Take me back, please, to that one precious moment.
Feeling nostalgic for last summer’s adventures.
Recent events, through rose-colored glasses.
A place that won’t look quite the same after this moment.
Imagine what life looked like 20, 50, or maybe even 500 years ago.
Wear summer’s memories on your sleeves.
“The answer is always action.” A music video premiere and notes on overthinking.
We are it, that is all.
You don’t have to be defined by four tiny years of your life.
Prom, piercings, and other rites of passage.
