The reading corner. And writing corner. Yes that is J.K. Rowling's new book on the table. And also a polka dotted glass. 


I got a letter from my brother today, so I was writing him back. And writing a little blip about tonight, which is below, and also has the longest run-on sentence ever.



Incase you can't read it, I will type it out below.



You know when you have that swelling feeling, right in your chest, in the hallow between ribs, and it's like the whole feeling of the night has collected there and is forming into a dew drop and it's just holding there and is on the verge of dripping and then it drops and your swelling heart blooms fire down, down, down your whole chest into your belly and your throat clenches, tears form in the backs of your eyes and you feel like crying just because you're here, here in this collected dew drop of experience. 

And you just have to take a breath, inhale, and know that you're here, this is you, your life. 

That blooming fire is within you. 

and then you exhale and that dew drop is gone, its spread so far down, down, down, that now your stomach is empty, and you know you'll just be chasing that swelling feeling forever, as long as you live.

Yes that first paragraph is seriously only one sentence.
