Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson - 'John Green',  'David Levithan' This book totally sunk my emotional battleship, and I mean that in the very best way possible.

Because this book gets it, gets what it is we are all striving for--not love, not exactly, though yes, love too--but appreciation. That we all want to be seen, understood, that we want to be acknowledged for who we are. And we want to feel like someone else appreciates that.

Didn't really expect to be crying over my orange juice this morning, but I was, and I was so happy for it.
