Hello darlings. I just wanted to say sorry for the lack of commenting. I've been preparing for a trip for Florida, in which I leave tomorrow, so I will most likely be unable to reply to your comments and visit your blogs. But, I have a special treat for you guys upon my return!

dreaming away.

"The weight of the world
Is love
Under the burden
Of solitude
Under the burden
Of dissatisfaction

The weight
The weight we carry
Is love.

Who can deny?
In dreams
It touches
The body,
In thought
A miracle,
Its imagination
Till born
In human
Looks out of the heart
Burning with purity--
For the burden of life
Is love."

~Allan Ginsberg

"'There is no use trying,' said Alice, 'One can't believe impossible things.'
'I dare say you haven't had much practice,' said the queen, 'When I was your age, I always did it for a half hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'"
~Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

"I would like to have my picture taken so that I can give it to the boy that sits next to me."
Isn't that the sweetest thing ever?

With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold
And the stars grow old."

"True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy."

"Flawed is her vision, her awkwardness. Her face has blemished, she hardly brushes her hair. She is not conventionally pretty, although to me she is beautiful."

"Without a heart I can never really know what it would be like to love someone, or ever really understand trashy novels."
~Wizard of Oz

"Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous; and it pricks like thorn."
~William Shakespeare

"I have learned not to worry about love;
But to honor its coming with all my heart."
~Alice Walker

I have worn so many masks in my life that quite often,

I find myself forgetting who I really am.

Sometimes I feel life is a game and I play with myself and others.

More than anything, I long to collect all the pieces of my life

and put the puzzle back together again,

but I know it's impossible and

would make my life boring.

I possess a spectrum of personalities because my life has been

interrupted so many times that my experiences are never linear.

They are diverse and disconnected, and, well,
light #17 by Ta .
sometimes it makes me sad.
portrait #3 by Ta .
I have a mask for every occasion.

Rarely do I remove it and relax my face.

My words

Today is the first day of spring!!!!

Here is a poem by Angela (who no doubt is one of my biggest inspirations)
I just thought it was so fitting for today and describes my mood perfectly.

I am ready for spring,

I am ready for tiny light dresses made out of chiffon.

I am ready for jean shorts and daisy chains in my hair.

I am ready to sit outside with bare feet with my friends.
I am ready for hot days and warm nights and sleeping with only the sheets on the bed.

I am ready for sunglasses and freckled noses.
I am ready for bare legs and swimsuit tops.
I am ready for sunshine and warm breeze.
I am ready for laying in tall grass and looking at the stars.

I am ready for midnight swims and gin and tonics at 3am.

I am ready for music and dust and camp outs.

I am ready for summer.

My current spring love affairs are with:

these white rimmed Ray Ban wayfarers seen on MK Olsen.
