The Rebirth of Fashion

When fashion takes a break it sits down and takes a picture.

Can You Dig It!

We cannot beg someone to stay if they want to leave and be with someone else. We have to admit that love doesn`t give us the license to own a person. This is what love means...Sacrifice... After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul, and you learn that love doesn`t mean leaning and company doesn`t mean security, and you begin to learn that kisses aren`t contracts and presents aren`t promises, and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. You learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow`s ground is to uncertain for plans. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So, plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure....that you really are strong, and you really do have worth.. Today seems to be the day, when so many people turn their heads, away in sorrow, trying to direct their life, but in confusion they turn and turn. Never let your past detect what your future must become, stand firm, hold your head up, and never allow them to see you fall. Always remember, life is a challenge, meet it. It is an opportunity, take it. Life is a journey, and you alone have to make it. The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but .. reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We`ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We`ve added years to life not life to years. We`ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We`ve done larger things, but not better things. We`ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We`ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We`ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big women and men with small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. Never judge a person for their mistakes, judge a person on how they fix them. The only genuine love worthy of a name is unconditional that's what I believe in!
