raconte moi une histoire

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
-David Herbert Lawrence

About Me:

"Today, I broke my personal record for the most consecutive days lived..."
I'm not an artist, I just like creating images. I came. I saw. I blogged...
"I've loved and I've lost"
"I am a dreamer, but I'll deny it til the day I die..."
"I've just been shutting myself in a numb defensive vacuum with this false pretence of nonchalance."
"I am a jumble of passions, misgivings, and wants. It seems I'm always in a state of wishing and rarely in a state of contentment."- Libba Ray
"I swing between procrastination and being really thorough so either way things aren't getting done quickly." - Freema Agyeman


I need a life that isn’t just about needing to escape my life.
Robert Polito, excerpt from “Please Refrain from Talking During the Movie” (via larmoyante)

"Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked." ~ George Carlin

“Affirmative consent,” the law says, “means affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. It is the responsibility of each person involved in the sexual activity to ensure that he or she has the affirmative consent of the other or others to engage in the sexual activity. Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time. The existence of a dating relationship between the persons involved, or the fact of past sexual relations between them, should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.” You can read the whole law here.

(And yes, it shouldn’t have to be made sexy. But at least it’s there.)
