When you get good news and you want to tell that one person ahh

dailyclassical:

In celebration of the month of June, we’ll be hearing a week-long set of music dedicated to June and to Summer as a whole. To set it off, here is the Barcarolle written for June from Tchaikovsky’s Les Saisons.

A Barcarolle was originally a type of folk song traditionally sung by the gondoliers of Venice, but in the 1800s it became popular as a musical form in which to compose, first as a number within operas in the early century, and later on as stand-alone music as well. In 1875 Tchaikovsky was commissioned to write twelve songs for solo piano, one for each month of the year and characteristic of that month, to be published in the French-language Russian music magazine Nouvelliste serially the next year, and his piece for June, a barcarolle, was immediately popular on debut.

Open up, it’s fine out. 

Tonight while walking on the waterfront in the angelic streets I suddenly wanted to tell you how wonderful I think you are. Please don’t dislike me. What is the mystery of the world? Nobody knows they’re angels.
Jack Kerouac, from a letter to Allen Ginsberg  (via violentwavesofemotion)

I think I am actually gonna go for it.

I miss the boy’s stupid cute face and just everything else too
We’re just friends

( I have reached new levels of patheticness )
But he is wonderful

Do you still perform autopsies on conversations you had lives ago?
