east of east st. louis
and the wind is making speeches
and the rain sounds like a round of applause

vintage clothing. plaid. Gemütlichkeit. wool socks. christoph waltz. bbc radio 6. dorothy parker. scotland. cocktails. british sea power. ivy. tweed. very long reads. the scent of pipe tobacco. terriers. road trips. barbara stanwyck. fog.
not necessarily in that order.

"Destroying is better than creating when we’re not creating those few, truly necessary things. If we can’t have everything, true perfection is nothingness. And how do you benefit from stringing together the tattered pieces of your life? Your vague memories, the faces of people that you were never able to love…"
