People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering. -St. Augustine

I either lose sleep for you or because of you.

How do you tell someone
you saw something
that reminded you of them
when truly you saw nothing at all?
We are all occupied walls,
ice and rusted steel
covering what was
and what remains
despite our dearest
efforts to let go.

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.

T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets (via observando)

Magical pond that changes color with the weather 

Kent Shiraishi took these photos of the Blue Pond, a beautiful body of water in Hokkaido, Japan. Blue Pond receives so much attention because of its shimmering blue hue, which changes into a lovely green in certain light. This pond owes its colors to aluminium hydroxide, a mineral which reflects blue light.

Never ignore someone who loves you and cares about you. ‘Cause one day you may realize you lost the moon while counting stars.

Yes, my mind was wandering. I wished I were there with someone who could bring peace to my heart someone with whom I could spend a little time without being afraid that i would lose him the next day. With that reassurance, the time would pass more slowly. We could be silent for a while because we’d know we had the rest of our lives together for conversation. I wouldn’t have to worry about serious matters, about difficult decisions and hard words.
