alone in this together by jyoujo alone in this together by jyoujo


 And in this moment , I swear ... We are i n f i n i t e .



this is my favorite shot of this year . I have my own reasons why .





if you are not familiar with the legend : here we go !


Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥




Amos Lee - ♫ " Soul Sucker "



Did you believe it,
when they told you they discovered you?
And that everything is free,
as long as you do what they tell you to.
You think it's true?

Did you even listen,
Cause that nobody wants honesty when looking at a perfect frame

Nothing could be further from the truth,
my love..
And nothing is more powerful that beauty in a wicked world.

- Amos Lee










"Do you always think this much, Charlie?"


"Is that bad?"


"Not necessarily.

It's just that sometimes people use thought
to not participate in l i f e ."


"Is that bad?"


" Y e s ."
