""I’m quite in love with the human race and this planet that we live on, and I see life as very fresh and beautiful. People say to me, ‘Oh you have the world in your hands’ or ‘You’re young and you have all these opportunities.’ But that’s not why I feel the way I do. It’s just my reality. I’ve felt that way before too. Still, I get very frustrated with the pace of life - I want so badly for people just to understand each other and communicate better! With all this technology, that’s the best we can do? Pride so often gets in the way, in politics and everywhere else. It’s depressing. "But," he concludes, "there’s the optimistic side of me too, which believes that we live in an incredible time and that if we all come together on the important issues and stand up for our rights, as Bob Marley said, we could really accomplish a lot. I guess I’m a perfectionist. In my mind, I have all these Utopias and fantasies, but I believe they can work. I really do.""

"I think the Bible is an incredible history book, but I feel organized religion is bullshit. It’s caused more wars and bloodshed than anything else. But I do feel secure in being able to draw from it. I think there’ll be a stage in my life where I’ll get into it more, and try moving off into the jungle like the guy in Mosquito Coast, to find myself and all that stuff. But right now, I’m eighteen, and I don’t want to spend a lot of time thinking about it. I already live by a code of ethics, so I’m an all-right person. I’m not messed up."
- River Phoenix, Playgirl, August 1988.

Memoir

During the time I’ve been updating the blog, I have read several lovely things written by you about River. Several of the followers here write really beautiful, kind and passionate things about him and I’m just in love with these little demonstrations of love and affection. It is one of the nicest ways to see how River is present in the lives of so many different people and how important he is - and how we are all connected because of it. And for that reason, I decided to create a space to it: where you all can share your feelings about River in the same place and, this way, we can have a space dedicated to remember those beautiful and different memories. <3 

I also want to thank everyone who helped with the questions for the surprise… you’re awesome. I’ll put everything together and get a general idea, to be able to make it happen. It may take some time because of the work of selecting the questions, submit it and get the answers, but it will be done! I’ll try to post it as soon as possible.
