There is only one time
when it is essential to awaken.
That time is now.
Sometimes I feel like I am drawn to the city.
I often find myself there on my days off, walking beneath the skyscrapers,
my heart beating contently in a rhythmic thud.
On Thursday I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Downtown
Los Angeles. I was surrounded by the works of Barbara Kruger and Andy Warhol, two of my favorite artists. They also had a few collections of Polaroids,
which I drew some inspiration from. Since I visited on a Thursday, admission was free. This is my idea of a perfect day off.
This week I spent the majority of my time buried within the pages of the new
book I'm reading "The Help". While book browsing at the store, I came upon
The Help and decided to buy it when I read the review on the front cover "If
you only read one book...let this be it." I thought "yeah right, it's that good?.."
But to my surprise, it is. I highly recommend it.
After my henna tattoo completely faded completely a few days ago, I made an
important decision: I'm getting a permanent one. In about a month's time
because it'll give me enough time to find the perfect design and tattoo artist.
All I know so far is I want it to look similar to the one below.
I decided I want a swallow because of the neat symbolism behind it. A swallow, no matter how far it travels, always returns home. I also loved the idea of people getting one after they have overcome a difficult struggle in their lives (which I feel suits me well). And lastly, I liked that it represents faithfulness. A swallow is a monogamous bird and will stay with it's one mate forever. I'll be getting one on my right arm first and in the future another on my left arm to match it.
What do you think?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
love you all x
