雨But who can say what's best? That's why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much.

Hey guys, I just wanted to let y’all know that I’m going to be taking a tumblr hiatus for the next few weeks, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see any activity from me for a little while. I’ll miss you all dearly; please don’t forget about me.
I’m trying to be on my best behavior, but you have to understand— I’m always standing on the edge of something bad. And sometimes someone like you can make me look the other way, so that I don’t know how close I am to falling over. But I always end up turning my head. Always. I always walk off that edge. And it’s shit I deal with every day, and it’s shit that’s not going away any time soon.

Each time he took a walk, he felt as though he were leaving himself behind, and by giving himself up to the movement of the streets, by reducing himself to a seeing eye, he was able to escape the obligation to think, and this, more than anything else, brought him a measure of peace, a salutary emptiness within. By wandering aimlessly, all places became equal and it no longer mattered where he was. On his best walks he was able to feel that he was nowhere. And this, finally was all he ever asked of things: to be nowhere.
