“The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea” – Isak Dinesen
We are blessed to call “grandparents” those who treasure us unconditionally and beyond comprehension; who love fiercely and generously as if that’s a given. I’ve lost the last of mine a few days ago, but only in life. For everything they’ve helped me become has made them eternal. Rest in peace and with all my love.
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
