I do not trust people who don’t love themselves and yet tell me, ‘I love you.’ There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.
Maya Angelou (via feellng)
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking.
– Maya Angelou, from Letter To My Daughter (via violentwavesofemotion)

A siren went
off in my brain
the moment you
began drawing my
boundaries for me.

You will not set up
partitions across
my soul. No one will.
It is as adamant on
freedom as you are
on its brutal capture.

To you, I was just another project to fix.
A metaphor to write about.
A quest to conquer.
It was never about love,
it was about you having
a sense of purpose.

Dodo, they wanted to possess me. 
How do they not know that they don’t own me?
They can’t keep me.

I am not theirs to own.

Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.

This matters for myriad reasons. 
Uncle George and everything he means to us
The powerhouse that is Paul Simon and his songwriting
The allusions to Glee & all that came with that
But ultimately?
It’s always about the words and the harmonies.

Always.

Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.

There’s nothing like just apple picking in the Fall, the first cold New York weather hitting you, the fashion sense steaming up, and the fresh apple cider and donuts.

I LOVE THE FALL.

And hats and scarves and knee socks and wearing tights for the first time in months and when…
