I stand by everything I said that night.
i carry you in my heart
I’m in this awful place in my life right now, and I’m watching “Eat, Pray, Love” and this movie (as god-awful as it is) is just speaking to me, along with everything else I stand for.
Don’t even listen to me, I don’t know what I’m saying.
BUT SHE REALLY IS ME
I have been in love more times than one,
thank the Lord. Sometimes it was lasting
whether active or not. Sometimes
it was all but ephemeral, maybe only
an afternoon, but not less real for that.
They stay in my mind, these beautiful people,
or anyway beautiful people to me, of which
there are so many. You, and you, and you,
whom I had the fortune to meet, or maybe
missed. Love, love, love, it was the
core of my life, from which, of course, comes
the word for the heart. And, oh, have I mentioned
that some of them were men and some were women
and some — now carry my revelation with you —
were trees. Or places. Or music flying above
the names of their makers. Or clouds, or the sun
which was the first, and the best, the most
loyal for certain, who looked so faithfully into
my eyes, every morning. So I imagine
such love of the world — its fervency, its shining, its
innocence and hunger to give of itself — I imagine
this is how it began.

Aw thank you, love. This really was so sweet.
I’ll try to head to bed very soon!
..WAIT A MINUTE
Unless you’re on the West Coast, you have no reason to be up, either…
Things are different now.
Anonymous asked: On your tumblr url, why is your name spelled with two L's?
Because I like to emulate the art of the llama.
Don’t listen to me, I just got back from a long night. I have no idea what I’m saying.
