sonder, n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.

My video SONDER | THE DICTIONARY OF OBSCURE SORROWS has been featured on Vimeo’s Staff Picks. Written, edited and narrated by John Koenig. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s awesome in fullscreen. 

"   There are two things we should always be 1. raw and 2. ready. When you are raw, you are always ready and when you are ready you usually realize that you are raw. Waiting for perfection is not an answer, one cannot say “I will be ready when I am perfect” because then you will never be ready, rather one must say “I am raw and I am ready just like this right now, how and who I am.   "
C. JoyBell C. (via observando)
"   I’d cut my soul into a million different pieces just to form a constellation to light your way home. I’d write love poems to the parts of yourself you can’t stand. I’d stand in the shadows of your heart and tell you I’m not afraid of your dark.   "
Andrea Gibson, Slip Your Mind (via larmoyante)


At first I thought you were a constellation. I drew a map of your stars and I had a revelation. You’re as beautiful as endless.
