east and west [original]
two little girls in a west german street chat with their grandparents in the window of their home in the eastern zone, separated only by a barbed wire barricade, august 14, 1961. this barbed wire is as yet provisional, but before long, the wall will be built here, 1961. soon the windows on the east side would be bricked up.

2013 has been a difficult year for me, with injuries and bad fortune. it has also been the year i learned that it is ok to mess up sometimes; it is a part of the learning process that will make me a better person. and the year i finally found my long lost twin brother. not the twin as in look-alike, but the one where you have the most things in common. he is the best friend i could ever ask for.
here’s a compilation of my best and popular posts of 2013. thank you all so much for every like, every reblog, every follow, every visit, every message, every support, and every encouragement. i hope you all have a great time whenever, wherever, and however you will be celebrating.
