Hey! Fancy seeing you here. (That's my best pick-up line.* It disappoints everyone.)

Some things about me: I have an affinity for lower-case letters, analog photography, and natural curls. I enjoy short runs on windy beaches, the taste of spiced chai, and existentially fraught free throws. My favorite photographs are black and white (though I occasionally make an exception), my favorite painters are romanticists, my favorite cinematographers shoot with film. I take my tea hot, sweet and British (much like my celebrity gossip). I also really really really enjoy parenthetical statements.

Favorite books
: Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Mere Christianity, The Catcher in the Rye, The Illustrated Man, The Magician King, The Fault in Our Stars, Bitterblue

Favorite artists: Saul Leiter, William Bougeureau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vincent Van Gogh, Sally Mann, Richard Avedon, Reed Morano (dp), Rene Magritte

Favorite quotes:

—What a treacherous thing, to believe that a person is more than a person. (Paper Towns, John Green)

—He died after a lengthy battle with human consciousness, a victim - as you will be - of the universe’s need to make and unmake all that is possible. (TFIOS, John Green)

—Human beings, all over the earth, have this curious idea that they ought to behave a certain way, and can’t really get rid of it. (C.S. Lewis)

—I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity. (C.S. Lewis)

—It was just that she had the need to tell him something honest, something honest and unhappy, because cheerful lies tonight were too depressing and too sharp, turning in on her like pins. (Bitterblue, Kristin Cashore)

On second thought: I actually have another one. Hey baby, if I were an enzyme I'd be DNA helicase so I could unzip your genes.

Tea Time with Old Friends, or, All the Wrong Questions
I had been wondering for some time why she hadn't come to visit, and why her house was tinged with a sour kind of quiet. (AN: Rating based on implication, though nothing is stated explicitly. Safe for the kiddies.)

Tangerine reviews
The sun crashed into the Pacific last night, Colorado streets washed clean in tangerine tides. I wonder how long I will live and how soon I will be an only child.
