forest, spring flower by jadda tsui
“i have a theory,
that perhaps all stories are love stories
in one way or another
because all stories come from the heart,
and sometimes i feel like i’m wrong,
but i desperately want to be right. ”
Playlist to listen along with, before and/or after reading through the book:
