I know several SOMEONES exactly like this….!!!1 
A thousand moments that I had just taken for granted ― mostly because I had assumed that there would be a thousand more.

 Morgan Matson, Second Chance Summer (via larmoyante)

Been there.  Done that.  Thought I had the thousand moments.  I did not.  But the “hurly gurly” of life, meant I was too busy surviving, doing things, to pay attention to the moments….   And now they are all gone.

The greatest evil is physical pain.

Saint Augustine 

I’m feeling you, Augustine.

(via amyburvall)

Perhaps St Augustine had never seen mental or spiritual or other kinds of pain.  Trust me:  Pain is pain!  Physical pain, at least there are drugs for, to help a little….

I’d like to paint you, but there are no colors…

Frida Kahlo (via nataliekjewelry)

I know a FEW Ladies… For whom…

And no artist is, either.
