"To sing you must first open your mouth. You must have a pair of lungs, and little knowledge of music. It is not necessary to have an accordion or a guitar. The essential thing is to WANT to sing. This then is a song. I am singing."
And this is the song I sing....
Lose your inhibition, follow your intuition, free your inner soul, and break away from tradition.

Lithuanian artist and craftsman Vainius Kubilius transforms coconut shells into radiant jewels that cast dazzling patterns of light and shadow in every direction. Kubilius’ awesome handmade lamps are called Nymphs and each one is unique. Made of coconut, cork and suede, they have a wonderfully organic feel.
To create his illuminated coconuts, Kubilius carefully shaves and waxes each hollowed out shell. Then comes the painstaking process of drilling thousands of holes in intricate patterns, much like the amazing eggshell art we’ve featured here in the past. The lamp stands are wrapped in layers of suede and varnished cork.
Kubilius makes each lamp by hand in Vilnius, Lithuania, but something tells us that if you found the right map hidden in the false bottom of an old trunk at that one flea market, it might lead you to the secret grove where these radiant creatures grow. And when you aren’t looking they communicate with each other by intertwining their bodies and moving their coconut shell heads to alter the patterns and intensity of light and shadow. It’s just a hunch.

I would love to
So let’s become flowers,
I want to growSandbox Poetry
Up from the ground
I wanna catch salamanders together.
Let’s lift up bolders,
I told her:
My heart is as heavy as stone.
But I bet you could skip my heart
Just like my heart skips beats
when I’m looking at you.
So just let me look at you,
I promise it won’t hurt,
Because if looks could kill,
I’m almost certain that I’d be bleeding by now.
i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u, beautiful.
That’s one of the most uplifting things I’ve readThis needs to get passed around more
