But I want to forget all those things for a minute.  Okay?
- "Okay."
I want to make sure that the first person you kiss loves you.  Okay?
- "Okay."
She was crying harder now.  And I was, too
because when I hear something like that I just can't help it.

I just want to make sure of that.  Okay?
- "Okay."
And she kissed me.
 It was the kind of kiss that I could never tell
my friends about out loud.
 It was the kind of kiss that made me know that
I was never so happy in my whole life . . .

 ー The Perks of Being a Wallflower




The Perks of Being a Wallflower Official Trailer
i just finished the book .I have this urge to take it anywhere i go ,
so i can be near it (them) .


if you wonder about the song : the smiths - ♫ "asleep "




"I hope the seasons treat you well
I hope the seasons treat you kind
as kind as I never was
as comforting as I never could be

I hope this new season
brings you the cold air
I'm sure the wind blows gently on you now
I hope that nothing will ever remind you of me..."



-carissas wierd .



you know me . like every year . here it is .


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. ♥

Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .

Thank you so much! I stole a plant last year from some people on my old property I thought it was a geranium, then when it grew taller I thought It was marijuana plant so I brought in side because I still liked it but when I saw the flowers and lack of leaves I was confused we don't have to much like this in British Columbia. then when it died there were a few seeds so i threw them into a planter forgot about them put the planter outside now I have five! I also know what they are now!

people forget about such feelings as love because we live very fast nowadays...
the world wants us to be some kind of ...'predators' - fight, conquer,capture and acquire things,
inner feelings such as love only hinder the progress
but in this rat race one lacks respect for other people often..

I don't know why but.. for some reason I always stood aside this
Maybe I'm not ambitious, maybe weak,
but I believe that we can live better than that: respecting, helping... loving each other

I kind of agree with you.
People might not be ready to be in the capitalist system yet... We must mature and see that there're much more than just power...
As Jimi Hendrix said once: "When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace."
