Look up at the tops of the mountains against the light of the sun and climb to the highest one. to the highest place you can find. where you can see forever. in front, away beyond the red rooftops glisten after a shower of rain, into the depth of the horizon, and long veil-like shadows crept up a pure expanse of the sky, over the crystal blue water, over the low coast-line, over the prairies and swamps and the deep trees. from the north to the south sped those angels of heaven, from sea to sea, from mountain peak to mountain peak, spreading light from b****t and wing. stand on the very top, look all-around to see with your own eyes the whole world. look down upon the world from its summit. spread the arms. breathe in. jump off. and finally, and most importantly, don't fall.

Now that she had nothing to lose, she was free.

Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.

If you love someone, let him go. when you are controlled, isolated, jealous, prohibited from engaging in what you want, condemned for your work, this is not love. love - is freedom.

I believe in miracles, especially those associated with big passion. if a person is very passionate, has great courage and strength, he is capable of miracles. i believe that if you dare to try — miracles can happen. you have to open yourself up to it. when you put yourself in the path of it. when you take risks. when you say yes. i believe you will only see the miracle when you allow the unexpected to happen. there are people who do not believe in them, they live flatly by laws alone, they live in a world without magic and miracles... and it's so terrifying…

You know you do not have to be perfect. you do not have to walk barefoot for a hundred miles to your temple, like pilgrims, repenting. you only have to let your inner w****o love what it loves.

tell me about despair, yours, and i will tell you mine.

meanwhile the world goes on. meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, across the entire island, then all the way to the honey-perfect sunset and the night sky where a few faint stars dissolve into smoke rising from a chimney, over the quiet sea, over the low coast-line, over the prairies and swamps and the deep trees, the majestic pure blue mountains and the rivers and beyond. meanwhile the wild swans, high in the clear, sparkling air, are heading home again.
.
whoever no matter how lonely you are, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild swans, proud and thrilling – over and over announcing your place in the family of things.

Why struggle to open a door between us when the whole wall is an illusion?

The perfect journey is never finished, the goal is always just across the next river, round the shoulder of the next mountain. there is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore.

You know, when you sleep, when the moonlight falls on your face, i draw your eyes. lubberly, with my sleepy imagination i dream them open. blue like the sea, or brown like tea, it doesn’t matter. the only thing that matters is that they look at me. so i could look into them. because i know exactly that life will whirl tomorrow morning, it will knead us into the dough of bustle, it will whisper slyly a lot of funny absurd affairs in our strayed souls, you'll simply forget again to turn and look at me, and i'll forget again to tell you something very important that is hidden very deep inside my heart. but the next night i will not sleep again. i will draw your eyes. maybe one day the scales of fate will outweigh this grey sky that is falling into puddles, these cars racing to nowhere, spraying the stagnant loneliness with their wheels… and at sundown we'll freeze in the middle of this downtown noise, i’ll take your hand, just like in the early childhood, and you'll look at me with those eyes that were drawn one night.

Not everyone can withstand a calm sea. some people perceive the calm as an inner peace, others as a stagnation. i love the calm sea. our life itself is a sea surf with its eternal dancing waves. but when the wind unexpectedly stops there is a great calm — this is the best time to think about the most important and intimate in life… #keepcalm #worduuupgoestomontenegro

People often dm me asking how to have a lifestyle i have now. but be afraid of your desires, they may come true.

i’ve started traveling 10 years ago. more than 5 years ago i flew to africa for 3 months but never came back. since may 2017 i haven’t spent more than one month in one place: 16 countries (some of them twice), g-d knows how many cities and hotel rooms. during this time i lost all my connections in all the places i considered to be my home. sometimes i feel no strength to keep going.

traveling is a brutality. it forces you to be lonely, to start being truly honest with yourself, to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. you are constantly off balance. nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it. at some point you stop feeling the ground, you begin to exist in the universe that is in parallel to this real world where there is no place for you any more, your everyday experience turns into a big number of short stories, chapters, your life - into a virtual book you can not stop writing as you go.
.
yes, wandering is the oldest genre in literature. but wandering is important only when it becomes a metaphor, the main occupation of the main character, as in the case of the odyssey and in the parody of the odyssey - in dead souls and the story of chichikov's epic travels. but the problem is that this journey can never end. the character can not come anywhere. in other cases the number of journeys and their range is not that important, much more important is - their quality, and that in the long run the main journey is carried out deep within yourself.
