Real friendship is when your friend comes over to your house and then you both just take a nap.
I can talk about my father in ordinary conversation without feeling more than the slightest pang of loss. But if I permit myself to remember him closely—his sense of humor, say, or his passionate egalitarianism—the facade crumbles and I want to weep because he is gone. There is no question that language can almost free us of feeling. Perhaps that is one of its functions—to let us consider the world without in the process becoming entirely overwhelmed by feeling. If so, then the invention of language is simultaneously a blessing and a curse.
always stop for a drink
we don’t believe in flavor.
And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise. (x)
