“We die to each other daily.
What we know of other people
Is only our memory of the moments
During which we knew them. And they have changed since then.
To pretend that they and we are the same
Is a useful and convenient social convention
Which must sometimes broken. We must also remember
That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.”
i will live my life as a lobsterman’s wife
on an island in the blue bay
he will take care of me, he will smell like the sea
and close to my heart he’ll always stay
I’ve been humming this all day:)

I just ordered this book on Amazon (instead of iBooks) purposely so I wouldn’t get side tracked from studying for finals but I am SO excited to start reading it! My friend recommended this to me and it sounds like an inspiring read.
“I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.”
