You know that scene in ROTJ when Luke asks Leia if she remembers her mother, and Leia replies that she was “very beautiful, kind, but… sad.” Those words often echo in my mind when I look at Diego. Despite his famously sunny personality, his eyes carry a tinge of sadness. Always beautiful, of course, often kind and compassionate, yes… but there’s some sorrow in that gaze, too. It’s just a small part of what makes him so utterly bewitching, I think, at least to me. There is nothing simple about this man.
Hello. I just wanted to tell you that A Perfect Day For Jaredfish was such a joy to read. Like a slow drip strained out through a funnel, fragrant tea in a delicate cup, warm and lovely. Beautiful in the way it's so pleasantly mundane, taking in all the simple ways that make life all the more precious. It's silly but there I was reading it and thinking that, yes, the world can be cruel, but it can be sweet too, if you let it.
