Negotiating Christian relationships by way of snakes and signs: An ethnography of serpent-handling Christianity in Appalachia
People always say that it hurts at night and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken.

And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss him so much you don’t know what to do with your hands.
