I live in an era of the 'not-so-fun', ofcourse only vicariously. Yet, how I wish the 1800's were revived. The particular time and age not only illustrated and put into perspective, what we stereotype as 'Fashion' today, the art then dripped out of every little turn around a block. It cried off of little wretched souls and the holy facades of all things natural.
Often synonymously known to be the Neo-Classicism/Romanticism/Impressionism Era, it feels like losing your soul to the surrealism that apparently breathed its first few only in the 1920's. Nonetheless, the power with which the 19th Century casts its spell on some, is one that will only either overplay or undermine its significance, so it's left for each to experience and instill as its own.

Today, I can only wish, 'cuz tomorrow what will be is still only a mystery..

"Some things are hard to write about. After something happens to you, you go to write it down, and either you over dramatize it, or underplay it, exaggerate the wrong parts or ignore the important ones. At any rate, you never write it quite the way you want to."
— Sylvia Plath

PS. With my very first post here, let my employ the 'herd' to give up, giving in! Follow you! Cuz' I swear to God, if I see one more cheap-run-of-the-mill-imitation of my aboriginal-anything-&-everything, somebody's gonna get hurt.(And NOT Russell Peters style, not this time! ;[ )

PPS. Keep posted to time-travel, only 'cuz there's a little story perpetuating in all of us.

Until then, hog on these and dreaaam.
