I just got an e-mail from Tumblr saying that this blog is 1 year old today.
Has it really been that long?
D-Day June 6, 1944
Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France in the most famous and largest offensive in history. On the cliffs and beaches of Normandy, there still remain remnants of that great offensive as a tribute to those who made the final sacrifice to liberate France and end the war.
London felt too eternal, home that felt so big. It felt like one of those things that we would never really understand. But being gone so long, it feels so firmly ours, as if that city couldn’t belong to anyone else. It is a home that we knew we could never get back or return to, something special and fickle. But I did not expect the thirst that ran through those city streets.
Could never have summed that up better.
i desperately want to go back
