A thousand kisses (from a vampire)

Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred.
Then, another thousand, and a second hundred.
Then, yet another thousand, and a hundred.
Then, when we have counted up many thousands,
Let us shake the abacus, so that no one may know the number,
And become jealous when they see
How many kisses we have shared.
-Catullus, poem 5

Thanks for this picture goes to Susan, this picture is from her vintage post card collection.

Thierry Mugler, simply amazing

I see the past, the future, cabaret, circus, sci-fi, romance, femininity, power, erotica, amazing imagination and hours and hours of work. Marvelous and inspiring.
