c-e-salazar:

Your heart is a ticking clock. i’ve heard it beating in the dark as we spoke of death & dying & what it means to be alive. You laugh because you think i’ve misjudged you. But i smile, because our conversation is like looking in a mirror & seeing something new for the first time.

Time winds on.

My eyes go to the window, as the day’s first light creeps in through the cracks. We speak of death & dying, but in this moment, we both know what it means to be alive.

Edie Nadelhaft : Oh My God

Better Living Thru Chemistry is a limited edition sculpture series consisting of over-sized glass and mixed media capsule-shaped objects emblazoned with text messages, abbreviations, acronyms and slang. A snarky commentary on our over-medicated society, Edie was inspired in equal parts by the ubiquitous presence of social media in contemporary culture and the simultaneous rise of direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical marketing. This collection pokes fun at the alternately amusing and depressing correlations between the two phenomena as both are enlisted to over-simplify the human condition and expedite contentment.

"The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person."
