The Handled With Care






















If you knew how much trouble the universe went to for us to be here, now, standing in front of each other, you'd know we're going to have to be careful.

Plankton and plants and canals, a hundred suns, a thousand sailing ships, ten thousand civilizations, a million, million, million first kisses from all our mothers and fathers.

We owe it to them, to be careful.

So true.
I love how you manage to say the most beautiful and too often over looked ideas in such a simple way.

wow this really makes you stop and think of all the lives before that are the chain of who we are. The unwanted pregnancies, the lost loves, the broken hearts, the wild romances, the life long partners all these things are there somewhere - love it thank you

the universe exists because things crashed together and exploded. the landscape was sculpted by raging rivers that cut into mountains and by volcanos that poured their burning hearts out over everything. and we are here because people rushed, longing and desperate, into each other. soemtimes we have to throw caution to the wild winds and just jump the fuck in.

No we dont owe it to be carefull we actually owe it to be reckless. To love reckless and listen to your heart instead of thinking with your head.
