Listening: Thoughts from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

John Green being amazing and bringing awareness to his fans and the world. I love it. There are people seeing this right now that might not otherwise just because they’ve read his books and seen his vlogs. 

Stop being so amazing John!     Kidding. Keep doing what you’re doing!

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
