a girlfriend is not a commodity, a girlfriend is a cool person that I want to spend time with who I think also are really attractive and I also possibly maybe wouldn’t annoy to death in 50 years who is kind enough to agree to me being her boyfriend. I can’t think of any way to “look” for someone like that specifically, other than to be easy going and not really worry about other people too much and I just kind of work on myself a lot and try to make cool things and if people notice that than yay
and to tell people that you like that you like them
She was sleeping next to me when I felt the earth move. Now, it didn’t move in the way that would rattle the insides of my parent’s grandfather clock as a kid. This wasn’t some weak tectonic movement, because I swear to you it started from her heartbeat and reverberated inside me until until it was deafening. I’m scared to death that one day I’ll admit to her that she’s the only one who makes me feel alive, but I’m dying to tell her that her bed is the only place I I have left where I can truly find rest. While she slept, she grabbed my arm in hers and laid her head on my chest, as my mind filled the spaces left on her shelf with memories of moments that never happened, nor never will.
This is a video I’m certain I’ve posted before, but it’s one of the most brilliant videos I’ve ever seen. As someone who photographs everything with the knowledge that nothing is permanent, this video hits home on so many levels. It’s so easy to get lost in a memory sparked by a photograph, and I love how sweet this video tells that story, and I cry a little every time I watch this, but I watch it often to remind myself to take photos, to live moments, to keep important people around because nothing is permanent, but as long as I’m alive, I’ll have my memories, and as long as I’m alive it’s important to share them with other people.
