For the first time in my life, I’m experiencing a healthy, casual sexual relationship that is completely on my own terms. It’s wonderful, and I don’t want to mess it up by being either too flippant and detached or overly emotional.
“I want to hear raucous music, to see faces, to brush against bodies, to drink fiery Benedictine. Beautiful women and handsome men arouse fierce desires in me. I want to dance. I want drugs. I want to know perverse people, to be intimate with them. I never look at naive faces. I want to bite into life, and to be torn by it.”—Henry and June by Anais Nin (via thechocolatebrigade)
500 posts and new followers…thank you! I’m actually quite surprised this taken off so well. Anywho, if you have any questions or requests I’d love to hear them, and I’d also love to hear about you, so please don’t be shy.
“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”—Maurice Sendak (via i-before-e-)
