players only love you
when they're playing

i'm tawny. i'm twenty-three and from los angeles but i live in new york city now. i'm a writer. i like the national a lot, and often spend my days wondering how matt berninger's voice exists.

I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. I am grateful for the gifts of intelligence, love, wonder and laughter. You can’t say it wasn’t interesting. My lifetime’s memories are what I have brought home from the trip. I will require them for eternity no more than that little souvenir of the Eiffel Tower I brought home from Paris.
