Golden Gaze

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Sonya Marmurek

It’s the golden eve, the heat of day having exhausted every living thing, the rays of sun slowly drawing out the very last pieces of focus and coherence, leaving behind only lazy lounging instinct, the primal indulgence of basking in the sun.

goldengaze3csThere’s luxury in the warmth, delicious decadence in the heat where the only reason to adorn one’s body is for decoration.

goldengaze2csThe haze shifts perception into rose-gilded illusions, into acute sensitivity of each pearl pressing against warm skin, the stark contrast of shade and sun like cooler stripes painted on the world.

Bunlings Bewildered

“Agent Aww, what was so important that the bunny signal has been lit and the whole bunny mafia has emerged out of the secret burrows and pockets? You know you’re supposed to pad in shadows.”

bb1cs“I told them that, boss, but there was no helping it. They just keep arguing!”

“We want to know what our battle cry is!”

“Bunlings Be Brave!”

“No, Burrow! Bunlings Burrow! And then we hide, see.”

bb2cs“Ah… I see. A serious matter, then. And it has to start with B, of course?”

“Of course! You don’t see Avengers gathering, now do you? Bunlings… Balance? Read more at the source.

Splashing in the Sun

“Yes, you may play with pandas, just watch out that you don’t fall… ah. Well, swimming is good in the heat, splash some extra while you’re there, I’ll pick you up in just a moment. Yes, Adler, I know your paws can’t reach the drink, just take it as a tummy cooler for now. Now someone help me liberate this poor seal pup of this outfit, surely he can’t be comfortable in this…”

Dive Deeper

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Sonya Marmurek

Dive deeper. It’s summer, it’s time to swim and play. Time to explore for the sake of exploration, to see new sights, try out new things, view visions never encountered before.

 Who says the water isn’t warm enough yet? The sunlight reaches all the way down during the summer nights and where it doesn’t reach, the magic of underwater growth lights the way.

mermaidred1ds

Perhaps if you’re lucky enough in your watery visits you might pique an interest of someone ascending to visit you in return. Curiosity is a remarkable trait, goes both ways.

Just Be

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Sonya Marmurek

They’re always there, fluttering. Thoughts, hopes, fears. What-ifs of past, paths of the future. Choices, estimations, considerations, re-considerations. Neverending. Tempting, condemning, promising, despairing.

gothbunny3bs

They can feel like a burden, a swarm around you, never giving you a moment’s peace, drawing you in different directions, pulling your steps from one side to another, turn from your path forward back and around to the past again, caught in a cycle.

gothbunny2bs

Sometimes you can’t leave them behind, sometimes they will simply turn you around again. Sometimes the fears are so mixed with hopes that you cannot tell them apart, all the paths are Read more at the source.

Keep Walking

“Of course we come out at daytime as well. No, the sun does not really burn us. No, we do not turn to stone at the touch of sunlight.”

“Parasols are convenient though, even on beautifully soft and cloudy days. …no, not because of the sunlight, didn’t you listen a word I said? They’re convenient to twirl and preen with, the best accessory of them all.”

“Not to mention that if you fold it, you have a sharp poking stick weapon at hand. Just in case. Where was I? Ah yes, the stories about turning to stone at sunlight? Complete Read more at the source.

Not an Aloe Vera

“Yes, I know they’re beautiful. Yes, I know they invite you for a closer look. Yes, I know the movement is hypnotizing. Regardless: approach at your own risk.”

“I don’t know how much help we’ve already lost trying to tend to them. Look, they are perfectly fine on their own, they don’t need tending!”

notaloevera2bs

“Just leave them be in the darkness with a few candles, possibly some thematic music on the background, a skull or two, some Lovecraft for literature and they’ll be fine.”

The Solace of Silence

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Sonya Marmurek

Silence can be blessed. That quiet sunset of soul when there’s no demanding voices, no distracting noise, no chaotic confusion. That moment of completeness when you can just take a deep breath, let the exhale escape in contentment and feel the peace.

quiet1bs

In silence we can hear ourselves: our thoughts, our feelings. In silence we have perspective to achieve, mirrors to face, room to grow.

quiet3bs

In silence there is solace, relaxation of the spirit, freedom to simply be with no rush or limits. In silence we hear and face the truths of life.

quiet2bs

In silence we learn.

The Violet Vision

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Sonya Marmurek

It is all about the vision. Do you see in the dark? Do you see the sights in the night? Do you see the pathways, the dance, the invitation? Do you see where it all leads?

Are you one of the dark-dwelling folks, the ones who hiss at daylight and awaken truly at night? Do you believe black is fully acceptable colour for any occasion any time of year? Do your eyes see violet and never shrink?
