Fence Sitting Eve

Hi "Big Daddy." So I hear you're the man.  I've never really met you in person so I don't know.

My One-Eyed Genie

I positioned the daruma in the most prominent spot on my makeshift dresser top shrine.

Please read the entire post linked below from “Beautybeyondbones.”  She is a beautiful young Christian lady with a great heart. Her perspective reflects God’s love and is thought provoking.  If you wonder what’s wrong with this world please read!

I swear, take a walk through the Lower East Side of New York, and you’ll get a better and more accurate depiction of the issues than even Buzzfeed will report.

And let’s be honest here: I love a good street art display. Banksy has taken the possibilities of a spray can from a crude gang tag, to a high concept art instillation. While all the while remaining anonymous…and dodging the law.

#goals…except the whole breaking the law part lol

But as I was heading out to meet up with my friends this past Friday night, I came across some graffiti that literally made me stop and take a picture.
