Life is too short to talk about same thing over and over again, gossiping about neighbors/old friends that is irrelevant to your life. Talking about the makeup trend you see everyone put on but you dont even bother to try. Trying to show how fancy your bag, clothes, shoes are just because your peer group wear them.
We forget to talk about what matters to us. And then judge someone else not to match your standard and proceed to roast them because of it.
These are the homemade covers I used for the working drafts of the first four volumes of the Moments in Time Anthology. 📚
The drawings all have meaning to my thoughts at the time, as to the ideas within each book. 📚
At the editing stage, volumes 1 and 2 were combined to make a single book: and that became The Empty Sky, which I published last November. 📚
There's a certain nostalgia these images now give me, of uncertainty and excitement and crossing new territory in my writing. 📚
“The right appellation can be a complicated business. Interviewed about the chiose of Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov was expansive: ‘For my nymphet I needed a diminutive with a lyrical lilt to it. The suffix ‘-ita’ has a lot of Latin tenderness, and this I required too. Hence: Lolita. However it should not be pronounced as… most Americans pronounce it. Low-lee-ta, with an heavy, clammy ‘L’ and a long ‘o’. No, the first syllable should be as in ‘lollipop’, the ‘L’ liquid and delicate the ‘lee’ not too sharp. Spaniards and Italians pronounce it, of course, with exactly the necessary note of archness and caress. Another consideration was the welcome murmur of its source name, the foundation name: those roses and tears in ‘Dolores’. My little girl’s heartrending fate had to be taken into account together with cuteness and limpidity.” * @penguinclassics@penguinukbooks

All have been through innumerable unalike people in their life,
Potraiting the pretenders here.
Though there are mean people as well but at least they aren't fake.
But, what about this multitudinous population of pretenders here? you will be like yeah' man, there are plenty of them.
I will stop you right there,
Aren't you one of them?
Talking about the most viral shit where whole world is 24*7, Social media.
It got initiated with the rationale of connecting the world and sharing the real us, so that people can foregather for stuff and discern which they haven't explored yet and conversate about it.
What is really happening on social media?
Pretending to be the ones they are not.
Why do any of you have to be so damm pretentious? from fashion to captions, Everyone is after the same shit just to look cool and not to feel left out of the crowd,
Duh that's pathetically not so cool, what's cool is that you being the real you and sharing what is actually going on with your life, so people can relate with you, because no one is fucking interested in how many Abs you are carrying or how deep is your cleavage or what you use to look-like 10 years ago, because, 10 years ago at least life was real instead of this viral showoff media everyone is running for. So, if you think that you are showing off well to the ones who do not have that much to showoff, also think about the ones who got more than that,
who will be like, why the fuck are you even showing that off.
There are countless people who end up hurting their close ones, for stuff which isn't meant for their pockets, just to show off and match up with the world.
Make your life real and worth sharing and let the showoffs follow you to match up.
