3,000 Views – Our New Resolution

Recently we hit 3,000 views, which although rather insignificant, is a landmark for us. Coincidentally, this also our 300th post, an achievement equally worthy of recognization. When we first started this website we had the sole intention of posting as much about art, literature and academia as we possibly could, but since our first post our aspirations have evolved far beyond that. The content on this site is by no means original, nor entertaining, and we try our best to accommodate these needs. So far our content has been repetitive, the usual biographies, movie stills, paintings, poetry; now we will try to extend beyond that. We still have the same goal in mind, but simply want to instill more entertainment, more vibrance and charm into our posts. WordPress is a great opportunity to express yourself; and with this in mind we initiate “The New Website”; while retaining old qualities seen in our previous posts we delve into more familiar, personal topics.

Be prepared for intellectualism beyond your wildest dreams; be ready for new realizations, endless knowledge and better understanding of life; with great pride and high expectations we begin the next stage of our website…

The Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
