Misconceptions of Authors + Their Place in Society As I continue writing and looking up tidbits of information, I am unfortunately reminded that the make-up of today's society seems to not appreciate authors as much as they once did. My only question is: why is that?
Surely there have been great technological advances in which it is easier to obtain books (audio books, Kindles, iTunes downloads, and the like); however, it seems that we hold the creators of our most beloved stories at low esteem. There was a time when authors and certainly artists of any talent were looked upon as the most intelligent of intellectuals, second only to scientists and philosophers. We are being b
Namaste! everyone, it has been a very long time since I wrote a new lesson, but I had many things happening around me, which helped me to come to the conclusion that I have to stop for a while and think things trough, and I did and this is how this lesson was born. I will talk about healing. Yes, this topic is forbidden in many communities, and even in society. So let us begin.
Healing, at first sight it is only a word like the other words, but there are a few words which have more meaning or other meanings, for example Mother, Love, Light, Healing, Spiritual, and so on. But today I will put the emphasis on the Healing.
So, the word Healing
The Rights of a Man
“We believe in happiness and stability,” says Mustapha Mond, the main antagonist in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. In this scene, he defends the government’s totalitarianism, stating it is better to lose rights than to live in an unstable world. Sound familiar? It should, considering it is the theme for many other works of dystopian literature, such as George Orwell’s 1984 and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. However, this argument can also be seen in modern day politics, as representatives argue over how much governmental control in our daily lives is too much. Which is more important, rights or stability withi
BSL Laws and Pit Bull DogsWhat would you do if you were told to get rid of your dog or it will be killed? That is exactly what has been happening to people in cities across the nation. First, it was German Shepherds, next it was Doberman Pinschers, then Rottweilers. Today, it is Pit Bulls and pit bull type dogs. Due to of Breed-Specific Legislation (BSL) laws, cities across the U.S. are banning Pit Bulls and pit bull type dogs. They are being taken from their homes and killed, vicious or not. BSL is not just about public safety, its about targeting breeds of dogs (Beyond the Myth). BSL is not effective because it is only targeting a specific breed of

What a Cyclone it has Been In 1939, Dorothy’s house took off for the first time from Kansas to Oz, via tornado. The image has been used and parodied numerous times. It’s one of the most iconic forms of American pop culture, and since then the twister has become a symbol of Kansas itself.
In my 2013 Professional Art final, a twister has once again been reproduced. The compositional piece includes color from the chalks used, blended into each other. The shape of the tornado easily expresses itself as a funnel, and the twisted skyline drops into the tube of the tempest. That takes care of shape and color.
Next is positioning: the twister lies in
''Dei Sepolcri'' 2
Vero è ben, Pindemonte! Anche la Speme,
ultima Dea, fugge i sepolcri (4); e involve
tutte cose l'obblio nella sua notte;
e una forza operosa le affatica
di moto in moto (5); e l'uomo e le sue tombe
e l'estreme sembianze e le reliquie
della terra e del ciel traveste il tempo (6).
4) Anche la speranza ("Speme") abbandona le tombe: cioè non vi è alcuna speranza di sopravvivenza dopo la morte.
5) la dimenticanza avvolge ogni cosa nelle sue tenebre, cancella ogni traccia degli esseri esistenti,e la forza della Natura, sempre all'opera li trasforma in un continuo travaglio ("affatica") distruggendo le forme assunte dall

Peter Parker - Why is he still a photographer?Should Peter be allowed to achieve some degree of success or achievement?
Let me explain where I'm coming from:
I graduated from University in 2009 with a BA Hons in Politics with Economics. And despite working in Financial Services for the last few years, its only in the last two months I've actually started working on a Banking project whereby things I studied in my degree is even partially relevant.
How's this relate to Peter Parker?
I was watching the first Spider-Man movie today for the first time in 6/7 years. There is a moment Peter turns down a job with Norman Osborn to instead take up photography for the Bugle. So he's studying C
My Art And The Criticism Of It~I prefer instructive criticism over trolling on my art work.
~Do not use my art unless I allow you to do so.
~I vary between traditional and digital.
~Jade, how dare you say my art work sucks when you can't even get much criticism on yours or accept it when you do. This goes for everyone else. Please grow up... I am sick of fighting with you and you trying to lower my self esteem. You are actually failing at it and making me stronger. Every time you fuck with my emotions, I get stronger. Look at the difference on how we've turned out and where our paths diverge. You making me seem like a loser has never helped you. No offense, eighteen is the time to grow into an adult. You can keep some childish stuff, but there needs to be maturity, too.
~If you have a problem with my art, then please politely move along to some other page. I am not in the mood ever for trolling. If you're a little kid trying to start a fight, then I pity you.
~If you have an issue with any of this, I ap
Qualche verso di Yves Bonnefoy, Poeta francese!
MOVIMENTO E IMMOBILITà DI DOUVE (Einaudi editore)
Nota: Douve è un luogo immaginario, ideato dal Poeta.
Ha molteplici significati: acqua morta, acqua melmosa dei fossati intorno ai castelli medioevali, ranuncolo delle paludi...
Ti vedevo correre sulle terrazze,
ti vedevo lottare contro il vento,
ti sanguinava il freddo sulle labbra.
E t'ho vista spezzarti e gioire d'essere morta oh più bella
della folgore, quando chiazza i vetri bianchi del tuo sangue.
Declinando l'estate ti screpolava d'un piacere monotono
disprezzavano l'ebbrezza incompiuta di vivere.
Qualche Poesia di Blaga Dimitrova
Qualche verso di Blaga Dimitrova!
Ringrazio Vera Q. per la segnalazione :)
"Hai freddo?" - mi hai chiesto
e mi hai stretto in un abbraccio.
In te rannicchiata con fiducia,
sono sbocciata appieno E quali
canti di uccelli d'oltremare ho udito!
Venti del sud iniziavano a soffiare.
E come un'amarena, ancora intimidita
Ho dato via i miei colori.
Dove sei, libero, oggi,
dopo avermi lasciata sola nella neve?
Incurante, non mi chiedi più:
Hai freddo? Adesso
Quell'inverno è intorno a me,
col gelo e un bianco deserto.
Ed io, amarena matura innanzi tempo,
tremo con le mie foglie bruciate.
Writing Portfolio Introduction In the words of George Eliot, "Nothing is so good as it seems beforehand." Indeed, that which is expected is never quite what it ends up being. Which is interesting considering that Mr. Eliot is actually the penname of Mary Anne Evans. A female writer, you ask? How wonderful! Rather, the irony lies in the fact that first, you thought she was a man; second, you thought she must be a rather fine, intellectual woman; and third, that it is now revealed to you that her large nose and thick cheekbones are rather masculine in nature anyway. So, what you expected wasn't exactly so, and even that wasn't what you expected after what you expected wasn'
