A place belongs forever ...

“A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.” 
— Joan Didion

  2. Me too - holy. That's so stunning. You always have such amazing quotes on your blog! Must remember this. I know that I feel this way about so many places in my past. Nostalgia is one of the most powerful emotions, don't you think?

  3. I was just telling my better half the other day how I think so much of my life is determined by nostalgia. The music I listen to, the books I read, the places I visit, the movies I watch. That's probably why this quote stood out so much to me!
