Into the mercy seat I climb My head is shaved, my head is wired And like a moth that tries To enter the bright eye I go shuffling out of life Just to hide in death awhile
Sara Teasdale, "Enough"
It is enough for me by day To walk the same bright earth with him; Enough that over us by night The same great roof of stars is dim. I do not hope to bind the wind Or set a fetter on the sea — It is enough to feel his love Blow by like music over me.

linzo: trowdy: Childbirth is an important rite of passage for every woman. Even if you choose to never do it, you should still have a plan in place for what your labor would be like for when you eventually change your mind and decide that hating men and loving 12 cats just isn’t fulfilling enough. Really, it’s not even about having or raising children… you just need to go through childbirth....

Bindu: Tantra is also connected with sexual experiences. Sohan: Yes, the way sex is linked with life, so it is also linked with Tantra. Sex has an important place in life, and Tantra only gives it the position it deserves. In other places it has been pushed out from its central place by the aesthetics, by the religious aesthetics. It is a kind of aesthetics of Puritanism. Just like in art...

abloodymess: I’m not jumping on the oil company hate. Do any of us really give THAT MUCH of a shit that all this oil is spilling in the gulf? Yes, many of us do. I am scared that there at too many people thats biggest fear is that there may not be enough pelicans to soak all that oil up. Most of the “advocates” are just sitting around re-tweeting news stories and videos about how stupid...

“When I put my hands on your body on your flesh I feel the history of that body. Not just the beginning of its forming in that distant lake but all the way beyond its ending. I feel the warmth and texture and simultaneously I see the flesh unwrap from the layers of fat and disappear. I see the fat disappear from the muscle. I see the muscle disappearing from around the organs and...

Iceland votes to become "Media Haven" →

Ladies, you can't have chivalry AND feminism.
oldtobegin: robotpieces: animalsandmonsters: It just doesn’t work that way. The two philosophies directly contradict each other. That is what we like to call “having your cake and eating it too”. Personally, I hope you pick feminism. There is less pressure on me that way. ”Bitch, I ain’t throwing my jacket in a puddle for you to walk on! This is fucking leather! Just walk around the goddamn...

About 6 months ago I rear-ended a dummy in traffic because she stopped her car for virtually no reason in the middle of a rotary. Thankfully I was only going about 5-10 miles an hour, so aside from the fact that her bumper was mangled from left to right from previous accidents, no one was hurt and there was no (new) damage to either car. We exchanged information as a matter of principle but were...
