The Age of Innocence

fernweh [feyrn-vey]
(noun) This wonderful, untranslatable German word describes the feeling of homesickness for a far away land, a place you have never visited. Do not confuse this with the english word, wanderlust; Fernweh is much more profound, it is the feeling of an unsatisfied urge to escape and discover new places, almost a sort of sadness. You miss a place you have never experienced, as opposed to lusting over it or desiring it like wanderlust. You are seeking freedom and self-discovery, but not a particular home. (via teaparties)

Here’s my advice: Have a little faith, and if that doesn’t work have a lot of mimosas.

Red is dead, blue is through
Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce
Or chartreuse
