quiet memories that i treasure

  • laying with Daph in the grass in the spring, in my green hoodie
  • standing on the terrace behind the art museum at night with D, watching the glittering lights on the river, smelling the fresh air
  • people-watching with C on the steps of the duomo in Florence
  • reading on the old leather couch in our canal apartment, sunlight streaming in and listening to piano music Alexandra Strelisky
  • eating cacio e pepe with a glass of local Riesling in the courtyard of the Church of St. James in Brno
  • swimming at Chryssi during my lunch break, eating a PB&J in the water
  • Christmas mornings as a kid with my family, eating opera fudge and cookies for breakfast and opening presents on the living...
