Bon Iver - Holocene (Official Music Video)

The Quiet World..

In an effort to get people to look
into each other’s eyes more,
and also to appease the mutes,
the government has decided
to allot each person exactly one hundred
and sixty-seven words, per day.

When the phone rings, I put it to my ear

without saying hello. In the restaurant
I point at chicken noodle soup.
I am adjusting well to the new way.

Late at night, I call my long distance lover,

proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.
I saved the rest for you.

When she doesn’t respond,

I know she’s used up all her words,
so I slowly whisper I love you
thirty-two and a third times.
After that, we just sit on the line
and listen to each other breathe.

Once Upon A Time..

“Once upon a time there was a boy. 
He lived in a village that no longer exists, in a house that no longer exists, on the edge of a field that no longer exists, where everything was discovered and everything was possible. 
A stick could be a sword. 
A pebble could be a diamond. 
A tree a castle. 

Once upon a time there was a boy who lived in a house across the field from a girl who no longer exists.
They made up a thousand games. 
She was Queen and he was King. 
In the autumn light, her hair shone like a crown. 
They collected the world in small handfuls. 
When the sky grew dark they parted with leaves in their hair. 

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.”

Aristescent and his Stream of Romance..

Aristescent was a handsome god with locks of golden hair and sparkly blue eyes, which made him the image of a perfect man. He was blessed with the gift of intelligence and using it to create romance through the sense of smell.

The Stream of Romance flowed with water of different fragrances. They all flowed separately, never reaching a destination and never emerging as one. They cleansed young, beautiful bodies and made young ladies smell as fresh as a rosebud. Only the most beautiful women would go to the river and cleanse their bodies with this magic water. No man could ever reach them, because as long as the water did not merge, so will man not merge with woman.

Aristescent saw a need of romance in this paradise of tropical trees and sparkling water, so he decided that he will combine only the best flavours and create a potion of love.

Steam in the form of hearts evaporated from the mixture as it combined to form a beautiful red colour. The most wonderful fragrance escaped from the mixture and filled the air. 

The next day, young ladies arrived at the river and smelled something they have never smelt before. Immediately, they felt very passionate and romantic. As they washed themselves and smelled like rosebuds, young men arrived at the river. The young men were built with majestic form and they all had golden locks and sparkling blue eyes. They were the desire of every woman and the hatred of any ordinary man. These men were the brave ones to step forward. The ladies were attracted to these men and invited them to step into the river with them. As their bodies were washed and a wonderful scent escaped, they fell in love with the each other.

Since then, anyone who felt lonely and in the need of passion and romance, would go to the river and wash themselves. They would carry a wonderful scent and attract handsome men or beautiful young ladies. They would then fall in love with each other, get married and have children. As these children will mature, they will feel in need of love and so they will visit the river and the same thing will happen to them. This was how it was carried through generations of families. 

This was the reason why men and women feel so attracted to another through scent. It was the beginning of ‘love is in the air’.                    

Paramahansa Yogananda..

“A genuine smile distributes the cosmic current, prana, to every body cell.
The happy man is less subject to disease, for happiness actually attracts into the body a greater supply of the Universal life energy.”

The Farm - Burgersdorp. A majestic place ♥


Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist ♥

My heartbeat accelerates. 
I am in the here, in the now. 
I am also in the future. 
I am holding her and wanting and knowing and hoping all at once. 
We are the ones who take this thing called music and line it up with this thing called time. 
We are the ticking, we are the pulsing, we are the underneath every part of this moment. 
And by making this moment our own, we are rendering it timeless. 
There is no audience. 
There are no instruments. 
There are only bodies and thoughts and murmurs and looks. 
It’s the concert rush to end all concert rushes, because this is what matters. 
When the heart races, this is what it’s racing toward.

At Summer's End..

Early August, and the young butternut
is already dropping its leaves, the nuts
thud and ring on the tin roof,

the squirrels are everywhere.
Such richness! It means something to them
that this tree should seem so eager

to finish its business.
The voice softens, and word becomes air
the moment it is spoken. You finger the limp leaves.

Precisely to the degree that you have loved something:
a house, a woman, a bird, this tree, anything at all,
you are punished by time.

Like the tree,
I take myself by surprise.

“At Summer’s End” by John Engels, from Sinking Creek.

My Special Day ♥ 21

All Things Beautiful..

I am NOT your ordinary type of girl,
I do NOT like to follow - instead, I lead,
I do NOT let anything get me down,
I AM proud of who I am,
I AM addicted to music and lyrics,

I AM in love with beauty, fashion, and art 

In this blog I will share with you all the things that I find beautiful and interesting. There are SO many incredible things and talented people in this world which do not always get the recognition they deserve. And that is where Hello, Dolly comes in...
