perspectives of yesteryear

Dearest Queen Pammy,

Just wanted to share these quotes with you by Apollinaire from my recent literary explorations...

MARCH 8, 1910
"What strange times we are living in! We are surrounded by ugliness on every side. We allow horrible buses to disfigure the streets of Paris without protest, and our houses are the ugliest possible... Yet, there is not a young girl into town with her mother who does not carry on herself a whole museum; her ring is signed Such-and-such, her tooled leather book cover is signed So-and-so, her belt is signed This-and-That and etc. Our time will have a style of its own when people attach less importance to signatures; then even buses will be graceful. I recognize, however, that there is more than a mere promise in the general effort of our artists to endow us with a style. We may in fact, have a style... "without knowing it," The way Moliere's M Jourdain spoke prose."

"I am not afraid to say it: between the bizarre and the boring I always prefer the bizarre."

scarlett bailey is fascinating.

she has a sound Mind...
It actually listens.

...stolen from brook d'leau's blog...

"Good relationships balance over time. This means that at any particular point in time, the relationship may appear quite unbalanced: One partner may be more nurturing; one may be more needy; one may be providing all the financial support, etc. But if both partners are loving, understanding, giving, dedicated and flexible, then the relationship can handle all kinds of ups and downs, and still be strong, exciting and, yes, romantic. The best relationships are well balanced. Not a delicate balance; not a static balance- but a dynamic ever-changing balance."
-Gregory Godek

...i figure that he stole it from somewhere else.
because that's all blogging is these days. right?

quiet theft.

i believer her.

"It's great to argue with someone and know that there's a real commitment
underneath it all - it's not about slamming doors and walking away,
but about working things out."
***beautiful video...that live performance is just gripping.

kudos to her for still living.
i am learning that everything is temporary.

to live fruitful lives, we always have to be able to let go.

i feel this.


no one. and nothing is exempt.

you are in my prayers.
i am so so so sorry.
and i feel ridiculous for even saying that..but i am.
i am crying for a country.
and that solves nothing.

seconds of attention up against centuries of neglect.

pray for haiti.

maNNNnnnN call ME!

"okay...let me make this clear.

no one is ever going to book you because

of how you style. people will book

you because of who you are."
