I want you to tell me about every person you’ve ever been in love with. Tell me why you loved them, then tell me why they loved you. Tell me about a day in your life you didn’t think you’d live through. Tell me what the word “home” means to you and tell me in a way that I’ll know your mother’s name just by the way you describe your bed room when you were 8. See, I wanna know the first time you felt the weight of hate and if that day still trembles beneath your bones. Do you prefer to play in puddles of rain or bounce in the bellies of snow? And if you were to build a snowman, would you rip two branches from a tree to build your snowman arms? Or would you leave the snowman armless for the sake of being harmless to the tree? And if you would, would you notice how that tree weeps for you because your snowman has no arms to hug you every time you kiss him on the cheek? Do you kiss your friends on the cheek? Do you sleep beside them when they’re sad, even if it makes your lover mad? Do you think that anger is a sincere emotion or just the timid motion of a fragile heart trying to beat away its pain? See, I wanna know what you think of your first name. And if you often lie awake at night and imagine your mother’s joy when she spoke it for the very first time. I want you tell me all the ways you’ve been unkind. Tell me all the ways you’ve been cruel. See, I wanna know more than what you do for a living. I wanna know how much of your life you spend just giving. And if you love yourself enough to also receive sometimes. I wanna know if you bleed sometimes through other people’s wounds.

These are my grandparents. They were high school sweethearts and they have been married for over 65 years.  Within the past year, my grandpa got sick and developed Alzheimer’s, so he lives in a nursing home now. My grandma goes to see him almost everyday, but each time she walks in he gets so surprised and excited and relieved by her presence. You can just hear the joy in his voice. It’s one of the saddest and most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced. I hope that one day I can find a marriage like theirs. They are the two most selfless people I know, and such a wonderful and pure example of love.


She really has so much potential to win an oscar. She just needs to do the right shit.

jamie ryan dee: The Eleanor Project


A new friend of mine, Eleanor Metzgre, went to the doctor today. She found out she is no longer in remission—her leukemia is back. So I’m starting a project for her—very similar to the Ronnie T. Project. For every note this post gets, the town I live in has promised to donate…
