nashira: ((Women) Red Lipped Beauty - Liv Tyler)
[personal profile] nashira
Like all great cities, Amsterdam brims with contradiction. Maps of the Red Light District are dominated by a church, Swans swim up the canal while on the banks of that canal, a woman stands half naked in front of a glass door waiting for customers. Amsterdam is both the city that hid Anne Frank and the city that gave her up. An ancient city perpetually experiencing new construction, A city full of boats that separate you from water and contain water. These same contradictions are in all of us; they’re in me, at least. And so I forgot that I had been awake for 30 hours and kept walking. Grateful to be a little boat, full of water, still floating. —From I’m Not Going Down: Thoughts from Amsterdam; a video from John Green from the Vlogbrothers.

"...you don't know what you have got until it's gone. People change. The world changes. And sooner or later you lose people you care about. If you don't mind some advice from someone who doesn't know much about families. I can tell you this: Don't take yours for granted. It might feel like all of them will always be there. But they won't."
