MY ART IS ABOUT FREEDOM
ABOUT UPSETTING YOU TO THE POINT OF BLISS
ABOUT TENDER AGGRESSION
NAKED EYES AND EXPOSED LIES
ABOUT EMOTIONAL EXTREMES WITH SUBTLENESS
MY ART IS ABOUT THE PAIN I FEEL
AND THE BEAUTY YOU SEE IN THAT
MY ART WANTS TO SLAM CONTRADICTION IN YOUR FACE
TO EPITOMIZE THE COEXISTENCE OF YOU AND I
MY ART IS MERELY US
YOU AND I
ENTANGLED IN SOME UNKNOWN POSITION
FIGHTING, LOVING, LAUGHING, CRYING
LIVING
THE WHOLE JOURNEY THROUGH

Do you ever wonder whether people would like you more or less if they could see inside you? …I always wonder about that. If people could see me the way I see myself—if they could live in my memories—would anyone, anyone, love me
John Green (via psych-facts)
The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.

We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.

In the Name of God

The Ramnamis are a small hindu sect from central India. As leather-workers they are on the lowest rung of the caste-system, because they process the skins of dead cows and are considered ‘untouchable’. Traditionally this status meant that they were prevented from entering Hindu temples along with the other castes. So, in an expression of their own proud religious convictions, the Ramnamis began the practice of tattooing the name of the god, (Ram) all over their faces and bodies. In this way they wished to show that everyone is equal in the eyes of God and that they have no need of temples to confess their faith. Today the Ramnami tradition continues with its own strand of Hindu belief and outdoor prayer areas, and its members hold their heads high in the knowledge of their devotion to their faith.
