    Malaysia jet victims’ bodies arrive in Netherlands

    Two military transport planes carrying 40 coffins bearing victims of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 landed Wednesday in the southern city of Eindhoven, and pro-Russian rebels shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets in the east as fighting flared in the region.

    Six days after the Boeing 777 was shot down over the battlefields of eastern Ukraine, the first bodies finally arrived in the Netherlands, the country that bore the heaviest toll in the crash that killed all 298 passengers and crew.

    A Dutch Hercules C-130 that Dutch government spokesman Lodewijk Hekking says is carrying 16 coffins was closely followed by an Australian C-17 Globemaster plane carrying 24 coffins.

    Three years, and it still hurts. I love you, Amy.

    IN REMEMBRANCE: My beautiful Amy. 

    3 years since you passed and I still remember the first time I heard you walking past a CD store singing Frank. I was instantly smitten. 

    All day, 23 July, I’ll be listening to you and only you.

  10. Water, you are a lace wedding-gown
    I slip over my head, giving birth to my death.

    I wear you tightly as I burn –
                                          don’t make me come back.
    — Pascale Petit, from “What The Water Gave Me (VI)” (via awritersruminations)

    Time it took us
    To where the water was
    That’s what the water gave me
    And time goes quicker
    Between the two of us
    Oh, my love, don’t forsake me
    Take what the water gave me

  15. Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954; Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán.

    Perhaps best known for her self-portraits, Kahlo’s work is remembered for its “pain and passion”, and its intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.

    Her work has also been described as surrealist, and in 1938 André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo’s art as a “ribbon around a bomb”.

    During her lifetime, Frida created some 200 paintings, drawings and sketches related to her experiences in life, physical and emotional pain and her turbulent relationship with Diego. She produced 143 paintings, 55 of which are self-portraits. When asked why she painted so many self-portraits, Frida replied: “Because I am so often alone….because I am the subject I know best.” 

    She also stated, “I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.” (x)
