avasgal:

"I’ve messed up my life and it’s too late to change that. These walks are just an escape. When I walk alone, I think about my life and the past…I am not satisfied with the way I made my life. New York has everything, but what use is that to me? I might just as well live on a deserted island. I’m restless everywhere. I always have been…if only I knew where to go."

-Greta Garbo, 1977
