Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you. Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, ‘Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,” that is the perfect vibrational stance.’
I’ve always haunted independent bookstores, and I think the single coolest bookstore is Elliott Bay in Seattle — it’s completely beautiful. I love the big, beautiful independents. The big chains are so sterile. It’s not the stock at Elliott Bay so much as the quality of light and acoustics. There’s something about the spine glue from books mixed with wooden shelves. The scent makes my knees weak. To whoever put the comfortable chairs and the cafés in Barnes & Noble: those fluorescent lights have got to go. They really cause a sense of alienation.” David Foster Wallace.
