This book, when I am dead, will be
A little faint perfume of me.
People who knew me well will say,
She really used to think that way.
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
Never expect someone to respect your feelings because you respected theirs. Never expect someone not to hurt you because you would never hurt them.
Lana Sutra for United Colors of Benetton by Erik RaveloThe global brand United Colors of Benetton has successfully fulfilled an experimental project, created by a young Cuban artist at Fabrica, Erik Ravelo.
On the 6th of September of 2011, UCB hosted the simultaneous event in their three concept stores in Istanbul, Milan and Munich, as well as on the web for worldwide audiences, as they presented a series of 15 art installations signed by the artist, symbolizing the brand’s DNA spirit of unity in diversity.
The 15 installations of Lana Sutra are created as homage to the spirit of love that embodies our connection as one race and our strength as one unit, as well it also dedicated to the desire for an equal and sharing society. The project’s visuals are based on the famous Indian literature Kama Sutra, with the word Kama replaced by Lana, the Italian and Spanish word for wool, and sutra that means a thread which unites.
The installations represent sculptures of human couple that are made of clay and colorful woolen threads, uniting them and merging the bodies one to another as a symbol of unity when the different colors meet, which the colors itself are chosen from the brand’s shades of Fall Winter 2011-2012 collection ready to purchase at UCB local stores worldwide.
1. You may have illuminated my life, but darling, you are not the sun.
2. A couple tears for you, but baby, you know the ocean wasn’t built on your departure.
3. You know when the sun is out and it is raining? This is what loving you felt like.
3.5. My body was not meant for this type of inconsistent climate.
4. If loving me was a crime, you would be wrongfully convicted.
5. We both know we can’t trust the prison system, but even so, I will refuse to pay your bail.
6. You stopped putting fire to this passionate relationship we called love.
6.5. And now, I am cold hearted, I give you full credit for this occurrence.
7. Whenever I got injured growing up, my mother always said, “alcohol en las heridas.” Goodness, I never thought she’d be so right.
8. The moon will look at me fiercely some nights, she will have your eyes, but I refuse to be tricked by her glimmer.
9. I am grateful that you left in the midst of spring. Summer is far too hot to want another lover on my bed while I sleep at night.
10. You are not the sun, you are not the moon, you are a mere remnant of the past and I will chant this over and over to consume the memory of you.
Wicked Zodiac - Who Can Do the Most Damage?
Aries may have a reputation for confrontation and intimidation, Gemini for gossip and manipulation, Virgo for distance and criticism but which signs from the zodiac can really be the most psychologically destructive? Leave that up to the signs that are also the most psychologically therapeutic. The Water Triplicy; Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The water signs are almost psychic in their perceptions and insights, although this is often clouded by emotions, irrationality, intensity of feelings and imagination.
When a water sign has been wounded, they can be amongst the most destructive of psychic vampires. The intuition that comes with knowing how to heal people, is equally as skilled at destroying them. Although water signs are never outwardly aggressive (Scorpio, confrontational at times) they will respond if they feel personally scathed. An intensity of emotions which can lead to impulsivity, delusion and over compensating imaginations can turn even the most shy of water signs into an irrational hell bent rage in the name of revenge. While a water signs attack may not be physical, their psychological damage will transpire in every affliction; mental, physiological and spiritual.
Water signs are known to follow their intuition and at times neglect reality. This can allow them to be lead astray in emotions and respond to unnatural feelings and malicious discontent. In moments out of touch with reality, the therapeutic knowledge in the right words and the right moment in helping someone is reversed. With this innate intuitive insight also comes the capacity to literally devastate someone from within.
In terms of criminality, Cancerians are known mostly as being ‘passion killers’; killing multiple times and leaving some kind of markings on their victims’ bodies to distinguish themselves. Many were understood to be mentally unstable. Scorpio overrepresented in ‘contract’ killers. The relationship between the Water Triplicy and criminality was quite resounding. Those who appear the most harmless, are also the most dangerous. You’re sweet little cherub pixie Piscean may not be so sweet after you cross her. Don’t forget that.
