  • "When you walk out your door each morning, you can find new ways to see and new ways to live, if you look. You’ll be able to understand so many strange languages, so many secret codes. Things you’ve been struggling with will give way and become easier, more manageable, small enough to hold in your hand. Write your wishes down on paper and watch them become poetry; watch them become magic. Call your friends and tell them your secrets. Listen to the crickets outside your house at night. Watch the fireflies. Watch the golden moon."
    Have a great week, readers. (Via Madame Clairevoyant)
  • "But there are times, when I think about you and I miss… something. I don’t know that it’s you I miss, actually. It’s the feeling, or rather the realization that I could have loved something that unabashedly, that fully and truly."
    Josh Radnor (on Damien Rice, but really on other things too, like youth & love). (via 52hearts)

    i miss so many places but i really don’t miss any places at all.

    because missing a place is really a substitute for missing a group of people, a mindset, a time - an era of your life defined by your surroundings because they were different than anything else you’ve ever known. going back to the place won’t satiate the longing or quell the nostalgia, because no matter what, things have changed, and people have moved on and the place won’t be how you’ve left it. sometimes returning to the city or the country just adds to the emptiness of knowing that you can never return to those specific trips that shaped you; you’ll never recreate those memories fading ever-distant into your past. you can’t tug at the ever-flowing current of time to get just a few seconds back of that feeling of truly living that was inspired by the confluence of stars that brought you, those people, that place, those circumstances together all at once.

    so the only thing to do is keep chasing, chasing that wanderlust, collecting more and more experiences that you’ll then miss equally sharply, leaving a trail of goodbyes and adding to the ever-growing list of places you miss, experiences you ache to replay, moments that define who you are. those places are home, even if they will never exist again the way they did for you then.

    "

"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand." - Woodrow Wilson.

  • "Oh, Julia. I’m happy that we, as a society, are now willing to openly celebrate what was so obvious a quarter-century ago: She is the finest comedic actress of multiple generations. Acting teachers always talk about the importance of “presence,” but Louis-Dreyfus, with her wide-eyed gusto, looks downright tickled to be there even if “there” happens to be a one-bedroom apartment with a rabid New Jersey Devils fan. It’s no surprise that Louis-Dreyfus has had the best post-Seinfeld performing career, because she was always the show’s best performer."
    Andy Greenwald, “25 Thoughts on the 25th Anniversary of the ‘Seinfeld’ Premiere” [X] (via fuckyeahjld)
