"Je vadrouille à travers les jours comme une putain dans un monde sans trottoir." - Emil Cioran
We just have to open ourselves up to the truth: we will hurt each other, often. Life is crazy beautiful, but it is crazy and sometimes spins out of control. And that’s okay. That’s how it should be. It’s okay to lose the grip, to slip a little. Because we all do and maybe that makes it easier to forgive one another — people will disappoint you and wrong you, but they will also defend you and fight for you and bowl you over with kindness. We are all such radiant fuckups — we have to remember this and love one another for it. And even when it seems impossible, we have to be good to one another, to extend an open hand, to try to bring the light back in to illuminate the darkness.
Remain the kind rogue spirit that makes the world a vibrant and unusual place to exist in. Take it easy, but take it.

Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go.
