TENDRESSE (tenderness)

tomorrow i am beginning the journey home; all permutations of home.

after a long flight and a week in new york (my temporally first home), i am going back to the place where this was filmed, where many things began and many more will begin again and again.  a place where things can grow strong, where roots can be extended and boughs branch out and stretch to the sky and grow studier. 

more importantly, i’m coming home to her (my first home, in order of importance) after being apart for too long too long too long.  i’m coming home to turn promises into reality.  i’m coming home to re-lay foundations and fall in love with her again, every day for a whole summer.

this became a home, too, of sorts.  temporary, makeshift.  a well-settled room in a house where i will always be a guest no matter how long i stay.

but it’s time to leave.  to go back to her.  to go home.

changes

once, twice, in a difficult time, I have
failed you. No poetry corrects this. But

does it mean we don’t love? In the last poem
of you waking, I am any small bird, unnoticed,
above, watching; you are the traveler who

can’t know (there is fog, or no stars, a steep
dark) that the all but given up for impossible
next town is soon, soon. Come. We turn here.

— Carl Phillips

taking a hiatus

i think this is one of my favorite hedgehog songs, even though it’s pretty silly.  i couldn’t find a better recording anywhere and tumblr won’t let me upload music for some reason, but here are the lyrics (the song’s in english, but hard to hear):

I wanna tell my mom I love you so much whenever and wherever 

I wanna tell my friends I love you so much whenever and wherever 

I wanna tell my dog I love you so much whenever and wherever 

I wanna tell my girl I love you so much whenever and wherever 

I wanna tell my brothers I love you so much whenever and wherever 

I wanna tell my sisters I love you so much whenever and wherever 

I wanna tell everyone I love you.. 

it’s just such a happy song

“I have a million things to talk to you about. A million things we have to talk about. All I want in this world is you. I want to see you and talk. I want the two of us to begin everything from the beginning.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via susannathinks)
