Awed is really the only word with which to describe watching Misty Copeland dance. Copeland was one of six children raised in San Pedro, California by a single mother, Sylvia DelaCerna. “My mom was struggling at the time and her priority was to keep us fed and alive, it wasn’t getting me to ballet class,” Copeland says of the time her family lived in a motel room. Copeland won the Los Angeles Music Center Spotlight award and attended the San Francisco Ballet’s summer intensive program, after which the school offered her a position as a full time student.

"I’ve written a song for my wife."

Fred was married 72 years to his wife. He wrote a song for her when he saw a songwriting contest advertised in the paper, and he couldn’t resist writing one for her. She had just passed a month earlier.
They had been together since the 30′s.
96 years old, Fred couldn’t play an instrument or sing, so he simply mailed in his lyrics, attaching his story in the letter. When the studio holding the contest saw his song and read his letter, they decided to record it for him and play the song for him to hear.

Grab some tissues before you watch this.

Now that’s real love… cried

some people love so hard, man this was sad. 

Sobbing

Cried, this is so fucking beautiful.

god damn, tears everywhere.
 seriously, so freaking sweet.

I’m a sucker for a good love story.

ombuddha:

The essence of our experience is change. Change is incessant. Moment by moment life flows by and it is never the same. Perpetual alternation is the essence of the perceptual universe. A thought springs up in your head and half a second later, it is gone. In comes another one, and that is gone too. A sound strikes your ears, and then silence. Open your eyes and the world pours in, blink and it is gone too. People come into your life and they leave again. Friends go, relatives die. Your fortunes go up, and they go down. Sometimes you win and just as often you lose. It is incessant: change, change, change.

You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.
