god, i fell so madly in love with people again today. not just people- but art and words and life. i left home- called a friend. he fetched me and we drove out of this town and into the middle of the city. i love it there. the city is alive. it has a pumping heartbeat, and you can feel it. we walked around. we ate at an eastern food bazaar. we gave food to a homeless man. the man refused to accept our food until he’d shaken our hands and learned our names. it really broke my heart, but in the best way possible. we went to an art gallery. i asked one of the artists where his inspiration comes from. he told me it comes from somewhere so deep that he can’t name it. he told me all he can do is paint, that it’s all he has. that since he was born he knew his destiny was to be an artist and that there’s nothing else he could possibly do. it broke my heart all over again. we went to an african market. we had no money but a rasta man told us to come in his shop anyway, just so that he could say hi and wish us a good day. fuck, man. i love passionate people. i love artists. i love people that openly bleed for a living. i love book stores and antique shops and art galleries and side streets and cultures and human diversity. i love offering people that look sad cigarettes. i love how surprised people are at something as simple as a stranger offering you something for nothing in return. i have never felt as in sync to human emotion before. i have never felt things this intensely before. i want to immerse myself in art and emotion. i want to wrap my arms around every goddamn passionate person in this city. people can be so beautiful in their mannerisms. it really makes my heart ache.
I just typed “hashbrown” instead of “hashtag” and it took me like 5 minutes to realise what was wrong with my message.
You have not been truly wasted until you light a cigarette backwards
Lauren does this sober
Do you just ever love a person so much
But not in a sexual/romantic way
You just love them so much it’s not even a friendship
It’s like they’re your sibling or a platonic soul mate
You don’t want to make out with them or do sexual things
You just want to keep them close to you and protect them and be their friend for life
