First love is blurry and fast and tingly and perfectly imperfect. The reckless longing for that someone, their touch and words always at the forefront of your thoughts. Like living in a daydream. First love is what we measure every love against after. Delighting in the new screen through which we see the world, our new sensitivities, our belief in beautiful, irreplaceable moments where there could never be any acknowledgement that it might end. That you wouldn’t always feel that way. We stumbled across the trailer for an upcoming movie, Drake Doremus’ Like Crazy, and as it brought back those tingles we made a mental reminder to watch for its release. Look here.
‘I thought I understood it. But I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it, the eagerness of it, the idea of it. Of you and me.’ – Like Crazy
