a lifestyle is what you pay for; a life is what pays you.
warm waffles and ice cream.
cats and humans have been partners for over ten thousand years. we may think we own them, but that's not the way it is. they simply allow us the pleasure of their company.

i like it when, over time, sharing meals together develops into a joyful and a trustful act, rather than the cursory fulfillment of social obligations
"The pain that cut my spirit loose...I will use this sharp pain to penetrate my daughter's tough skin and cut her tiger spirit loose. She will fight me, because this is the nature of two tigers. But I will win and give her my spirit, because this is the way a mother loves her daughter."―Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club 🐯🐯 #tigermom

I rarely need to be reminded how good looking this city can be... its best angle, without a doubt, is from a distance over calm waters.... #香港
(sharing a laugh with kru rong.. 🐒🐒 ) it is a common saying that women are delicate flowers or anything that may be crushed in a moment's carelessness. if I had ever believed it, I no longer did. #metoo #aimforzero
The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.. This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world.
We are so customed to disguise ourselves to others that, in the end, we become disguised to ourselves.— Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
"i was scared. but he told me, "if you fight and win, you will get some money." my family was poor back then, we didn't have much money. for the most part, we could only afford eggs. so i said, "okay, i will try it out." i was very nervous in the first round, my legs were shaking. but after the first round, i wasn't scared anymore, i just went along with my game plan. i won by decision. when i got that 100 baht ($3 ), i thought it was a lot. I felt very happy that I was able to make money. I gave it all to my grandmother. I put it in her hand and went to sleep." ―Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, 10 yrs old. (my savage world champion instructor is also the world's SWEETEST GRANDSON )

3 days without the gym and i feel like crap
outside, the city is changing... as you walk the street falls away behind you, the shop's burgundy awning lost within seconds. people move like ghosts, their voices disconnected from their bodies; as fast as they loom up they disappear again
beauty is character and expression... there is nothing in nature which has more character than the human body. in its strength and its grace it evokes the most varied images.
