Crazy in Love

Need some love inspo? Try E.E. Cummings

(I CARRY YOUR HEART WITH ME)
by E.E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)


Celui Qui Tombe

This choreography by Yoann Bourgeois is STUNNING! Also, it reminds me of theatre school exercises where you have to imagine your ensemble is standing on a teeter totter or something and be "balanced" and nobody quite knows what to do. Except this one is real and beautiful.


Message in a Pocket

Unpaid labourers for Zara have slipped pleas help into the pockets of the clothes they are making. Obviously (I hope obviously) I am in NO WAY inspired by the use of unpaid labour, nor anything to do with this situation. Partially I was just looking for an excuse to make sure word spread about this so more people can make informed decisions about buying things from Zara. But also, let's admire the courage of those workers for putting the notes in the clothes.

Patrick Rothfuss

“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
-Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
