Neil Gaiman, I want to run away with your words

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.56.36 AMRESOURCE ALERT: Found this book in the Flagstaff library right when I needed it. Neil Gaiman, writer extraordinaire, gave a graduation speech that rocked it out of the park that was compiled into a book. These words gave me new course direction.

“Something that worked for me was imagining that where I wanted to be…was a mountain. And I knew that as long as I kept walking towards that mountain I would be all right. And when I truly was not sure what to do, I could stop, and think about whether it was taking me towards or away from the mountain.”

“If you have an idea of what you want to make, what you were put here to do, then just go and do that.”

“I tended to do anything as long as it felt like an adventure, and to stop when it felt like work, which meant that life did not feel like work.”
