After you’ve spent 4 days on a row with 50+ beautiful souls singing and laughing and being alive, you know you’re going to have the worst Monday ever when all is over.

(But I’m happy, happy anyway. This is what matters.)

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.
