In two weeks, I will be living in New Zealand. Words cannot describe how excited I am for this adventure.
Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne
"I have lived
in my body
and still need
maps and lights
to find my way
to how I feel."
- Michelle K., Body of Maps. (via iounios)
"With clenched teeth and in front of your eyes which I see even in broad daylight, I can bear anything: Distance, anguish, worry, lack of letters. I can bear anything with you in my heart, and if I once wrote that the days without your letters were terrible, then it was not correct, they were only terribly heavy, the ship was heavy, its draught was terribly deep, nevertheless it still sailed on your side."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Milena (Schocken, 1990)
