“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.
Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.
Neil Young - Old Man
Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness
See I remember we were driving, driving in your car

sufjan stevens - casimir pulaski day
Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
I said, “hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side.”

California Dreamin’ | The Mamas & the Papas
The Fugees - Killing Me Softly
The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel
Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence
Queen / Killer Queen
