The beautiful charm. The bright. The vibrant. The color that it spreads; and brings life to the deadest of things. This beautiful life that will withheld sentiment.
Anguish ,reminiscence , bliss I now hold at my fingertips. Its wonderfully silken gentleness, are now plucked & lay on the strenuous ground that also beckons for its touch. And is it done?
It is dead?
It's not...but this is fine...because this is anticipated.
And as this happens, something rises. Is it tension? Sadness? Adrenaline? ...Glee...Mirth... An ebullient laugh.
And this person starts to think, as the once lively lotus purple hazes.
This lotus as it has faded overtime; wanting to impale this comely beauty, freeze its time, the same as she wants to stop her own. This beauty becoming something only for her zealous eyes. Moving shriveled hands into a grasp, taking fresh life.
The lotus life shortened from the moments it is plucked from earth. The hard table that it sits on Waiting, the true living dead
Her wrinkles becoming kind and soft, as she watches. She observes carefully and blissfully, Scrutiny, watching and waiting.
Through this she cannot experiance the lives closes to her than a mere lotus.

Like a high-fashion version of a cultural-exchange program, Opening Ceremony features fashions from a different country each year, with Brazil, Germany, and the UK dominating recent racks. To accomplish this, owners Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, both expats from the corporate fashion world, live a consumer’s dream: They go to a new country and stay for a while to hang out and get the vibe. Then, they shop. Before leaving, the duo typically buys two seasons’ worth of collections from about ten designers, making sure to pick one power player and the rest relative unknowns. Lim and Leon don’t claim to represent the style of the regions they spotlight, and freely admit that the designers they pick only reflect their own taste. Luckily for New York shoppers, that taste is impeccable, skewing toward the type of playful avant-garde pieces that befit girls who hop from gallery opening to tapas bar to packed downtown club. As a concession to less-daring but still worldly shoppers, the loft area in the regal, opulent store is devoted to a more populist line from the highlighted country; fashion know-it-alls went nuts when they heard the space would spend the UK year devoted to Topshop, London’s version of H&M. — Kate Jacobs
Some of the nicest, if little discussed, benefits of using an Apple iPad tablet are that it starts instantly, resumes where you left off, and has a long enough battery life that you aren't constantly fretting about running out of juice or looking for a place to plug it in. And it can do a lot of things for which people use laptops.
What if somebody designed an actual laptop that worked this way—you know, a computer with a real keyboard and a larger screen that could run traditional computer software and store more files than an iPad? And what if it was almost as light and portable as an iPad? Well, somebody has, and that somebody is Apple itself.
The computer in question is the company's new MacBook Air, which went on sale last week, starting at $999—a price that's very low for an Apple laptop, though hardly a bargain for a Windows one. The new Air comes in two sizes. The base $999 model has an 11.6-inch screen (versus 9.7 inches for an iPad) and weighs 2.3 pounds (versus 1.5 pounds for an iPad). The larger—but still thin and light—model starts at $1,299, has a 13.3-inch screen, and weighs 2.9 pounds.
I've been testing both versions, but especially the 11.6-inch model, and I find that, despite a few drawbacks, they really do offer the different, more iPad-like experience Apple claims they do. Battery life is strong, and the wake up from sleep is almost instant, even after long periods of being unused.
Like their predecessors in the Air family, these are gorgeous, very thin and light, but very sturdy aluminum computers. And, like their predecessors, or like iPads and smartphones, they rely on solid-state storage—flash chips—instead of a conventional hard disk to hold all your files. But Apple has dramatically reduced the physical size of the flash storage to make room for larger sealed-in batteries, so battery life is longer. It has also cut the price from the last version of the Air, a 13-inch model that cost $1,799 with a solid-state drive....continue wsj
