To be a Woman | Laura Marling

And I’m not dead yet, I could be soon
And all I want to do is put my arms around you
Little girl, it’s all so new
go little girl, you need to learn little girl
what it is to be a woman

I feel the most important thing i’ve learned from Virginia Woolf is that living deeply is just as important as living broadly.

Random strangers I have temporarily fallen in love with

- solitary boy sketching a marble statue of a sea goddess in the Louvre
- the guy working in Waterstones who told me “that’s a great book, enjoy it” when I was buying A Life’s Music
- boy with a skateboard and untidy blonde hair who sat next to me on the bus home
- boy I met in the woods when our dogs basically fell in love and wouldn’t part from each other and we stood and kind of awkwardly apologised
