“What if one happens to be possessed of a heart that can’t be trusted—? What if the heart, for its own unfathomable reasons, leads one willfully and in a cloud of unspeakable radiance away from health, domesticity, civic responsibility and strong social connections and all the blandly-held common virtues and instead straight towards a beautiful flare of ruin, self-immolation, disaster?”― Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Everyone IN NY should read this

Everyone who wants to come to NY should read this

Everyone should read this if you’re thinking about NY in any way, shape or form.

Good to know for when I live there next year! :)

This is fantastic, definitely want a summer trip!

Is there such a thing as feeling homesick for somewhere you’ve only visited?

cheesequake There’s a word for it in Welsh:  Hiraeth (Welsh)

A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. http://betterthanenglish.com/hiraeth-welsh/

“Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. … It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world’s greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see.”― Ann Patchett, Bel Canto

This is me.
