Nix the pixie

Emma Watson has announced that she will be growing her hair out, and to that I say, Thank God.

I mean, her pixie cut is cute and all, but she has a tendency to look so boyish. This is a photo of her before she cut is all off. Although you can't really see her hair here, if you look at a photo of her now and a photo of her then, you can see that the cut has even affected the way her face looks.

I don't know maybe it's just me. What do you think?

Evergreen Love

This is one of the sweetest love notes I have ever read. It was written to photographer Nirrimi by her boyfriend. It absolutely melts my heart. If only I had a boy that would write me little notes like this.

My beautiful girl,
You are asleep beside me, and despite the deep rumbles and grating gears of the passing vehicles on the highway outside our window, I feel so content, listening to your breathing, and the wind in the tall backyard tree, and now it is silent of all cars and trucks and road noise, and now it is nicer than it was before. With you I have learnt the most about myself, and consequently the world, and with you I am calmest, clearest, happiest, realest, warmest, and all other superlatives that could be used to describe just how right things are with you. I have said it a few times but I'm not sure I've ever truly been able to express just how much I appreciate you, your presence in my life, all of the things I have learnt from you both directly and indirectly. The world will change and change often, sometimes dramatically, but I know our love will always remain. We are the strongest of the strong, and I will never leave your side. Thank you for all that you have blessed me with. I am indebted to you.
Yours for all time, and timelessness,

Kiss me with your blood red lips

Firstly, hello. Secondly, I apologize for being so incredibly busy. It has been a little under a month (thankfully, not a full month, as that would be a legitimate marker of my negligence) since my last blog post. I'm sure it seems as if I either got incredibly bored with blogging or dropped off the face of the earth all together, but I assure you that I have not done either of those things. I really wanted to take a break to get everything in my life in order before I began blogging again.

Anyway, I have recently discovered a wonderful musician named Misty Miller and I thought that I would share a video of her performing her song "Remember" for the Burberry Aucoustic Series. She is only sixteen years old, but her voice is marvelous and incredibly sweet sounding. Also, I just made a YouTube page for my blog. I doubt that I personally will be posting videos anytime soon, but I have several of my favorite videos favorited (ha) if you want to take a look.

Art exists for the sake of its beauty alone.

I'm not sure if I entirely agree with the idea, but it does give satisfaction to those who feel intimidated by art and the almost inevitable analysis that comes along with it. The eye can appreciate art just for its beauty, not for its underlying meaning (If there really is one.) You don't have to philosophize, you don't have to try to determine what the artist was feeling when he created the piece or even what the motivation for it was. You merely have to be able to register what is aesthetically pleasing to you.

I personally love the analysis- literature, art, what have you. How do you all feel? Are you aesthetists?

If I could have it back, all the time that we wasted I'd only waste it again

Whenever you think of Valentine's Day, you think of peacocks. Just kidding. But seriously, this is a beautiful picture.

Happy V-Day.

I shouldn't turn my back on sweet smelling Blackberry Stone

I am in love with these pictures. Seriously. in. love. I have featured the photographer Natasha before with a photo of the day post, but I just needed to post more. There are seriously so many wonderful ones on her flickr. Go see!
