i want...

A lovely Fernweh reader Bethany (currently blog-less but leave her lots of kind comments anyway!) emailed this piece to us. It really resonated with me, and I think you'll like it too.


I want to turn cartwheels in the rain and stand on the roof and shout my favorite quote to the world. 

I want to get shivers from looking at the sky.
I want to inspire people to laugh because it's fun, and write even if they think they have nothing to say. 
I want midnight strolls to clear my head, and nights where heart-to-hearts seem the thing to do. 
I want sudden revelations and rainy days spent at antique shops and coffee houses.
I want the second to blend into minutes while I sit doing nothing and everything.
want to see something that makes me cry with wonder and makes me think about life and my existence on this spinning globe flying through infinity. 

But mostly I just want you.
