The Beatrice Letters by Lemony Snicket
↳ letters from beatrice: (3/6)
"I have found you at last - but you’re not here. The shepherds told me that a man of your description (average height, not bald, fully clothed, with the initials L.S.) lived in the hills for a few months as "a brae-man," a phrase which here means "a man who lives in the hills." They say you rarely ventured out of a small cave - "as if you were waiting for someone," the eldest shepherd said, ringing his cowbell to call to his flock, and looking me very carefully in the eye. I traded them a ring on my finger, emblazoned with the initial of someone I believe you once knew, for a yak ride to see the cave for myself.
Your cave is a miserable place - drafty, bat-infested, and decorated with hideous wallpaper. Whatever belongings you brought here, you took them with you when you departed - the only item I have found is the scrap of paper on which I am writing this letter.”

hmmmm yeah, tumblr would celebrate Aviation Day, marking barely over a century of human flight when birds had been flying for millions of years before the Wright brothers. never forget.
Tumblr hereby recognizes the accomplishments of birds.

now and then
A number of years ago, while suffering from a mild case of ‘Scribe’s Fever’ (a form of neurasthenia common among the intelligentsia of that time), I had decided to spend the month of August in the spa town of Nebelsbad below the Alpine Sudetenwaltz — and had taken up rooms in the Grand Budapest — a picturesque, elaborate, and once widely celebrated established. I expect some of you will know it. It was off-season and, by that time, decidedly out-of-fashion; and it had already begun its descent into shabbiness and eventual demolition.
