Inspiration Sandwich by Sark

Stay loose. Learn to watch snails. plant impossible gardens.

invite someone dangerous to tea. make little signs that say yes!

and post them all over your house. look forward to dreams.

make friends with freedom & uncertainty. cry during movies.

swing as high as you can on a swing set, by moonlight.

cultivate moods. refuse to “be responsible.” do it for love.

take lots of naps. give money away. do it now.

the money will follow. believe in magic.

laugh a lot. celebrate every gorgeous moment.

take moonbaths.

have wild imaginings, transformative dreams, and perfect calm.

draw on the walls. read everyday.

imagine yourself magic. giggle with children.

listen to old people.

open up. dive in. be free.

bless yourself. drive away fear.

play with everything.

entertain your inner child.

you are innocent.build a fort with blankets.

get wet. hug trees.

write love letters…
