I’m leaving for the south of France tomorrow morning. Will be back early September. Au revoir!
“And God is filling me,
though there are times of doubt
as hollow as the Grand Canyon,
still God is filling me.
He is giving me the thoughts of dogs,
the spider in its intricate web,
in all its amazement,
and a slain ram
that is the glory,
the mystery of great cost,
and my heart,
which is very big,
I promise it is very large,
a monster of sorts,
takes it all in—
all in comes the fury of love.”
Because if I were able to live my life again, I would do things differently.
I would change my life.
I would kiss my piano teacher, even if he laughed at me.
I would jump with Mary on the bed, even if I made a fool out of myself.
I would send out ugly photographs, thousands of them.” —Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer (via melancholynotes)
