I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights sleep, worked too long and too hard in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I’ve lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment.

Like Toast

Another fantastic catalogue from Toast , both clothes and images are beautiful. I also love how they use models of all different ages, really makes them stand out.

Really wonderful artwork by, they have literally thousands and at very reasonable prices. Shame they have so few of UK gigs though.

Moroccan Doorways

These are some photographs I took from when I went to Morocco a few months ago. The doorways of just ordinary, everyday buildings are so ornate, they really are beautiful. These were mostly taken in Essaouira, a lovely sea side, fishing town.

All images owned by me.

"I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, 
not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else."

Between chores-
                          hauling strawberries
                          answering letters-
 or between poems,

returning to the mirror 
to see if I'm there.

Ai Weiwei

Sign the petition to free this incredible and influential artist, who's whereabouts are currently unknown. A creative voice deserves to be heard no matter where you are from, as the artist himself said: "All people have a responsibility to speak their opinion on things, to state the simple principles of their lives".
 Don't let the Chinese authorities be successful in silencing his voice that is projected so fiercely through his art.

& Nostalgia

the first time i met you my stomach was lifted into my throat by one million butterflies & i nearly lost my shit. you caught me joking about what i would do to you if i got you alone & you laughed. i caught you watching me & laughed as well. that smile, i want to suck
 the enamel off your teeth some late night as we watch the city come alive. i want to  watch the sunrise from balconies with you after a night spent discussing politics. i want to get under your skin. i want to listen & absorb your idea’s/ideals. i want to study the geography
 of your body. i want to start a revolution with you. i want to write secret notes on your back as you sleep next to me. but what i really want is to tell you that regardless of everything, i love you. even if you never love me back… i love you. i hope that when you’re laying in 
bed after a night spent in some distant state or country, watching terrible tv, that you don’t feel alone.
 i love you.
