  4. I love that second photo. It's absolutely stunning.

    Chuck Palahnuik is so great. I'm re-reading his short stories (Non-Fiction A Book of Extraordinary Truths) in my lunch breaks at the moment.

  13. I think I disagree with this quote. Some things are more perfect than you could have ever imagined them to be. And that's when life is really beautiful--when there's this unexpected sort of falling into place like it all just belongs. Real moments like that, however fleeting, are very powerful.

  14. @c ~ he has another quote that I think you would like, its about moments of perfection. I almost used that one instead. This one for me applies to those times when you naively fall in love with an idea before understanding the reality of the situation or person

  15. nice quote. in a way i know what C was talking about on above comment tho, i guess it all depends on the situation. true real moments could be beautiful and unexpected, it could hurt as well but they're all a part of the beauty of life. but anyway, if we see it from different point of view, isn't imagination what keeps our real life more wonderful?

  16. Never a truer word spoken: there's something addictive about the perfection you only get whilst imagining as well. Too much time spent in my own head!
