All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair. by Mitch AlbomThe Five People You Meet in Heaven (via feellng)

the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again

Like a river flows so surely to the sea
Oh my darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
So won’t you please take my hand, and take my whole life too
Cause I can’t help falling in love, in love with you

Can’t Help Falling in Love - Ingrid Michaelson

"Hello My Old Heart"- The Oh Hello’s

I once had a roommate for 15 hours.

I had just moved to Texas and was sleeping on a friends couch. After a few months of far too much free time, I found a job. I found friends. I found a place to live. As I was transitioning into being a full-time Texan, I met Josh. He had a beard and talked about living in Japan one day. He was moving in while I was moving on. On our one and only night under the same roof, we decided to share some beers and a story or two. 

He talked about playing music, and the joy it brought him. He suggested I listen to the band he was currently playing with, The Oh Hello’s. He walked me through themes and ideas of each song, sharing the heartbeat behind the harmonies. Over the past few years, these songs have accompanied almost every playlist made and remain some of my favorites. 

Last night, they played in the mountains of Colorado. I stood in line and looked up at the marquee. “The Oh Hello’s- SOLD OUT.” 1,200 people crammed into a theater to watch musical magic. After a few hugs and some quick catching up, I stood and watched Josh, my 15 hour roommate, play the part of rockstar. I wish I could describe the energy and passion that this talented group of people displayed. A true sight to see.

Of all of the bands and artists I have recommended over the years, these folks are at the top of the list. Take some time and explore their lyrics. Clap along in the car. Sing at the top of your lungs. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I think I just heard my heart break.

The naked female body is treated so weirdly in society. It’s like people are constantly begging to see it, but once they do, someone’s a hoe. by Lena Horne (via paarasytes)
