The six things I could never do without
I take care to enjoy the little things as much as I can. I handle things with care and intention. life is porous and strange, it is better to bend than to break, things come and things go, it's best just to let them.

at least thats what i scream into my pillow every other night ^___^
I spend a lot of time thinking about
trying to dumb myself into the present.
"are my shoulders resting in their joints properly?"

"I hold this to be the highest task in the relation between two people: to stand guard over the other's solitude."
-Rainer Maria Rilke

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
