In the end I think I’ve learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I’ve even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don’t travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.

She leaves me little coded messages hidden between the cracks in the side walk. They say things like, “ we need more sugar” or “you forgot to kiss me goodnight” and “why haven’t you texted?”  Truth is, it’s just echoes of what used to be and what never was. Because I used to go places sometimes, places deep inside my mind where our life was more than ordinary. We were Extraordinary Lovers, we were September and June, we were The Love That Lasts Forever.  I smile to think back on all those dreams of yesterday because they’ve faded now, nothing more than hollow echos, and notes left in cracks.  It’s all just whitewashed history. I deleted everything I could.  I like a clean break.

We’re all traveling through time, together, everyday of our lives… All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable life. The truth is, I now don’t travel back at all, not even for a day. I just try to live everyday as if I have deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it… As if it was the full, final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.

happy birthday 🎂 lee minhyuk, november 3rd, 1993

to my favourite boy in the world, sunshine, puppy, comedian, singer, rapper, actor, artiste, photographer, painter, dancer, extraordinaire, constellation, chef, archer, the extraordinary love of my ordinary life, entrepreneur, masseuse, shoulder-scavenger, consultant, brother, son, homo sapien

i hope today will be phenomenal for you because you deserve nothing less than joy and revelation not just for today but for every other day and every day after this one

and although my incompetent ass couldn’t get anything to work to get things done for you i love you !!!!!!!

you are beautiful for existing and for being there for me, for us and for trying your absolute best in everything you do, for remaining optimistic through trial and whatever else that’s tried to get you down, for lifting my spirits when i’m not feeling up to anything, for being an integrated, sewn part of my life, for being an invaluable member of mufasa x, for being you, for not sugarcoating your words and actions, for supporting the others like you do, for having never forgotten what matters most to you, for dedicating an exponential amount of time, energy and effort into mufasa x’s (your) music and choreographies and promotions and ideas and concepts and anything and everything that happens behind the scenes that fans aren’t aware of

debuting wasn’t a walk in the park, it hasn’t even been remotely easy since debut but you remain so vigilant and diligent and gracious and i cannot fathom why i’d been given the chance to live in the same time frame as you but i am disgustingly in love with you

💕💖💓💝💞💗🌸🍇🐶💫✨☀️🌈🏹

happy 24th, angel
