… to all of you guys. Also, it’s my best friend Melissa's fault that I'm back. Bless her.

I just miss you, in a quite simple desperate human way. Oh my dear, I can’t be clever and stand-offish with you: I love you too much for that. Too truly. You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art. But you have broken down my defences. And I don’t really resent it.
Vita Sackville West, from a letter to Virginia Woolf dated 21 January 1926. (via zipitrudolph)
