"I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’"
"Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag."
"I’ve gotten entirely too good at pretending it doesn’t hurt."
"Intimacy is not who you let touch your genitalia. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
How much would only being able to see in B&W suck.
You said to come when you’re ready
And I’ve been taking my time.
Burn all the wreckage
And start it all over,
We’re building a message
And life with you closer.
