I will be moving into my own apartment come September! It has two bedrooms so I can have my own little painting studio in the second room. I can’t wait to scour the flohmarkts for beautiful alt furniture and to have delicate vases around with beautiful flowers in. It will be meine wohnung, my little home where I can listen to Ray Charles in the morning and peacefully read in the night.
“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for. It doesn’t interest me how old you are, I want to know if you are willing to risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine. It doesn’t interest me where you live or how rich you are, I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and be sweet to the ones you love. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly like the company you keep in the empty moments of your life.”—Jon Blais (via rainydaysandblankets)
