I’ve been on the road with my sister for the past two weeks in search of beautiful places. We’ve gone all over Oregon and Northern California, seeing some of the most amazing lakes, mountains, rivers, beaches, and forests. The world is so full of beauty. Allow nature to fill you up when you feel loneliness or fear. We are all so lucky to live on such a beautiful planet.
I want to do this with my friends
Do this with me and I’ll love you forever and always
“I will not be your “sometimes”.”
“A lot of parents will do anything for their kids except let them be themselves”
Emma. Still as fabulous and flawless as she has been all these years.
“I want your stupid fucking sense of humour making me laugh at 4am when I have to be up at 6.”
“I was a drifter. I crossed glaciers, slept in wild gardens planted by time. The roads weren’t paths, they were scars on the face of the earth - directionless and stunning, aged and gorgeous, like you, after all the troubled years. We survived that long night of youth, and we prayed for no more darkness and no more days, no more time, just long dreams of running away. We were from nothing, going nowhere, stranded on a black rock island. The whole world was foreign, and we were forgiven, shining forever. We were strangers everywhere. Everything was new and beautiful, and we could see it all as it was, without longing for elsewhere. Nothing familiar, nothing ordinary, nothing broken, rusted, or fading. The days were bright and mute, overflowing, like cups full of rising light. And home was the foreign moon, impossibly far. Home was the county inside you, the grass that would one day grow from you. Home was everywhere, nowhere, an incomplete picture, a poem, half-erased, woven into the palms of our hands.”

My friends all lined up on the roof, just minutes before Seattle’s annual firework show.
this reminds me of the night my friends and i yelled from the rooftops of downtown Anchorage this summer
"Who’s the better player?"
"I am. He’s too scared to sacrifice his pieces. He hasn’t learned that sometimes you need to lose two to gain three."
"What’s the most important thing your dad has ever taught you?"
"If someone hurts your feelings, don’t worry, because that person will also have a turn to get their feelings hurt. And also, you should never undermine people or make them feel unimportant. And also, if you drop out of school, he won’t deal with you anymore."
“Live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it.”
