My darling. I’m waiting for you. How long is the day in the dark? Or a week? The fire is gone, and I’m horribly cold. I really should drag myself outside but then there’d be the sun. I’m afraid I waste the light on the paintings, not writing these words. We die. We die rich with lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we’ve entered and swum up like rivers. Fears we’ve hidden in - like this wretched cave. I want all this marked on my body. Where the real countries are. Not boundaries drawn on maps with the names of powerful men. I know you’ll come carry me out to the Palace of Winds. That’s what I’ve wanted: to walk in such a place with you. With friends, on an earth without maps. The lamp has gone out and I’m writing in the darkness.

The Iconic Final Scene Of “The English Patient”,1996,Directed By Anthony Minghella

podcasts are amazing!!! they allow me to fully immerse into the story without overwhelming me like anything visual does. It’s such a relief. I cant watch anything unless im in the cinema, so im extremely happy that i can have podcasts at least.

Also . I can better recognize and understand emotions in podcasts than in books . The modulation of the voice and the fact that podcasts are written so that they would be listened, not read , makes them better than audiobooks. Books arent nearly as overwhelming as any movie or tv series, but after some time i have to put them off so that i wouldnt feel so trapped.

I still love books though, nothing can take that aways from me
