Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hello everyone! =) First, i hope you’re having a great weekend! =) Second, thank you so much for the very nice comments and kind votes on my Absinthe entry. Thank you very much.

Yep, back to androgyny.=) Here’s another shirt by Ralp Lauren which is identical with the first one i wore only this is made of thicker/warmer fabric and the with smaller flowers. The jeans, oh this jeans are, i think my first ever Mango jeans! 4 yrs old. Worked hard and i can never throw it away. And i dont think i need to introduce THE ZOE boots as i know you know them well, it’s quite popular here and so again, i waited a little bit.

We saw 2012 last night and though the movie critic wasnt happy, the girls were, and pretty scared too. As for me, i am not more scared now than yesterday or the day before that. I have been worried for a few years. Some of you may have read what i wrote about me being a little bit f*cked up, getting stressed and down because of worrying too much about global warming, asteroids, hotel in space, digging the moon and other planets, robots, war because of religion/politics, Man’s capablities of being evil, the world being too crowded and the sun’s death etc. It all started when i saw United 93 (story about the only plane that didnt crash to it’s target-911) and followed by THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH by Mr. AL Gore. And you know what else followed- Hitler, Schindler’s list, Elizabeth 1 by the BBC (before the Hollywood Elizabeth 1 came out) and National Geographic/Wild, Discovery Channel and Science. I know, ignorance is bliss, what you dont know wont hurt you. But like the cat, we are curious. Curiosity led to me losing something i’ve had all my life (which my family still has and im totally happy about.) And Darwin didnt just make me realize that my Pekingese is stupid because of Evolution, he also made me realize that sleeping is a waste of time. And that shoes and bags and clothes arent the only things we should call beautiful, or fantastic… We were once in a rooftop bar one night, looking over the Caspian Sea, and the moon was right above it, perfect and beautiful and bright. And the water was shimmering and i squinted my eyes to make the vision blurry and it was beautiful, diamonds floating on the water.. And everytime we see a plastic bag being blown by the wind, like a lost balloon, we go “Ah, too much beauty in the world..” a line from the movie American Beauty. And up up it goes, wherever the wind takes it, it cant do anything…That too, for me, is beautiful… The wrinkles of my grandfather, his veins on his old hands…and his wise eyes-they’ve seen things i will never see-like the beautiful face of my grandmother (who died when i was 7 months old-i was the only grandchild she saw, she’d cry on the last couple of months because she couldnt even carry me, she’d just watch me from afar, then she was gone forever..) and the snow slowly covering evertything making the place a fairy tale, the sun set- when it finally kisses the mountains, the sound of the river, the crying of the chick on that nest up in the tree near our balcony, the sound of rain, the smell or wet soil and how fresh everything is after,the scattered pine cones on the ground, the sound of dried leaves under my feet, and my mother’s shouting…
So if you ask ME what 2012 did to me, nothing… it’s not a wake up call, ive been awake for many years (and it’s not easy) it just made me say thank you cuz maybe now, there are more people who care, who can start appreciating the smallest things thinking tomorrow might be 2012. Maybe i am no longer alone saying goodmorning sunshine…..

Have great sunday everyone! =)

Love Love Kiss Kiss
