itty bitty shuttle
And how odd it is
to be haunted by someone
that is still alive.

You make my skin feel too small and my soul too big for my body and I wish I was done missing you yet


The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.
Ernest Hemingway (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

I’m thinking that it might actually be possible for things to work out sometimes. Definitely not everything and maybe not the way you imagined. But sometimes, when you least expected it, life surprises you.

My grandfather always says that is what books are for. To travel without moving an inch.

  My child, have you ever flown in a plane? Will you be able to go halfway across the world, live in a cold city with freezing winters?

The Namesake, 2007


The best sentences orient us, like stars in the sky, like landmarks on a trail. They remain the test, whether or not to read something. The most compelling narrative, expressed in sentences with which I have no chemical reaction, or an adverse one, leaves me cold. In fiction, plenty do the job of conveying information, rousing suspense, painting characters, enabling them to speak. But only certain sentences breathe and shift about, like live matter in soil. The first sentence of a book is a handshake, perhaps an embrace. Style and personality are irrelevant. They can be formal or casual. They can be tall or short or fat or thin. They can obey the rules or break them. But they need to contain a charge. A live current, which shocks and illuminates.
Jhumpa Lahiri, My Life’s Sentences

You are still young, free.. Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late.
Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake
