greatest compliment



here is a friend I'll always love

Saturday, October 30, 2010


sometimes travelling makes me sad. Moving, moving, always an urge to find somewhere new and shake off inertia and forget who I was. But the price is so high, because you always leave something behind and your life starts to just become distant nostalgic memories. Did those places ever really exist? And those people, will I ever see them again, just the way they were? If you understand, this is dedicated to you. and Coco.

sara hennessy


I went to a comedy show alone. It might be one of the nicest thing I've ever done to myself. I felt happy, entertained, relaxed and proud of my own company. Anyhoo, the all-women lineup was full of pretty funny people, and this comic made me laugh the most. Her name is Sara Hennessy.
