Amanda Palmer on The Art Of Asking

Her philosophy summed up:

“If you ask people to catch you, they will.”

But – you have to ask.

Yes.  Most definitely.  I’m still deeply grateful I was able to be caught in my life three times when I had no place else to go.   I have experienced people I barely knew opening up their homes to me when I was in deep trouble and they gave me safe harbor, no questions asked.

I also deeply agree with from this idea:

The greatest gift you can give someone is the gift of being ‘seen’.

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
