Anonymous: I just wanted to say thank you. I absolutely love this blog, and it just occurred to me that it wasn't right not to tell you that it's helped me so much so often. You're lovely.

you were one of two messages that i received this month after not receiving any since maybe november? so i want to say thank you. for reminding me why i started this blog, and giving me a reason to continue. not that i’m posting for messages or followers, but to share the words that meant something to me and know that those words helped someone else. that’s such a great feeling. you’re the lovely one!

Anonymous: “Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” ― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman,

124 notes "The time will come
When, with elation,
You will greet yourself arriving
At your own door, in your own mirror,
And each will smile at the other’s welcome.

And say, sit here, Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
To itself, to the stranger who has loved you

All your life, whom you ignored
For another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

The photographs, the desperate notes,
Peel your image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life."
Derek Walcott, "Love After Love"
