[M]iscarriage is death without ceremony. No funeral, no name. No one would ever tell you, for example, if your mother died, that mother-death is actually quite common, hang in there honey, you’ll find another mother. The angst of miscarriage lingers, maybe even multiplies, because you’re the only one who knew the deceased, and the way you knew them was theoretical, fleeting.

Fifteen years ago I felt the same passion I feel today, but I had very little opportunity. I had to hustle hard and go hungry. I had to eat sardines and figure out how to get gas money.

...if it's just a moment when you can reverse a movement, an emotion, a downward spiral, when you can quiet something or still something and just allow it to change and allow the real spirit rise up in someone, that feels great. I know I'm not saving the world, but something in what I've learned how to do or the stories that I've tried to tell, they're some sort of representation of how life is...
Apples and oranges. I'm going to say some days cats, some days dogs. Depends on the cats and dogs you meet.
You know, it's always great to sit and have a great sandwich. Life is good when you have a good sandwich.
We live on the cusp of death thinking that it won't be us
If I can be an example of gettin' sober, then I can be an example of startin' over.
Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.
I might not be the same, but that's not important. No freedom 'til we're equal - damn right I support it
If someone believed me they would be as in love with you as I am
— The xx
you’ll be given love
you’ll be taken care of
you’ll be given love
you have to trust it
maybe not from the sources
you have poured yours
maybe not from the directions
you are staring at
twist your head around
it’s all around you
all is full of love
all around you
