbreak points towards a truer north — and it’s the difficult journey towards it that is, in the truest sense, no mere passing idyllic infatuation, but enduring, tempestuous passion.

The story of a surreal and poetic and imaginative idealistic young man, Colin, who meets Chloe, a young woman appears to be the epitome of a blues Duke Ellington. Their idyllic marriage turns bitter when Chloe falls ill of a water lily growing in his lung. To pay for his care in a fantasy Paris, Colin must work under increasingly absurd, while around them their apartment deteriorates and their group of friends, the talented Nicolas and Chick fanatic the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, disintegrates.

A film by Michel Gondry, starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Philippe Torreton, Alain Chabat, Charlotte Le Bon and Aissa Maiga.

Cold Back on Me, Wendy Waldman

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be cleaning you out
For some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from the beyond.

Rumi, The Guest House
