it is so very quiet when the wind dies down.

it is strange how the wind can be at times strong enough to topple you, and at others as gentle as the ripples it creates in the water

we walk the beaches when the tide is low, talking about the existence of soulmates, how best to roast marshmallows, our favorite vegetables, how to tell the difference between a male and a female king penguin, and other important inanities. the eternal sunshine spoils us, as we find sunsets that stretch interminably into the hours of 10 and 11 in the evening.

i have never had so much time to think.
as you can imagine, all-day hiking and sitting in a car are pretty thought-provoking activities.

tells a lot about a person, what occupies their mind during the longest hours of daylight. tells a lot about a person, when they choose to speak and when they choose to be silent. when they choose companionship, and when they choose to walk alone.

    always enjoy hearing what you like and think about the things I haphazardly compile here. I'm sitting in the Santiago airport drinking tea. the heat here is obliterating after the intense cold! feels like home.
