2. Painter painting in our land pictures of only white angels
    Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

    Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
    For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care

  11. "

    I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.

    ..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.

    “Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”

    I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..

    ..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”.

    A healthy vegan meal! Even if you’re not vegan you should try to incorporate vegan meals into your diet, whether it be a simple fruit smoothie in the morning or a vegan lunch/dinner. I’m vegetarian and I always try to make the first two meals of my day dairy-free as well as meat-free! 🌿

  13. I enjoy the most that you can tell so much about who someone is just by their style — the way they put fashion together. And I think fashion has been an outlet for me to express myself, to speak up, to say who I am and to be very loud about it at times, and I just like to have fun with it. “
