Anonymous: Hey, do you read books? If so, what are you currently reading and any recommendations, your blog is to die for.?. xx

I finished reading Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood the night last, it was breathtaking. I think it is now one of my most favoured books, I would unquestionably propose it as a recomendation.

Don’t bother trying to explain your emotions. Live everything as intensely as you can and keep whatever you felt as a gift from God. The best way to destroy the bridge between the visible and invisible is by trying to explain your emotions. -Paulo Coelho, Brida (via observando)

Allentown Art Museum in collaboration with Red Rooster Fabrics have created a new fabric collection inspired by the 19th-century Japanese Katagami (paper stencils used primarily for printing patterns on kimono fabric)in the museum’s textile collection. The collection includes eight katagami designs in traditional nature-inspired patterns and two textural prints (one based on shibori and other on indigo-dyed woven fabrics).

See the girl’s body half-submerged, making a bridge between elements. See the figure meet sky meet earth. -Valerie Martínez, from “Coastal,” in Absence, Luminescent (Four Way Books, 1999)

Surreptitiously, you shuffle your feet
and smoothen the lilac skirt that flutters
from your waist to your limbs
and swallow before you meet anyone’s eyes.

I always saw you as beautiful,
from the ripples in your sun-bleached
hair, the constellation of freckles on your cherry
cheeks, the wink your aquamarine eyes are adept at,
the contour of your soft, feminine body and
the aura of iridescence you exude with
every smile your lips arc into.

Shakily, you bite into your biscuit
you accepted with an unsure smirk
and insecure peek at everyone else
and you brush a tiny crumb off your lilac skirt.

I always saw you as iconic,
with your whimsical exploits and
innocent passion for precarious risks
and the copious cups of tea you offered me
with wise words of solace and sensibility
and your customary poise that made
people yearn to be or be with you.

Today, however,
no one comes forward to tell you how striking
the lilac skirt looks against your freckled skin
or the light in your eyes is brighter than the table-candles
but all I heard someone remark was a wry,
“Oh, you’ve put on weight!”
