sunlight and sincere apologies. love making and deep sleep. complete silence and music blasting on long car rides. bubbling beverages and still ice cold water. silver and gold. knowing smiles and genuine curiosity. whispered intimacies and dancing hard. hearts opening and knowing when it’s time to say goodbye. friends who remember and strangers who care. stories that never end and a few words that say it all. these are just a few of my favorite things, the ones that bring smiles undeniably. i got lost lately and am just now finding my way home. it’s been an exquisitely lonely road filled with such tender sweetnesses, i am reminded why I care at all. over and over and over again, grateful always for the wonder and moments of glee that make their way through. home here and breathing deeply, this is me, emily joy rosen
