Romantics

"I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be. 
I love her and that is the beginning of everything."
{F. Scott Fitzgerald}

I love literature -- I love words that are beautifully written, thoughts that are beautifully expressed, stories that are beautifully told. I love literature that speaks to my heart; the compilation of words that were unknowingly stolen from the depths of my mind. 

For myself, colors are innately synonymous to feelings and emotions. A beautiful flush of a blushing pink immediately causes me to think romantics and young but beautiful love that blossoms in such an undeniable way. I thought F. Scott Fitzgerald captured this love so perfectly...a love that sees through the walls that others cannot permeate; a love that strikes its recipient as something she never would have fathomed deserving; a love that feels so lucky and rare, so once in a lifetime; a love that rooted itself from the beauty within and grew to the beauty without; a love that is the beginning of everything. 

Romantics. Yes, I'm one too.

Besos,
RC
