Piccsy :: I would ask for still more

18 03 2013

I’d never heard of Rabindranath Tagore before I stumbled upon this image. A tad creepy, but the sentiments are gorgeous.

Piccsy :: picc.

I would ask for still more, if I had the sky with all its stars,
and the world with its endless riches; but I would be content with
the smallest corner of this earth if only she were mine.

Rabindranath Tagore

Piccsy :: To love a person

Piccsy :: To love a person.

Let me sing your song.

Bored Panda do it again! Great find on their excellent design blog. British engineer Simon Beck now spends his winters in Les Arcs, in France. There, he gets his exercise by donning snow shoes and treading out geometric designs he’s created on his computer.

I love this kind of because I can stuff. It’s inherently temporary, in that snow melts and can be covered over, or skied through. But it is such a commitment of time and energy… all an expression of internal drive and, I suppose, love of what you’re trying to achieve. When it’s done, if it ever truly is, then it has a limited time to be appreciated before it gets altered by the wind, or more snow, or other people.

There’s something intensely human about setting out on such a grand task with no real guarantee of success or lasting result. A little like love itself.

The science of love

7 12 2012

… how to fall in love

  • Find a complete stranger.
  • Reveal to each other intimate details about your lives for half an hour.
  • Then, stare deeply into each other’s eyes without talking for four minutes.

York psychologist, Professor Arthur Arun, has been studying why people fall in love.

He asked his subjects to carry out the above 3 steps and found that many of his couples felt deeply attracted after the 34 minute experiment. Two of his subjects later got married.

Oh, well THAT’s easy then!

The science of love.

Easier said than done, methinks!

No idea where this originally came from, but I found it on StumbleUpon.

Lolgle – Google+ – ✔ Share if you agree

13 10 2012

So I get these regular emails from Google telling me the “top 3 posts for me” (A little like a horoscope I reckon. Just for me…. and thousands of others with nothing better to do than click…)

It was a bit sugary and not even proper English:

Lolgle - Google+ - ✔ Share if you agree

Lolgle – Google+ – ✔ Share if you agree.

But, you know, when all’s said and done, it’s a fair enough comment.

Our lives continually intersect with other people. Some we feel an affinity with or distaste of and maybe create more than a passing acquaintance – positive or negative. Some we instantly forget. Some we detest. Some we love. Some love us. Sometimes it’s even the same person. Sometimes we both admit it out loud. (Often not.) Sometimes we can tell anyway.

And we deal with all of it. Sometimes well. Sometimes by crying.

Despite the shallow message in the original post, we do sometimes have a choice of who we spend our time with. Some of those who love us do it in expectation of something in return. Perhaps it’s sex (especially if they’re a bloke!), perhaps just returned affection. It’s not to say the love they offer is insincere, just “qualified”.

There are others though who will pour their love on you no matter what. A parent perhaps. A wife or husband if you’re lucky. An ex even.

Sometimes we all need to feel we matter… no matter what we did, who we are, or where we’ve been. Someone to tell us they love us anyway.

Are you an unconditional lover of someone?

Have you told them?

Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone….

OK – so forget the political angle on the original posting, and just concentrate on the human aspect in the photo. Whether it’s father/son, long lost friends, not-quite lovers, or rescued dog from the pound. Nothing says “I care – really”, like a great big hug.

A Nine Pound Hammer....or a woman like you, either one of these will do

You’ve got to show them that you care.

A very small degree of hope

Girls are like apples – Mere Ponderizations

14 02 2012

I saw this over on Mere Ponderizations, and was quite stuck by its depth. It’s purportedly from Pete Wentz, who the less trendy (or just slightly older) might not know is bassist in the band Fall Out Boy – currently on indefinite holiday. One of their best known ditties being “I don’t care” from 2008. Plainly, Pete’s an old softy and does really.
