Today is my best friend's birthday. She is a whopping twenty one years old, and I've known her for eleven of them, since we were young and naive, chasing ice cream vans and making up songs, having sleep-overs and writing messages on ceilings with a torch, running around Europe on school trips and summer holidays, and wondering what life held for us; I hope it holds only wonderful things for you, DL, because that's all you deserve.

In Flight Of Night

"The human mind cannot bear very much blankness - where we do not know, we invent and what we invent reflects our fears of what we do not know..."

It has been a year to the day that I first laid eyes on the boy I was going to fall in love with.
He makes me feel like flying.
