Animal Spirit

Why are some people (mainly woman) more prone to dressing up their domestic animals? No doubt, it is the motherly doting nature. These zoo animals are hysterically fashionable. Some people really do get pets instead of children.   Like everything in the universe, there is the other extreme. The most dangerous and the largest cat in the wild is the Amur. If you were born and bred to survive the arctic Siberian weather terrain, you’d be a badass too. As the encyclope­dic reference Mammals of the Soviet Union puts it, ‘The general appearance of the tiger is that of a huge physical force and quiet confidence, combined with a rather heavy grace.’   ‘Picture the grotesquely muscled head of a pit … Read More

Love

I have always said and believed there is a big difference between loving someone and being ‘in love’ with someone. The ‘in love’ part has been a while ago; I question my own cynicism. I have had the most storybook of relationships and am so appreciative for what I’ve experienced and the great people whom have come in my life. Unfortunately, for both juvenile and primitive reasons, a lot of love is possessive. This Paperman video (preview) has been making its way around the internet for the last couple weeks and it’s just a lovely reminder of how well things can and should feel between two people 😉

Memories

We are all just the sum of our stories. Some stories last longer. Holding onto our stories, pictures, memories, experiences, this is what describes us, defines us, and memorializes us. Let me preface this by mentioning I have not, will not, nor have any desire to read the raunch which is 50 Shades of Grey. From what i gather the book is written with the 2nd grade literature skill of ‘see spot run’ and entirely researched with the use of Wikipedia and Google. Poor woman, short of authentic exciting sexual experience. :/ That being said, another set of books came out a couple years ago called Diary of a Call Girl, by a legit London lady escort. Showtime attempted to … Read More

Unconditional Love

I think this term is an oxymoron. Because humans are fallible, there will always be conditions. It just might take extreme conditions to test the case, but still. Romantic love can be tainted with jealousy and insecurity. I believe the closest we come to feeling unconditional love is from our parents. One person that knows every last nitty gritty and distasteful thing about my self is my mother; and she loves me all the same, forever, unconditionally. When I was in Europe back in June, I noticed a theme of mother-daughter sets. I snapped a few fun pics when I was able.  God Bless them. [nggallery id=13]

Who Are You?

When we meet someone for the first time, we immediately ask what they do for a living. We have been conditioned to do so. Since we spend the majority of our hours in a day doing work, it makes perfect sense. Rarely what we do describes a large chunk of our character though, or even an insight into our personality traits. Sometimes it might, like if a person works for a non-profit replacing female vets into the workforce; we may presume this person has a good character. But other times, even if what we are doing is something we are really passionate about, it is only one layer of our self. On social networks, we can express only what we … Read More
