❝Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.

"When we were young, Tito and I wanted to conquer the world,
and that’s what we did.”

i avui encara ets el que un dia vas ser i la teva vida és eterna, i et coneixerem amb fotos de calaix, aquells que no et vam poder veure.

Descansi en pau, Francesc “Tito” Vilanova (1968-2014)

We feel bad. We didn’t live up to the expectations this season. We have to be self-critical and start all over next season.

gerardeulofeus:

..When you reach the peak
Look at the river and the valley you left behind
And this heart that now holds
The bitter sorrow of your farewell.. (x)

I want to change my theme. I’m not sure I’m ready for this. This could have unexpected consequences

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
  • books
  • unexpected kindness in strangers
  • the rest of the world to travel
  • languages to learn
  • animals to take care of
  • volunteer work to do
  • the power of a good night’s rest
  • the changing of seasons
  • infinite things to learn
  • billions of people to meet and possibly love
  • billions of people who might love you back

A boost of optimism!

Camp Nou’s tribute to Tito Vilanova.

“That’s what I do: look for spaces. All day. I’m always looking. All day, all day. Here? No. There? No. People who haven’t played don’t always realize how hard that is. Space, space, space. It’s like being on the PlayStation. I think shit, the defender’s here, play it there. I see the space and pass. That’s what I do.”
