“Why did you invent poetry?” Dionysus asked Apollo, filling his goblet with wine once more. Apollo took a sip “Why did you invent wine?” Dionysus looked at his own goblet, thinking of the ruby liquid within it and answered thoughtfully, “It makes the world slightly sweeter and adds a little madness where there was none. But mostly, to be intoxicated and in love.” Apollo smiled, “Now you know why I crafted poetry. It makes the world a little easier to love.”

Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go.

Quote
There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.
Nicola Yoon, The Sun Is Also a Star

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.

have you been laughing enough? do you dream of them still? do you write? are you eating things that make you think of your childhood? are you taking walks? are you calling the people you love? did it get better? can you write from where you are? what inexplicable things make you sad? i’ll go first. elbow shaped pasta. the sound of a football game. a tweety bird shirt. the whole month of march. the whole month of may. half of september. i love you so much. i never want to dream of you again. are you drinking enough water?  im sorry. everyday feels like sunday. i am putting my ear to the floorboards. tell me if you need anything. i only want to dream of you. im sorry. they aren’t all inexplicable. i cry on airplanes now. do you cry? do you go on planes? are you stuck halfway? im sorry. what are five things you see? four things you hear? the bathroom vent, the football game, a door closing, someone walking outside. i miss you most in the places you’ve never been. i miss you most in the morning after i’ve had my coffee. i miss you most at night when i dream of you. i miss you most when i need a name so the grief makes sense. when do you miss me? im sorry. does it feel like sunday for you too?

"It seems to me, that if we love, we grieve. That's the deal. That's the pact. Grief and love are forever intertwined. Grief is the terrible reminder of the depths of our love and, like love, grief is non-negotiable."
