in the air and in the sounds coming off the mounds of Bolton’s Ridge. Death’s anchorage. When you rolled a smoke or told a joke, it was in the laughter and drinking water it approached the beach as strings of cutters, dropped into the sea and lay around us.
“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create - so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.”—Pearl S. Buck (via theonlymagicleftisart)
If you’re like me (and like most women), getting your picture taken can be an extremely stressing situation if you don’t know what your flattering angles, and right poses are. Instyle has this pretty straight forward formula that will help you transform “picture taking awkwardness” into gorgeous portraits of yourself. Take a look at it, practice, pose, and smile away, you’re beautiful! :)
We’re all busy at work. It’s a “good thing,” right? Well, it is, unless your to-do list is a mile long, you’re always stressed out, and you don’t know where to start. You see, there is an art to being busy, and it’s not easy to master. You have to stick to your obligations, do a good job, and enjoy yourself while working. Oh, and you totally need to protect your time off.
