Once I actually love an individual, and I’m taking a look at their chest and their collarbone, and I can see their respiration, and I can see their chest going out and in — it actually makes me ache. I simply find it irresistible a lot. There’s one thing so intimate and virtually sensual about chests, collarbones.

Then there was a time frame the place I actually had no concept what the fuck I used to be doing. I used to be having a full yearlong existential disaster. I modified issues in my life round, some individuals left my life, and within the final half-year, the change in who I’m has been so drastic. It’s type of loopy how briskly that may occur.
