Light breaks where no sun shines

Light breaks where no sun shines;
Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart
Push in their tides;
And, broken ghosts with glowworms in their heads,
The things of light
File through the flesh where no flesh decks the bones.

A candle in the thighs
Warms youth and seed and burns the seeds of age;
Where no seed stirs,
The fruit of man unwrinkles in the stars,
Bright as a fig;
Where no wax is, the candle shows its hairs.

Dawn breaks behind the eyes;
From poles of skull and toe the windy blood
Slides like a sea;
Nor fenced, nor staked, the gushers of the sky
Spout to the rod
Divining in a smile the oil of tears.

Night in the sockets rounds,
Like some pitch moon, the limit of the globes;
Day lights the bone;
Where no cold is, the skinning gales unpin
The winter's robes;
The film of spring is hanging from the lids.

Light breaks on secret lots,
On tips of thought where thoughts smell in the rain;
When logics die,
The secret of the soil grows through the eye,
And blood jumps in the sun;
Above the waste allotments the dawn halts.

- Light Breaks Where No Sun Shines, Dylan Thomas

Somebody's boring me. I think it's me.

C'est Cranium.

I was listening to Crawdaddy Simone while drawing this, so, you can imagine where the 'inspiration' came from.
I have way too much free time.

It's not a night light, it's a glow-in-the-dark Batman - it's retro.

Effy Stonem.


I will cut you in half.

Faris Badwan alias Rotter.

Yeah, count in fives.
And if another number confronts me,
I will cut you in half.

Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

Maybe it's just me, but, I prefer Art like this, whimsical, yet, it manages to capture emotions, people and scenes in a realistic way.

I always thought I'd like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I'd like it to say "figment."

Balenciaga Resort '10

I would wear this beauty with a pair of leather wedge boots, preferably in cream, with, perhaps, the addition of shredded tights.

I love that necklace, though.

I am a deeply superficial person.

Oh, don't touch me, please, I cannot stand your lies.

I'm bored, let's get high.

I love the tale of Ulysses.

Well, anyone who loves this song should read Homer's epic, The Odyssey, as well as James Joyce's Ulysses.

I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.

Vanessa Bruno Fall '09- RTW

I can only think in fragments.

Absence never makes the heart grow fonder.
It only makes it grow stronger.

I'm not vicious really. I consider myself to be kindhearted. I love my mum.

Meet Sid.
He's a bona fide ass.
I love him.

Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

This time, perhaps, this time, it will happen.
It will.
I will continue to live on the hope that it will.
After all, I am an optimistic fool.

1,000 years from now there will be no guys and no girls, just wankers. Sounds great to me.- Trainspotting.

"Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a f**king big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of f**king fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing f**king junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, f**ked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin? "

- Renton, Trainspotting.

They'll never miss a beat.

Party, U.K. style.
I'd give anything to be with these two.
I wonder what the photographer's been doing to get these two in such a state.

She follows Andromeda on her journey to the stars.

"No, you are not worthy of the love which I have devoted to you. I knew all along that the prize I had set my life on was not worth the winning; that I was a fool, with fond fancies, too, bartering away my all of truth and ardour against your little feeble remnant of love. I will bargain no more: I withdraw."
Vanity Fair.

Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.

I don't believe in time. I never can and never will.
The time can be whatever I want it to be, I don't need to conform to what the world views as 'time'. I suppose, if you think about it, life is a dream. But, perhaps not an empty one. I don't know how to fill the empty spaces, though.

Perhaps, the only thing I believe in, is day and night.
Especially when the stars shine down.

Nikon analog camera
Polaroid camera
