Andrei Tarkovsky (via tierradentro)
Tarkovsky has this knack for beautifully expressing my inner-most heart in ways I could never hope to achieve. His movies are the most tender, honest kind of poetry, and I always feel like a kinder, gentler, better person for watching them.
Thank you for your love and sacrifice, Andrei Arsenievich.

I thought about taking a picture of my burn wound ‘cause I know how much you like ladies with burn scars, but it’s on my elbow and I couldn’t get a picture and now it’s mostly healed. :(
That’s the saddest story I’ve ever heard :(. I bet it was super sweet though!
