    Distance is a powerful elixir. These days, space holds relatively little meaning to me. I feel my interests are omnipresent and invasive, yet just out of reach.

    I believe distance doesn't matter as long as you truly care for that person. Yes it gets lonely but that's why being with them is so rewarding.
