I find comfort in the fact that the spectrum of human emotion can be organized so neatly.

When something bad happens and you forget about it for a little while and then you remember it again and it hits you like a blow to the stomach.

the rest of the universe must be very dark.

imagine yourself floating so deep in space that you cannot even see your hands, and the blue and yellow and red stars spotted in all directions are the only assurance that you exist.

it's probably very quiet, too.

Good feelings:

-waking up to the sound of heavy rain
-crossing the finish line
-coming home after a long day
-peeling off cold, wet clothes and changing into dry ones
-being a part of an undefeated track team

(14-0, if you were curious)

When you are old and gray and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face among a crowd of stars.

-William Butler Yeats

I hope that this spring is bringing you all feelings of warmth and renewed hope. And not those of the allergens creeping up your nasal passages.

The Shins - "The Past and Pending"
