Hunter S. Thompson’s Letter to Hume Logan. “‘To be, or not to be: that is the question.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...And indeed, that IS the question: whether to float with the tide, or to swim for a goal. It is a choice we must all make consciously or unconsciously at one time in our lives. So few people understand this! Think of any decision you’ve ever made which had a bearing on your future: I may be wrong, but I don’t see how it could have been anything but a choice however indirect— between the two things I’ve mentioned: the floating or the swimming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But why not float if you have no goal? That is another question. It is unquestionably better to enjoy the floating than to swim in uncertainty. So how does a man find a goal? Not a castle in the stars, but a real and tangible thing. How can a man be sure he’s not after the “big rock candy mountain,” the enticing sugar-candy goal that has little taste and no substance? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The answer— and, in a sense, the tragedy of life— is that we seek to understand the goal and not the man. We set up a goal which demands of us certain things: and we do these things. We adjust to the demands of a concept which CANNOT be valid. When you were young, let us say that you wanted to be a fireman. I feel reasonably safe in saying that you no longer want to be a fireman. Why? Because your perspective has changed. It’s not the fireman who has changed, but you. Every man is the sum total of his reactions to experience. As your experiences differ and multiply, you become a different man, and hence your perspective changes. This goes on and on. Every reaction is a learning process; every significant experience alters your perspective... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But don’t misunderstand me. I don’t mean that we can’t BE firemen, bankers, or doctors— but that we must make the goal conform to the individual, rather than make the individual conform to the goal. In every man, heredity and environment have combined to produce a creature of certain abilities and desires— including a deeply ingrained need to function in such a way that his life will be MEANINGFUL. A man has to BE something; he has to matter.”

Escrito: "10 de Julio".📄 . Corazón mío, . ya son muchos años luchando más los que hemos anhelados, hoy cumplimos un año más de vida; hubieron tantas sonrisas, lágrimas, caídas, batallas no terminadas, victorias no celebradas, abismos que parecían eternos, pero que no lo fueron; nos mantenemos de pie por los magistrales pilares que nos conforman. Con el tiempo aprendí que mi padre, mi madre y mi amor han respirado por mí cuando yo ya no podía más; la poesía, la música, lo verde de la naturaleza, el perpetuo viento que moldea el cabello en tiempos de condena, los admirables atardeceres junto a mi doncella y las noches de luna llena, los días con amigos verdaderos, amigos que al pasar del tiempo siguen y seguirán conmigo. Viven en mí los café por las tardes o noches junto a los seres que me vieron nacer, crecer y apoyarme en todo hasta el día de hoy, 10 de Julio. Hoy escribo con tinta del alma, hablo con mis latidos del corazón y yo seguiré viviendo entre las letras y el amor. La escritura, poesía y el vivir plenamente entre todo lo natural, los pensamientos y el sentir de la gente; son partes de este proceso de ir seguir creciendo. . Fotografía & Edición: C-ilis🪐 .
