Black Holes

Photo: Source

Staying in my candle-lit apartment with a glass of wine both last night and the night before was just exquisite. I spent both Saturday and today being perfectly unproductive- sleeping in, drinking endless pots of tea, reading Vogue, sitting at the beach, walking around downtown, buying these, watching movie after movie under the warm covers of my bed, browsing blogs, listening to Kings Of Leon and making plans for my upcoming detox. Sometimes an escape into my own little world feels exactly right.

In the movie Meet Joe Black, a lot of really wonderful things are said.
"Lightning could strike."
I always go back to it. I always think, "levitate, rapture, passion."
All those things.

"To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived."

There may not be any deep love for me at the moment-
but things like this-
words like this and ideas like this-
they keep the belief there.

That's beautiful. I've never heard that before, but I love it. I should plaster it all over because it's something I should do. Try.

Thank you for posting this Jen =)
