"It was one of those days when it’s a minute away from snowing and there’s this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And that’s the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember and I need to remember. Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in."American Beauty (1999)
Wanderlust. Wanderlust is one of my favorite words. I was born with it. It runs through my veins in waves, powerful, yet almost haunting at times when I don't act on it. I'm a lover of all things mysterious, exciting and beautiful, which obviously fuels it. Maybe I should act on that urge to explore a little more often; even a trip down the coast or east to the mountains would calm it a little- cool that fire for a bit.
