The swimming is on.
The swimming is on.
The swimming is on.
The swimming is on.
The swimming is on.
I am going insane.
I cannot explain my excitement for the Commonwealth or Olympic Games.
Oh man, feels.

-deep breaths-
My life is complete.

I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.

If you can see a future without me and that doesn’t break your heart then we’re not doing what I thought we were doing here.

We die to each other daily.
What we know of other people
Is only our memory of the moments
During which we knew them. And they have changed since then.
To pretend that they and we are the same
Is a useful and convenient social convention
Which must sometimes broken. We must also remember
That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.

There are 41 wars being fought around the world right now. Most of us are busy and we race through our weeks without paying a great deal of attention, but yesterday this week stopped, because one of those wars reached into the sky and grabbed 298 people who could have been any of us.

I think I keep telling myself you never loved
me at all because it is far less terrifying a
prospect than the possibility you did, you truly
did, but all of a sudden, and for no particular
reason, you stopped.

If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.

I didn’t realize it, but the days came along one after another, and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone.
