A little smallness.

Before we sleep we go out again into the night.  We walk up the beach under the stars.  And when we are tired of walking, we lie flat on the sand under a bowl of stars.  We feel stretched, expanded to take in their compass.  They pour into us until we are filled with stars, up to the brim.

This is what one thirsts for, I realize, after the smallness of the day, of work, of details, of intimacy–even of communication, one thirsts for the magnitude and universality of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide.

Excerpt from Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

It is good to feel small sometimes.

P.S.  Read it.  I know you’ll like it.

My favorite.

This was my favorite day because I was at this concert with my favorite person and (amazingly) got to hear my favorite singer.

The song starts in the middle, so you’ll just have to buy it to hear the real deal.

XO, me

Happy heart day.
