The day I was born, lived and died in a car we sang songs of a rusted earth though the radio insisted a moodier hum A marigold sky melted the sun, so the moon drew forth like a sword. We gazed out …
Read my beautiful friend’s beautiful poem. Also, she is my Facebook open girlfriend for probably 6 years now, so I’m allowed to brag, no?
adobeangels replied to your photo: Have some respect for literature. They didn’t write this book for you to deface, no matter who you are, or how good your drawings are.
This is a curious reaction. The drawing is on one of several blank pages, in a book first published many decades ago, that I…
I find it fascinating that it is deemed “defacing” when it is clearly another layer of art. If I wasn’t a nicer person I’d say some mean things about being a pompous ass who thinks s/he knows all about what every writer has ever thought, but alas, I’m so very nice.
Who knows why they wrote the books they did? Maybe s/he didn’t write the book for anyone. Maybe it was discovered in the trap door bottom of an old desk. And then someone decided to publish it because it touched him/her.
The beauty of literature is that it is open to be interpreted in any way by anyone. There are so many brains to put words into and they will think and understand in whichever way they choose or are able to.
I’m of the mindset that once words are printed in such a manner, they are no longer yours. They become your readers’, to chew on for themselves.
Art is art is art is art is art is art is art is art is art is art is art is art is art

I can reblog this because it’s finally truuuuuuue
Trying to sign up for any website ever that involves being social or people thinking you’re cool is seriously the worst thing.
In the small town of Ashland, Pennsylvania, Route 61 takes an unexplained detour; a “Keep Out” sign straddles the original highway. Ignore the warning and you’ll arrive in the abandoned town of Centralia, where an underground mine fire has been burning since 1962 when residents accidentally ignited a vein of anthracite coal. Despite efforts stop the fire it still burns today and could burn for 250 years. Some houses still stand but most have been demolished. ‘Silent Hill’ was based on this town
AWESOME I must go there
It’s somewhat funny to me when this circles the internet, being from PA. I think when you live in Central Pennsylvania, at some point you are supposed to make this pilgrimage to Centralia. I mean, we even talked about it in some of my classes in college. I still have yet to do this.
I’ve seen pictures though, because of course everyone who goes takes pictures. I’ve seen pictures and didn’t even know what they were, but still knew it was Centralia, this is how many times I’ve seen them. Ha.
The road is split in places, like the gaping maw of hell is opening, and I guess I’m somewhat afraid I’ll make one wrong step.
I like: Little Things.
I have a small collection of them. (Ha.) We go to the flea market and I always want to buy old doll furniture. I don’t know what this means.
