Is this why I still feel like a child? Or at least like the same kind of adult I was as a child...

It was the night before,
When all through the world,
No words, no dreams
Then one day,
A writer by a fire
Imagined all of Gaia
Took a journey into a child-man's heart...

A painter on the shore
Imagined all the world
Within a snowflake on his palm
Unframed by poetry
A canvas of awe
Planet Earth falling back into the stars

I am the voice of Never, Never Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
I am the empty crib of Peter Pan,
A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the journey,
I am the destination,
I am the home
The tale that reads you
A way to taste the night,
The elusive high
Follow the madness,
Alice you know once did

Imaginarium, a dream emporium!
Caress the tales
And they will dream you real
A storyteller's game,
Lips that intoxicate
The core of all life
Is a limitless chest of tales...

I am the voice of Never, Never Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
I am the empty crib of Peter Pan,
A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the voice of Never, Never Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
Searching heavens for another earth...

I am the voice of Never, Never Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
I am the empty crib of Peter Pan,
A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear

Nice!  "I am the empty crib" read as melancholy, until I realized what the empty crib meant to me -- exploration and growth.

Snowed Under by Keane

There's a cold voice on the air
You've been looking everywhere
For someone to understand your hopes and fears
Well I've thought about that for many long years

So I walk through Mansers Shaw
I don't see you anymore
We love to think about the way things were
But the time has come and I'm glad it's over

I don't know why I waste my time
Getting hung up about the things you say
When I open my eyes and it's a lovely day
You know sometimes I feel like I'm
Getting snowed under with the things you say
When I open my eyes and it's a lovely day

Now you think that you're alone
So you make your way back home
I'd love to greet the weary traveller
But your time has gone and I'm glad it's over

I don't know why I waste my time
Getting hung up about the things you say
When I open my eyes and it's a lovely day
You know sometimes I feel like I'm
Getting snowed under with the things you say
When I open my eyes and it's a lovely day

I don't know why I waste my time
Getting hung up about the things you say
When I open my eyes and it's a lovely day
You know sometimes I feel like I'm
Getting snowed under with the things you say
When I open my eyes and it's a lovely day

I want to put (more) art like this on our walls, but do not think the others would like that.

"... With their infinitely cavernous black eyes, Lopez’s disquietingly amorphous characters invite viewers into the nightmarish dreamscape of our own psychological narratives."

"Alicia Martin Lopez is a visual artist from Spain currently living in New York. She obtained her BA degree in Advertising in 2007 and worked as web designer for 4 years in Madrid. She combined this activity with illustration and traditional drawing until 2011, when she received a Fulbright Scholarship to study a master’s degree at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She completed her Master of Fine Art degree in Computer Art in 2013, with a concentration on digital and traditional painting. She is now dedicated to this field, working as illustrator and concept artist while developing personal projects in both digital and traditional media."

"But what is it about shiba inus that makes them violate the selectional restrictions of certain English modifiers?"
 
There is an article making the rounds that is amazing. A linguist goes into detail about the language of the doge meme. You can find it here: http://the-toast.net/2014/02/06/linguist-explains-grammar-doge-wow/

My two take aways from it are as following (much excite):

1) Three people have tagged me in the comments or reshares of the article (so authority). None of those people were +Lex Larson (wow).

2) This image, which combines my two favorite memes of ever (such synergize):

I prefer to have my experiences incorrectly.

If "Other people having experiences incorrectly" is annoying to you, think how unbearable it must be to have a condescending stranger tell you they hate the way you're experiencing your life at just the moment you've found something you want to remember.
