quote of however-long-I-feel-like:

Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things - trees and grass and sun and moon and stars.

Suppose we have.

On your own is actually really fun.

Have I ever told you that I love walking? No? Well I do. For me it is very empowering. Don't know why, but it is. Barefoot in bluegrass is the best. Unfortunately all we have in Florida is cra(b/p)grass. Anyway. My dad dropped me off in downtown Dallas a couple of times last week. The first, I just walked and walked and walked. Both the library and museum were closed, but that did not deter me. I love big cities. Being surrounded on all sides with elaborate skyscrapers is the best.

not only
an original copy of the Declaration of Independence printed in 1776, but an original, "Shakespeare's First Folio" printed in 1623. I won't lie, I did end up paying $1.68 for his services. They had a store on the first level selling books that just weren't going to make it. I picked up Arthur of Britain by, E.K. Chambers, and Henry VI by, Shakespeare.

Just don't tell my parents, alright?
