“We're our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.”
- Tom Robbins
you read to heal but then you find lines to break your heart (from Nick Lantz’ How to Travel Alone):
Just days without you and I’ve got
that midnight streetlight tan,
that Big Chug Jug caffeine carelessness, that one loose
toll booth tooth, these highway hiccups.
There are only two directions in the map
of my life: the way to you, and the way
fire for fire, we light up.
the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

I’ve been a bad girl, I ain’t playing fair
I want you to be free, but I don’t wanna share

Is to pretend you don’t have one..”

The Moon Song
|| KAREN O ft. EZRA KOENIG
There’s things I wish I knew
There’s no thing I’d keep from you
It’s a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I’m safe and we’re a million miles away.
