To clarify, yes I am embarrassed about writing a story about a Taylor Swift song.
There’s a lot of the 1989, Red, Speak Now and Taylor Swift in this new brand shining Taylor, those eras will not die, they will forever live with her and her past, current and future Reputation.

and all there is
Love with you

The whole thing reminds me of a Joan Didion quote that I feel like I will later on be embarrassed I even put in here.
