“A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again.”

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
It’s the first of May and a beautiful summer-y day. Feeling very content today, despite looming exams and a little pile of work; it’s good to feel like this.
“But, I know if I’m ever cold and lonely, I can wrap myself up in all those memories and I will be content.”
Teri Hatcher as Susan Delfino, Desperate Housewives
Sunday was the airing of the final Desperate Housewives episode ever, which was kind of sad having watched all eight series from 2004 until now. I wasn’t quite satisfied with the ending – it was all too happily ever after, but the ideas and concepts were good.
“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.”
L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Had the most lovely afternoon in the sunshine, back at home for the weekend, having a picnic with my family in Coombe Abbey. Just felt so wonderfully content (probably because I avoided all thoughts of my final exam next week!) The Wizard of Oz is a classic t0o.
Also, it is my three month blogging anniversary and have published 71 posts! Happy days.
