Mi sento come se la mia vita fosse sparsa qua e là. Come se ci fossero tutti questi pezzetti di carta e qualcuno avesse acceso il ventilatore.
Ma quando parlo con te mi sento come se il ventilatore venisse spento per un po’. Come se le cose potessero avere davvero un senso.
Tu mi rimetti insieme, ed è una cosa bellissima.

Sono innamorato di te, e so che l'amore non è che un grido nel vuoto, e so che l'oblio è inevitabile, e che siamo tutti dannati e che verrà un giorno in cui tutti i nostri sforzi saranno ridotti in polvere, e so che il sole inghiottirá l'unica terra che avremo mai, e sono innamorato di te.

Con i suoi occhi che mi guardavano come se davvero ci fosse qualcosa di bello da vedere in me.

I’ve seen a couple different drinks for cough relief, like turmeric tea or “golden milk”, but this is what my grandma showed my mom and my mom showed me.
I think it started out as JUST ginger and milk (traditional ginger tea), that’s why we call it Jengibre (Ginger), but it’s become a lot more powerful since then! I had a pretty nasty sounding cough last Sunday, and it went away before I even finished the cup! It came back in the morning when I woke up, and then after one more cup it went away for good! k here it is: 

INGREDIENTS:

- A chunk of ginger (should have included a picture… It’s about a quarter of the palm of my hand?)
- 3 stars of anise
- 3 or 4 cinnamon chips (or 2 sticks)
- 1 ½ tsp Holy Basil
- 1 ½ tsp Nettle leaf
- 1 tsp Hyssop herb
- 1 tsp Honey
- 5 or 7 Cloves (I like it spicy… My sister only adds like 3)
- a pinch of Turmeric
- 1 cup Milk
- ¼ cup water

INSTRUCTIONS:
(its not word for word as the picture because I wrote it in my book as I was making it and I had to pay attention to the stove!)

- Crush the cinnamon, anise, and cloves together, then set aside. 
- Peel the ginger, cut it into small pieces.
- Start boiling the ¼ cup of water, then add the ginger as it starts to boil. Press on the ginger to get the juices out!
- Combine leaf ingredients together, put them in a tea bag or small tea infuser 
- After about a minute or two, add the cinnamon, anise, and cloves. Stir. 
- After a minute or two after that, add the teabag/infuser with the herbs. If you’re using a tea bag, press down on it occasionally for potency. 
- It should be hella boiling now and it looks pretty cool. Add the milk, and stir. At this point, you can add more cinnamon, cloves, or ginger to taste. 
- Add the turmeric. 
- When the milk is hot, take it off the heat. Put a sifter over a cup and pour everything in. Squeeze the tea bag to get all the liquid out. Then discard everything except for the liquid in the cup. 
- add honey or brown sugar to your liking! Honey will help with the cough, but I like it pretty sweet so I add both!
