Welcome to Tuesday's Takeaways!
1. For those of you whose love is in this moment:
"Tell me, tell me how you love me,
tell me how to fall
in the seconds
in the spaces
not a breath or a moment wasted
in the quiet, quiet morning
of our curving, endless
-Sophie Shnaidman, In This Moment
2. For those of you who are in need of some self love:
"Monday morning, and I'm thinking about the flowers that grow on my windowsills,
how somebody told me that my basil plant would not grow but now it has, all because I loved it-
that the basil plant now grows on my windowsill, as well as in my heart."
-Maya Garcia, The Lung Flowers
3. For those of you whose love is unconditional:
"I love your storms
Just as much as I love your sunshine.
I love you when you're withered
Just as much as I love you when you're blooming.
So come to me in any condition
because the love I have for you has none."
-Samantha Merzel, Unconditional Love
4. For those of you who had to say goodbye this year to someone you love:
"And when we say goodbye
your taste lingers,
on our lips
in our noses
and stains the lines of our hands."
-Joshua Avin, My Dad and Modest Mouse
5. For those of you celebrating the love of friendship:
"Friendship is care, love, truth, and honesty.
A relationship so real
it becomes intangible.
The other by your side
at all times."
-Oriya Abed, Friendship
