Quote of the Week

“The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy – not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy.

This requires a little bit of self-analysis.

What is it that makes you happy?

Stay with it, not matter what people tell you.

This is what we call following your bliss.”

~ Joseph Campbell

Quote of the Week

You have the Barons, who perceive change as a risk to their fiefdoms and personal importance. You have the Creationists, who feel comfortable with things as they are and distrust evolution. And you have the Romantics, who hark back to some imagined Camelot, when every subject in the kingdom was happy and prosperous.

~ Friedman, on the three camps that resisted change in Goldman Sachs

Polly Scattergood – Cocoon

From my cocoon of angel wings
From my cocoon, I’m gonna let you in

They sing of lost electric love
They sing about hope
They sing of giving up
And then they sing about joy
They sing of pain
They sing about cold metallic blame

From my cocoon of angel wings
From my cocoon, I’m gonna let you in

They sing of waiting endlessly
They sing about lost eternity
Then they sing about waking up alone
They sing about being on your own

From my cocoon of angel wings
From my cocoon, I’m gonna let you in

I’m gonna let you in
I’m gonna let you in
Just as the drum begins
I hear it whispering
I’m gonna let you in
I’m gonna let you in
Just as the drum begins
I hear it whispering

As I stumble, look away
Don’t want you to see me this way
I am no good, I am no good at all
Nobody catch me when I fall
They see the spiral on the edge
They see the winter like a ledge
Upon a ledge, we all just stumble down
Not built to last, not built to stick around

From my cocoon of angel wings
From my cocoon, I’m gonna let you in
