“Wine comes in at the mouth And love comes in at the eye; That’s all we shall know for truth Before we grow old and die. I lift the glass to my mouth, I look at you, and I sigh” – William Butler Yeats, A Drinking Song

“I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”
~Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and incredibly Close.
I spend a lot of time on here, writing about the little great things that bring colors to my otherwise monochromatic world. How about for a moment tonight, you sit with me and tell me all about the things that lights up your own world loudly?
