Someone once told me a story about long term relationships. To think of them as a continent to explore. I could spend a lifetime backpacking through Africa, and I would still never know all there is to know about that continent. To stay the course, to stay intentional, to stay curious and connected – that’s the heart of it. But it’s so easy to lose track of the trail, to get tired, to want to give up, or to want a new adventure. It can be so easy to lose sight of the goodness and mystery within the person sitting right in front of you.

I don’t know when I started believing this, but I used to think if you’re a good woman you can’t be messy, and you can’t be mad…I’ve been learning that neither of those two things is true. This is that moment when you want to call someone up and give them a piece of your mind, but you don’t because you know that no good will come of it.

I’ve learned sometimes it is enough to let yourself feel the anger…It doesn’t mean that you have to always act on it. Anger can actually bring a searing clarity, and moving through that anger can eventually bring peace.

…I’m discovering what it means to be a woman…It’s not necessarily the things I was taught. It’s the things I’m learning on my own. The good, the bad and the ugly is all in there. To be strong and to be weak, and to be scared and to be bold, and to be angry and to forgive, and to be broken and to break open, and break through, and to be hurt and to do the hard work to heal. That’s the type of woman I want to be.

John Paul White - What’s So

Bu çok sihirli bir şey. Videoların altında bir sürü yorum var seslerinin nasıl buluştuğunu, uyuştuğunu, birbirlerinin ruh ikizi değil de ses ikizi olduğunu yazan….. Fakat bu cümlelerin dışında bir şeyler onlar. Hani sevdiceğinle burun burna yatarsın… Nefesleriniz karışır. Olay soluk alıp vermek değil de birbirine karışmak, bir olmaktır… O an işte onların şarkıları…Belki çok abarttım ama anladınız siz :)
