"I said, if I had wings of a dove
I would fly away and be at rest.
I would go far away and take refuge in the desert.
I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
For I have seen misery and wickedness on earth."
"And I summarize the whole world in the warmth of your shirt."
Got even sicker during the weekend, but thank goodness for make up and nose contouring ability.

"It will not be easy, but you will be able to forget many things once a certain amount of time has passed. Without a true self, though, a person cannot go on living. It is like the ground we stand on. Without the ground, we can build nothing."

In the Edo Period, up until the Meiji Restoration (1868-1912), married woman and some aristocrats, would dye their teeth black, called Ohaguro. At least in the Edo period, and amongst Geisha, this was considered a sign of beauty. This custom appears to have had an extremely long history in Japan, and may have originated in China. In 1870 this practice was banned by the Japanese Government and it gradually died out. Today, it can only be seen in the Geisha quarters of Kyoto.
