XVII I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. . . . No te amo como si fueras rosa de sal, topacio o flecha de claveles que propagan el fuego: te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras, secretamente, entre la sombra y el alma. Te amo como la planta que no florece y lleva dentro de sí, escondida, la luz de aquellas flores, y gracias a tu amor vive oscuro en mi cuerpo el apretado aroma que ascendió de la tierra. Te amo sin saber como, ni cuándo, ni de donde, te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo: así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera, sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres, tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía, tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño. by Pablo Neruda #love #pabloneruda #sonnets #sonnet #poetry #poetryislove

Françoise Hardy . . Francoise Hardy at Brands Hatch during the filming John Frankenheimer’s 1966 racing drama Grand Prix. Photograph: Victor Blackman/Getty Images . . I took 4 years of French in middle/ high school and never got to spend that semester abroad in Paris, but it’s never too late to enact action towards a dream. . . About 6 weeks ago, I started taking French lessons again. I might stumble on my conjugations but I am determined. I’ve given myself 2 years to get close to «couramment» I may never be as cool as Françoise Hardy but I can at least dress the part while walking along the Champs Élysée. #humeurdujour #goals #currentmood #francoisehardy #paris #french #français #courammentenfrancais #besoinderêver
Proverbs 14:30 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones . . . Ash Wednesday was last week which, if you didn’t know, is the beginning of Lent. Lent is the time when we give up some vice, like chocolate or alcohol, for 40 days. Funnily enough, it also happens to line up with mercury in retrograde this year (if you believe in that, which I also do). They both lend themselves to forcing us to take a step back from our overcomplicated and sometimes overwhelming lives. . . This year I chose to give up ENVY (I know this is a weird one because, I mean, how?) I’m pretty good (I’m using that loosely) about a lot of my other vices but envy is silent and insidious. . . When we look at a billboard of a perfectly thin youthful model; friends who have achieved perhaps more success than ourselves; friend who seem to have found that perfect person and are nauseatingly domestic and loving. . . I find most of my envy comes from fear or insecurity or even the dauntingly evil #FOMO. I wanted to start to simply recognize this emotion when it came up and to see if I could find peace instead. It hasn’t been easy but I seek council in friends and in the Bible to help me through it. Perhaps just the recognition of its presence in my life is helping to alleviate its power and I hope that by sharing my thoughts it might help someone else with it too. . . Thanks @fecastleberry for sharing this quote with me. You challenge and inspire me. #lent #envy #mercuryinretrograde #vice #proverbs
The Rorschach test, or “The Ink Blot test", was created by Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach in the 1920's. The test uses psychological interpretation and/or complex scientific algorithms to examine how the test subject perceives a series of ink blots. This test is often conducted in order to explore the subject's personality and the way that he or she emotionally perceives the world.

Some things I will always love about SoCal #santamonicapier #thebeach
“Make your ego porous. Will is of little importance, complaining is nothing, fame is nothing. Openness, patience, receptivity, solitude is everything.” - Rainer Maria Rilke Rilke is a much trusted part of my rituals in life. I often read LETTERS TO A YOUNG POET when I feel lost in art or in life. My first copy I got when I was in 11th grade, and I made copious notes in the margins. They remind me of the dreams I had in my youth, the ones I’ve accomplished, and the ones still awaiting fulfillment. Most of all when I read him now, I’m inspired yet again to pursue those intangible dreams. And in that realization, I find comfort in the consistency of his astute advice then and now and always. #rainermariarilke #sunset
