“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
— Mitsugi Saotome
he is schroeder: gentle, patient, thoughtful, creative, intuitive, a talented chef, articulate francophile, lover of beautiful things.
at the end of this week, he's on his way to The Big Smoke: he could study anything, really, but he has his heart set on following in his brother's footsteps.
and after all these years of connectedness, it's so hard to separate. i'm stealing moments, hiding his piano melodies in my heart, lost for words: how can a brother and a sister fly the coop simultaneously?
trusting the universe: that they will make their way in the world, and the earth shall continue to turn.
