hi my name is alyssa


"I love water. I couldn’t live anywhere really without water near by… I prefer rivers and lakes and I am going to build a house for myself near Garda in Italy. I love the tranquility of water, the reflections and the colors and the peace. I couldn’t live beside the sea for long: it is too restless, always saying something like ‘come in, come in.’ It is irritating." (Vivien Leigh, 1960)

!!!!! I can’t even speak

!!!!! I can’t even speak

Farewells can be shattering, but returns are surely worse. Solid flesh can never live up to the bright shadow cast by its absence. Time and distance blur the edges; then suddenly the beloved has arrived, and it’s noon with its merciless light, and every spot and pore and wrinkle and bristle stands clear.

— Margaret Atwood, from The Blind Assassin  (via violentwavesofemotion)
