When you feel homesick, just look up. Because the moon is the same wherever you go.

The Goldfinch (Part II, Chapter 5, Section XIV) by Donna Tartt (via almaluminescent)

Homesickness is just a state of mind for me. I’m always missing someone or someplace or something. I’m always trying to get back to some kind of imaginary somewhere. My life has been one long longing.

my mom taught me the therapeutic power of cleaning. open all the windows. throw out the old. wipe down the entire house. burn some incense. roast some coffee. then rest. that way the tears from last night don’t feel as heavy.
