You won’t do our things with another girl, or say the same things, will you?
- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (via larmoyante)
I thought of texting you
“good morning, I can’t sleep”
and then I remembered
that you are on a journey
which I am not a part of
and that’s okay

Remembering Nelson Mandela
The renowned world leader and civil rights icon passed away today at the age of 95.
Mandela himself was reticent to indulge in the myth-making that surrounded him:
"In real life we deal not with gods, but with ordinary humans like ourselves: men and women who are full of contradictions, who are stable and fickle, strong and weak, famous and infamous," he wrote in a letter to his wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, from prison in 1979.
But his lifetime of action, and transformation from being branded a terrorist and imprisoned by his opponents to a universally-applauded hero for not just his homeland of South Africa, but the whole world, makes him more than one of those “ordinary humans.”
