So? What books did you guys get under the tree this morning?
Books I gave (just in case you’re curious) (because I highly recommend all of them): Tenth of December, The Goldfinch, the first three Dublin Murder Squad books, Happy All The Time, Chronology of Water, and LoTR.2 months ago • 30 notes
(1) This morning his mother texted me that he loved me, that he still loves me, that she loves me.
(2) I very honestly tried to avoid touching my text messages, but I wanted to make sure that I did not imagine this specific message where he talks about a time when he felt very alive.2 months ago • 2 notes
I spent a really long time in the bathtub, probably too long to be honest, my feet are so wrinkled they hurt, reading A Grief Observed. R recommended it last night and it’s so fitting it upsets me. I’m making a frozen pizza and smoking too much weed and watching old Christmas episodes of The Office. I’m going to go to bed early.2 months ago • 1 note
I should have been on a flight to North Carolina by now, waiting to meet my brother in the airport, but this morning he cancelled my flight so that I can attend K’s funeral. I am beside myself. The term is almost literal. I lose things that are attached to my body. I do things without thinking about them and think about things without doing them. The strangest things come out of my mouth. I’ve written this and deleted this so many times, but saying it or not saying it doesn’t make it any less real.2 months ago • 1 note
