Love the scrumptious colours and backgrounds to this video of Rhiannia's latest song.... think my soft animal would like to feel like 'the only girl in the world'!
What does the soft animal of your body desire?
This is an exciting thought....i feel i've a very feline soft animal side to me...I want it all and i'd like it all my own way with as little responsibility as possible! i'd love to selfishly curl up on a warm surface and sleep when i want to...i'd love to play out in the fresh air rolling around in the leaves and slip in, through the cat flap, to my warm home with a meal prepared for me.I would love to revoke any responsibility toward others and please myself...oooh so completely different to how i operate on a day to day basis but an exciting thought...i like the thought of being able to be self sufficient having the ability to hunt and prowl around in the night slipping into others homes and having alies that also look after me by simply being cute! I have to be honest i sometimes find things such hard work my soft animal just wants a life with more soft flow time being inspired and spending time as i want ..........I soooooooooo desire this
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
