Cartwheels on the Oregon Coast & the Tillamook Forest Through My Breath

 “Las mujeres se presentan francas y risueñas,
 comprendiendo muy bien
 que no es 
preciso ser mojigatas para ser virtuosas” 
― Ignacio Manuel AltamiranoClemencia



At night too, 
she puzzled the mystery of her desperate need of kindness.
As other girls prayed for handsomeness in a lover, 
or for wealth, or for power, or for poetry, she had prayed fervently: 
let him be kind.
— Anaïs Nin, ASpy in the House of Love
