Four years ago I was suffering from a severe case of broken heart / broken pride. So I had to run away and I took @wbkruhackebeiltoni and we flew to Tenerife, to spend the holidays on a rooftop, work on our book and get drunk and lost in the streets of Santa Cruz.
While I felt like I was made of numbly aching nothingness and the thinnest layer of hypersensitive skin, the grace of this world came onto me in its entire force and it made me break apart even more, but in a most beautiful way.
We had christmas dinner (gin and olives) on the sunset rooftop, we walked through warm, sparkling streets full of dancing people on new years eve, kissed beautiful strangers and then cried into their pillows, we wrote thousands of words and lived through, spoiled and threw away years of our lives in just a couple of weeks.
I guess those are the moments - when we are completely filled with pain and happiness at the same time - that we are the purest and fullest (victorious, pathetic human beings) we could ever be... And that is hard to take. It’s horrific, awful, absolutely perfect.
I think it has not been long, since I finally, fully got over the heartbreak.
And I will never get over the beauty and importance of those days. .
