replacing my heart with another liver so i can drink more and care less
If you give yourself one complete minute of focused presence, to simply stop - even to listen to your heart beating - it will take you out of your head and introduce you to the moment… which is complete in itself. It is not on the way to another moment. It is not a bridge to another opportunity. It is the timeless perfection… So stop…and sink into this timeless moment.

There is an urge to say: I was here, I felt this, and it matters!

Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be — we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others.
Neil deGrasse Tyson on Carl Sagan at yesterday’s Library of Congress event celebrating Sagan.
Neil captured it perfectly yesterday. So lucky to have been in that room. Gave me chills.
Sagan was so good, so passionate, so dedicated to delivering and defending the beauty of science. If we are measured by our impact on others, and I believe that we are, then Carl Sagan stands with his head grazing the stars themselves.
It’s never quite right, all the things we are taught, all the loves we chase, all the deaths we die, all the lives we live.
