There it was before her - life. Life: she thought but she did not finish her thought. She took a look at life, for she had a clear sense of it there, something real, something private, which she shared neither with her children nor with her husband. A sort of transaction went on between them, in which she was on one side, and life was on another, and she was always trying to get the better of it, as it was of her; and sometimes they parleyed (when she sat alone); there were, she remembered, great reconciliation scenes; but for the most part, oddly enough, she must admit that she felt this thing that she called life terrible, hostile, and quick to pounce on you if you gave it a chance.

━ Virginia Woolf 
…to feel the mouth burn. To feel the sudden
presence of what, again and again, was not said.

To know at last that nothing is more real than nothing.

━ Mark Strand, from Seven Last Words
Dear Catastrophe Waitress
Track: Wrapped Up In Books
Artist: Belle and Sebastian
with 115 plays

don’t buy that “love is a serious word” crap. love freely and carelessly. love yourself. love that lady bird that just flew past. love that cutie that served you lunch at a cafe that you’ll probably never see again. love every single cat you see and when you stop loving someone or something, don’t fight it.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald 

I’m self-sufficient. I spend a lot of time on my own and I shut off quite easily. When I communicate, I communicate nine hundred percent, then I shut off, which scares people sometimes.

But you are my nomad and I love you sideways daily. Sideways because I have to beam my love in all directions, hoping it bounces off something and eventually finds you.
