Each one of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm, when we look at each other we must say, I understand. I understand how you feel because I have been there myself. We must support each other and empathize with each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.
- Maya Angelou
1. Gilet Faux-mink
2. Some WIFI
3. A3 Sketch-pad
4. La dame aux camélias // Alexandre Dumas (roman)
5. A small happy ending, this time not in metaphorical terms. An actual happy ending.
6. Some peace and quiet (not quiet likely, that would be nice though)
7. Diaries of Frida Kahlo
9. My heart to have reasonable expectations about the world.
Oh so, I guess the last one is the most realistic and cancels out the rest of them. I wish me a nice transition into age in advance.
We sat next to each other
And yet so far apart
I took long slow sips at my pineapple juice
And you watched television half-mindedly
I studied your face carefully
When the television dizzied you,
You’d write songs about other girls
The girls you met in subway trains overseas
