How to get the beach body you’ve always dreamed of:
1. Go to a beach

I won’t, can’t, haven’t learned your rules
I have only the gestures, reactions, motions offered to me from books
I can’t function with your manners, rules, roles

I have been schooled by literature and movies, poems and novels, day dreams and desires
Please take a moment to sign these two petitions.
1) this petition is regarding the pending Ugandan ant-gay bill: http://www.avaaz.org/en/24_hours_to_stop_the_uganda_antigay_attack_nm/?fb_ud . If you haven’t heard of this it’s a bill that will give life sentences to homosexual people for being in gay relationships among other “crimes” and possibly the death penalty to “repeat offenders” or authority figures who engage in homosexual acts.
2) Nigeria’s similar bill that will give prison sentences for the simplest things like living with some one of the same-sex; supporting the idea of gay pride; or getting married to someone of the same-sex. Please sign this petition: http://www.allout.org/en/actions/nigeria-veto .
Thank you for taking the time to voice your opinions on these laws. <3 Love. Legalise it. Grow. Evolve. Love.

Isn’t she dreamy?
My hands always grasp for your
Don’t you know that glitter flakes are illuminated dust mites.
The perfume of you drifts eternally through my mind
calming, peaceful, pleasant.
I am happy, content; and my days smell delightful.
it doesn’t snow here, but it’s still pretty icy
melt me like a fruity ice lolly
in the summer’s heat.
Melt me with your glances and your words
Melt me with your heart and your arms
Warm up this winter heart.
