"Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval."

"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

Well, boxing is called “the sweet science”, so she probably Rocky’d that punk.

So one of my local friends linked this pattern on Facebook so now we’re both making it. Of course the first thing is to cast on 146 sts and I don’t want to. I hate casting on, but I’m in this with someone else so it must be done.

Myth As Object by Cameron Stalheim

"Stemming from my experience as a gay male from the Midwest and transitioning into the gay culture of the east coast, this sculpture, the first in a new series of work, questions the relationship between fantasy, reality and the objectification that happens in between." Amazing merman sculpture by artist Cameron Stalheim.

"1755 Doll" from the Gratitude Train

A. Reichert 

1949

This design by the furriers Blondell is credited as being a “Manon Lescaut” style. “Manon Lescaut”, published by Antoine Françoise Prévost in 1731 typifies the lyrical emotion of rococo literature and inspired several stage productions including a ballets and operas by Massenet and Puccini.

Another not good writing day

I managed about 800 words, 3/4 of a new chapter of my latest book. I’m going with 1500+/- on each chapter this time for pacing reasons. It’s working quite well at the moment.

I ended up reworking the cover for Electric Time to be more like the one for Child of Spring. I think it looks better now. Also worked on the homework for my covers class. It’s just a practice cover but I think it looks pretty good. I’ll post it after I turn it in.

Thoughts of cutting my hair are pretty serious. The hubby is dismayed—he likes my hair long best—but he’d never flat out tell me no. I think he dreads how it might look. I’ve had some epically sucktastic haircuts in the past. The Dorothy Hammel in high school and the shorn poodle look in senior year were… Well. There’s a reason I trust no hair stylists.

Still probably going to try it this weekend or next, depending on getting an appointment.

Tho coloring streaks in will likely have to wait at least 3 to 6 months. At best. I never have colored my hair. It’s so damn fine and fragile that I fear frying it even with semipermanent colors.

Plus the curls give it plenty of life.

I expect the period to hit tomorrow, Friday at the latest. Looking forward to it, frankly. I want my normal brain and temper back.

Tomorrow my goals are write, finish the formatting for Electric Time, do my homework and exercises (total miss today) and knitting (one row today).

Goodnight all!

Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts

Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.
