Sometimes it doesn't feel so lovely, does it? Just thinking about all the times I resign myself to letting things leave me. The expectation(s) that something small would grow into something far more significant and beautiful. And when that doesn't happen, we have let it all go. At the end of the day, it is [...]
I'll be honest: this quote, albeit lovely, still triggered me a bit. Because I'm so tired of traveling alone. And when it comes to my favorite season, there's an unbearable aspect about it: enjoying the beauty and electricity in the air by my lonesome. I've discussed this before--that something about fall that drives the desire [...]
