On Sunday's I usually find myself spending my morning's catching up on poetry blogs, reading my book and indulging in the written word of any form. As much as visual imagery is a part of my inspiration beautiful prose's are just as much a part of it. Last Sunday I found myself in a rather melancholy mood and with the rainy weather upon us I was forced to stay inside and sulk in my bed all day. Ok, maybe not so much forced as I chose to wallow in the melancholia like I do at times. It reminds me of how deeply I can feel sometimes and the sadness can be unbelievably inspiring. I thought that I would share with you all this Sunday some recent words I've added to my quote book that inspired a photo that I took last Sunday in the shower that you will see at the end. Oh, and before I forget I was interviewed by the extremely talented stylist and designer Alaska Mangialetto of Jacked Fashion. Be sure to check it out here, you might learn some things about me you didn't know.
"I cross my heart that when I said you were wonderful you were."
"I hope you never make another loving heart break the way you broke mine that second time."
"I don't want to be your entire world, no.
I would be happy just to be your morning coffee,
your hanging car keys, your wallet.
Something seemingly insignificant,
but if lost throws off your entire day."
"Do not fall in love with people like me.
We will take you to museums & parks & monuments
& kiss you in every beautiful place so that you
can never go back to them without tasting
us like blood in your mouth."
- Jean-Luc Godard
"To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial.
To be known and not loved is our greatest fear.
But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God.
It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness,
and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us."
- Tim Keller
"You're scared that if you don't break other people's hearts, someone will break yours.
That is your biggest fear: love."
"Maybe the sun will explode & the moon will fly out of orbit.
Maybe I will burn so fastthere won't even be time
for me to think of you once more."
-Clementine von Rodics, Out of Orbit
"I am a mausoleum, filled with relics of mood swings, depression, sadness and regret."
