we do not grow absolutely, chronologically.
we grow sometimes in one dimension,
and not in another; unevenly.
we grow partially. we are relative.
we are mature in one realm, childish in another.
the past, the present, and future mingle
and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present.
we are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

No single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.

I used to work at a cafe, and one of our sandwitches was called the Anais Nin.

Studying English in college, my love for her has only grown. Not in understanding who she is, but in loving what she is.

Love this quote. xo
