You know, they straightened out the Mississippi River in places, to make room for houses and livable acreage. Occasionally the river floods these places. “Floods” is the word they use, but in fact it is not flooding; it is remembering. Remembering where it used to be. All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was. Writers are like that: remembering where we were, what valley we ran through, what the banks were like, the light that was there and the route back to our original place. It is emotional memory — what the nerves and the skin remember as well as how it appeared. And a rush of imagination if is our “flooding.”

There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.

- Judith McNaught, Remember When  (via seulray)

Hello, my name is Lauren Nicole Tims.
I enjoy many things, music and makeup being two.
My heart resides in Florida currently, with my Airman.
I can be a bit complicated, and so I am thankful for those who choose to share their lives with me.
Basically, I am me and I always will be.
So how do you do?
