sun makes me think like a laura

But a friend of mine says it's good to hear
That you believe in love even if set in fear
well I'll hold you there brother and set you straight
I wont make believe that love is frail
And willing to break

goodbye england--laura marling 

i know more about love today than i have before.
a little bit more,
and this time a little bit more about what it is instead of what it isn't.
and you know,
i don't think it's a frail thing,
i think it's a sturdy thing
maybe a stubborn thing sometimes
but always kind
always changing
but never very fragile.
because we are fragile
or maybe we're just too careful.
but love is strong
because it still exists
it persists
and the reason it breaks is because a person decides to break.
because love doesn't have a mind of it's own,
we do. 
it's never love's fault. love is always good.

that's what i think about it today.

and it is 63 degrees outside and people are laying on blankets
i received a surprise scholarship from the art history department
i'm going to china to teach english to children this fall
jorg spells cruisin' "kroesin" in his head now because of me
i'm swinging with my little brother in my own backyard this afternoon,
and you know there really is no place like home
an anonymous sweetheart colored me a picture and wrote me a poem and left it on my door
and i would like to say thank you to the void
and my heart feels bittersweet but mostly i am happy
because magic ones really exist
and i found one
and he's so magic that i can't keep him
but that's a lucky thing
because if he would let me keep him he wouldn't be so good.

and i really like sentence fragments and lacks of punctuation and starting sentences with conjunctions.
just like laura cottrell.
and she's beautiful.
and she thinks right.

you look really good today
go outside.
