There is someone that I love even though I don’t approve of what he does. There is someone I accept though some of his thoughts and actions revolt me. There is someone I forgive though he hurts the people I love the most. That person is……me.”-C.S. Lewis
Side note, Mr. Lewis shouldn’t it say someone “whom I love…?!

"We have a really, really close relationship. [Eden] had seen the work I had done on strippers and knew that I wouldn’t portray her in a negative light. She’s really excited about the photos — she loves them, she understood the photographic process," [Alicia] Vera said on the phone.
The result is the photo essay above, which was shot in March over a period of a week. The full edit (containing photos we can’t publish here) can be seen on Vera’s website, along with a longer story about Eden.
"I was surprised by how businessy it was," said Alicia. "Most of the time she was bored, reading, writing, smoking and posting ads. I began to see it as just another job."

I just requested ~30 free brochures from an oklahoma travel website and I’m rather excited for them to show up! There were brochures on roadtrip ideas, best camping spots, most beautiful places in oklahoma, vineyards and wineries, state parks, and also some on just things to do in specific regions. ALL FREE.
A winery?! Interesting lol.
C.S. Lewis would definitely receive my first dead dinner guest invitation:
“Before leaving the question of divorce, I should like to distinguish two things which are very often confused. The Christian conception of marriage is one: the other is quite the different question—how far Christians, if they are voters or Members of Parliament, ought to try to force their views of marriage on the rest of the community by embodying them in the divorce laws. A great many people seem to think that if you are a Christian yourself you should try to make divorce difficult for every one. I do not think that. At least I know I should be very angry if the Mohammedans tried to prevent the rest of us from drinking wine. My own view is that the Churches should frankly recognize that the majority of the British people are not Christian and, therefore, cannot be expected to live Christian lives. There ought to be two distinct kinds of marriage: one governed by the State with rules enforced on all citizens, the other governed by the church with rules enforced by her on her own members. The distinction ought to be quite sharp, so that a man knows which couples are married in a Christian sense and which are not.”
