Fuck The Bullshit

Ethereal currency This is a place to go to be celebrated, to be affirmed, to be empowered. I am committed to working to reflect the truth of life in words, images and ideas that uplift and empower, rather than confine and bring us down. My influences come from an array of sources. I don't want to be confined to just one thing~ Inspired by Constance C.R. White's NPR Interview and Grooveeffect mission Follow Me on Pinterest

My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.
