“It’s Easter weekend here, and as home of all things eggs, bunnies, and tulips…it’s the place to be. Did you know that “Paas” (the egg-dye brand) is the Dutch word for Easter? We walked by a bakery today that had amazing easter breads in the window, baked and glazed to look like little lambs and chickens. This made tears spring to my eyes because it made me miss my family at Easter time! But I blinked them back because the Dutch do not cry in the street.”—Letter home from The Netherlands, Mary Miller (March 22, 2008)
“What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.
It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.””—Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis Jr., on his new song “To The Top”
