John James Chalon – Les Dames Artistes, ca. 1822

Tumblr salutes you, lady in the green dress painting ~artistic~ buff naked dudes.

I just couldn’t stop thinking about this fan artist foremother, so I had to draw her. She’s so high-minded, with her buff naked dude from a David painting, I decided to show her painting something less serious:tumblr_inline_pepquwQ0p41qzl77q_500

I dislike the phrase ‘Internet friends,’ because it implies that people you know online aren’t really your friends, that somehow the friendship is less real or meaningful to you because it happens through Skype or text messages. The measure of a friendship is not its physicality but its significance. Good friendships, online or off, urge us toward empathy; they give us comfort and also pull us out of the prisons of our selves

John Green – (from the introduction of “This Star Won’t Go Out” by Esther Earl)

thedailylovejournal: I was waiting, for you. Everything I ever done, for you India.

Just as a flower does not choose its color, we are not responsible for what we have come to be. Only once you realize this do you become free.

–  Stoker

abigailpaige: i thought of you, while in the shower

and i thought of how nice it’d be

to have your things among my things

along the bathtub’s edge

and i imagined myself running out of soap

and using yours

and wearing you to work, and the grocery store

and i imagined that night, laying down beside you

and smelling your neck

and finding out where all my soap had gone
