“When I was 12 years old, a missionary saw me and suggested that I learn how to do flower arrangements. I said, ‘Dudes don’t do things like flower arrangements’. The missionary then said, ‘In life, there’s a difference between choosing not to do something because you don’t know it and being knowledgeable about something and then choosing not to do it.’ My view completely changed after he said this. So I learned how to do flower arrangements as well as some other things, but in the end I ended up choosing to run my own flower shop. 30 years have passed since that moment.”
“제가 12살 때였는데, 선교사가 저보고 꽃을 배우라고 권하더라구요. 그래서 제가 ‘사내새끼가 무슨 꽃을 배워요.’라고 했어요. 그랬더니 선교사가 ‘살면서 모르고 안 하는 것과 알고 안 하는 것은 다르다’라고 말하더라구요. 그 말에 제가 완전히 넘어갔어요. 그래서 그 후 꽃을 배웠는데, 다른 것도 좀 하다가 결국 꽃집 운영을 선택했어요. 그렇게 30년이 흘렀죠.”

Do you still feel younger than you thought you would by now
Or, darling, have you started feeling old yet?
Don’t worry, I’m sure that you’re still breaking hearts
With the efficiency that only youth can harness

i couldve been your girl

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

this american life 

the break-up podcast, part 2

everything about this story speaks to me on a very deep level. and it makes me unspeakably happy that my bff sent this to me first. 

i wanted to say i was done wallowing, but i’m guess i’m not.
