Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. there is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.
Lie down and look up at the ceiling and breathe with those curiously fragile lungs of yours and remind yourself: Don’t worry. Don’t worry. All is as it was meant to be. It was meant to be lonely and terrifying and unfair and heaving. Don’t worry.
We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.

I miss our conversations…a place to be real.(via volari)
There are two voices in you at all times. One howls what the world expects of you, while the other gently whispers all that you, in your heart, truly want. Happiness comes to those who have learned how to drown out the white noise of the world and pay close attention to what really matters.
When Colour Occupies Space: Paint Chip Art by Peter CombeSan Francisco-based visual artist creates three-dimensional artworks using household paint swatches as his prime matter, usually hand-punched into small disks. He then fits these disks into bevel-cut grooves on a specially prepared archival material in order to create his pieces, ranging from abstract pattern-based colour compositions to realistic portraits of people. Apart from producing portraits commissioned by collectors, Combe also likes to work with images found on social media, especially Instagram. What he finds interesting in working with these images is the contrast between the fleeting, impermanent nature of social media platforms and the more fixed and enduring nature of his artworks, which as he says achieves a sense of ”captured history,” much like a vintage photograph. With this idea also present in Michael Zavros’ photorealistic paintings, it’s no coincidence that we found him and Combe speaking to each other on Instagram!
*panics but in a super chill & casual way*
constructed identity as self-care. performance as self-care. aesthetic as self-care. these things are so valuable, constructing a self you like and cherish is so valuable, choosing to be a person you enjoy is so valuable
For my friends. You know who you are!
I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society
Love and Lesbians ♡
Bless whoever made this.
