a misplaced new yorker's notes on life in milan

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”

- C.S. Lewis

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. - Plato”

llamas of the day

llamas of the day

You have no idea how hard I’ve looked
for a gift to bring you.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold to
the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like
taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my
soul because you already have these.

So I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me. 

“three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
