Almost every time I go to this cafe in the late afternoon, I see the couple sitting at the same window table. They are both attractive, middle aged, and well dressed. The one really noticeable thing about them is the woman’s auburn red hair. I’m always pleased to see them because they appear to be genuinely content with each other’s company. They are almost always reading magazines or newspapers and drinking something. They rarely speak to each other but there is a peace around them, a balance you can almost physically see in certain couples. When one has finished with their reading material they automatically hand it to their partner. The other takes it without a word and lays it down on the seat between them. The person without the magazine drinks their coffee or looks out the window until the other is finished reading. Then they talk for a brief time, sometimes laughing quietly, always paying full attention to what is being said. They are like an island of tranquility in the middle of all the human rush. Seeing them, watching them, invariably makes me feel a little better. Jonathan Carroll (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y) Tuesday Oct 10 @ 11:23pm

It’s easy to love someone when they’re happy. What’s hard is loving someone when they’re crying on the bathroom floor at 2am because everything came crashing down at once.

I sit before flowers

hoping they will train me in the art 
of opening up.

I stand on mountain tops believing 
that avalanches will teach me to let go.

I know 

but I am here to learn.

Fall in love with his eyes,
Because when he’s sad he will not smile,
But you’ll see love in his eyes,
As you get older looks will disappear,
He’ll loose those blonde locks, and good physique,
But those eyes, they’ll remain the same
So when you fall in love make sure it’s with his eyes because true love is in the depths of his eyes

You don’t get it. I barely understood it. I crave the kind of partner that will tell me when I’m wrong. Someone who will take the time to say to me ‘This is going to be a sucky conversation because it’s going to be uncomfortable but if I don’t tell you, I can’t be certain anyone will and I want you to grow continuously into a superb human being.’ Do you get it? Don’t you want someone who wants you to keep growing? Mya Wright  (via soaphie) Tuesday Oct 10 @ 02:56pm
