We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.

if you hug me, you aren’t allowed to half ass it. i don’t want that awkward one arm bullshit. I want 100% squeezy, warm, cozy, i-fuckin-mean-it hugs and any less is an indication of WEAKNESS
Time flows in a strange way on Sundays.
especially when spent with your lover who is so generous with his i love you’s and kisses you tenderly as he leaves your bed to finally finish up work now that you’re falling asleep around 3 am because he wanted to spend your waking hours together. time certainly flows differently when you’re both doing chores together, eating breakfast, cleaning the house, him thoroughly cleaning your car, making dinner, relaxing, etc. time does indeed pass in a curious fashion when you’re doing life together but it does so in such a halcyon manner that i can and am getting used to times like these, Sundays like this.

Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.

'There's no need for heartbreak warfare. It's called 'I love you' — 'I love you too'. 'I need more love' — 'You got more love', and you can get through life like that. Shouldn't you just on days where you want more love be like 'I had a bad dream that you were sleeping around, it's really irrational, but just love me extra today'. Why can't we just have this thing where you just say 'Just love me extra today'. If I was with somebody and they said 'Love me extra today', I would love them extra forever.'

there’s nothing quite like seeing someone dear you haven’t seen in a long time. the undiluted joy that builds as you near each other and then just flats out erupts and settles over you like a blanket. you’re as wholly wrapped up in joy and companionship as you are in their embracing, encompassing hug. it’s good to see dear faces after awhile. we cling on to them
I forgot where I was going with this but it reminds me of people-watching in airports, the girls in mother’s market & cafe, josh in my driveway, family, and James.
