Nothing like a week of hideous ‘fashion/artistic’ monstrosities to appreciate the proper shape and design and colour palettes of traditional Kimono. Even in the more meh* form.
*Meh being used here for nothing of interest colour wise. Predictable and safe contemporary and modern old lady colour usage.
I do admit that after a while the blue landscape has a bit more appeal than the pink ume-pine. A bit more thought went into using the blue as the sky of the landscape rather than ‘slap some common motif onto a pretty colour!” pink.
Formality wise these are pretty formal with silver and gold. Good standard Kimono to have around if you have one and only wear Kimono for fancy events.
What I need is a good defense ‘Cause I’m feeling’ like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed to the one I’ve sinned against
Because he’s all I ever knew of LOVE
Today is September 4th 2014. It has now been 8 years since the death of one of my greatest heroes.Steven Robert Irwin. In that time, and unlike what my comforting mother, and friends assured me, it has not become easier. In the years since his passing I have watched as animal media feed into the hands of the uneducated, sensationalist, and often even cruel TV show hosts only content in showcasing the brutality, and deadly aspects of wildlife. I have seen no one step up to the plate, no one fill that void he left in the world. Consider this an open letter, to all those as tragically in love with the natural world as I. Get out there, be loud, show your self and your love to the world, educate, experience, and just and just freaking live. We are but one species on what may be the most biodiverse planet in the universe. So get up, and make some damn noise, lose the fear, and show them what you love.
"Because people want to save, the things that they love."
We all miss you mate.
Follow for all things beautifully disturbed.
