Everybody might be crazy lately, but can anybody survive it? When you have a vision that won’t let you sleep, you might as well make an effort to make a success of it. Let the sun set on the sane, the later the hour – the lovelier the lunatic.

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep.” – Rumi
