1. "Try to write in a directly emotional way, instead of being too subtle or oblique. Don’t be afraid of your material or your past. Be afraid of wasting any more time obsessing about how you look and how people see you. Be afraid of not getting your writing done.

    (I spent a morning hiking here this weekend, for the first time since I was a kid. it was even more lovely and breathtaking than I remembered).

     

  3. fleet foxes // ragged wood

    the world is alive now, in and outside our home
    you run through the forest, settle before the sun
    darling, I can barely remember you beside me
    you should come back home, back on your own now
