“I knew that I never wanted to stop walking; I wanted to see places and somehow understand what this thing called earth was all about. There were so many people out there, and I had to meet them. I felt safe and at home on the roads to nowhere, I felt welcome and protected in the unknown land and I fell in love with the people around me.

I change with the seasons and the seasons live in me, depending on the weather as if it’s something to be trusted. I don’t feel safe unless I’m far below or high above, near the ocean, or climbing the mountain. Where I can’t be reached or seen by anyone or anything and not even myself, because it seems to me that these voices in my head get louder just to kill the noise from the outside, and so I need to go away from time to time. You will never see me surrender, never see me cry, but you will often see me walk away. Turn around and just leave, without looking back.” ~ Charlotte Eriksson

“They can’t chain my spirit! My spirit runs free! Walls can’t contain it! Laws can’t restrain it! Authority has no power over it!” ~ Bill Watterson

“I never said it was easy to find your place in this world, but I’m coming to the conclusion that if you seek to please others, you will forever be changing because you will never be yourself, only fragments of someone you could be. You need to belong to yourself, and let others belong to themselves too. You need to be free and detached from things and your surroundings. You need to build your home in your own simple existence, not in friends, lovers, your career, or material belongings because these are things you will lose one day. That’s the natural order of this world. This is called the practice of detachment.” ~ Charlotte Eriksson

And maybe an astronaut will come around one day, and say, “Hey, this is a cool planet, that’s a cool flower, maybe I can stay here.” You know? So far, the astronauts that visit, say, “Hey this is a cool planet and that’s a cool flower, I wonder what happens if I pick this flower, bring it home and teach it how to grow in my backyard soil.” I’m a Martian flower. I have my own planet, my own soil, I don’t need to be anything other. It’s a pretty great planet, but you have to have Mars in your heart to stay here. You need to turn Martian. Martian flowers don’t grow in your backyard.” ~ C. JoyBell C.
