Hedonism appeals

27 Jul

the idea that one can live a life based on pleasure is appealing, especially to someone like me who is an optimist :: which might sound strange from someone so into gothic music and culture, but the dark and powerful elements of goth are also uplifting …

just look at gothic architecture, those imposing and inspiring churches and cathedrals that can leave you in awe of their majesty … and yet invite you to understand and follow their message.

– the beautiful warmth of the sun is ‘true’ happiness – giving light and warmth to everyone and everything
– the brilliance of a new moon is ‘true’ passion – brightness surrounded by mystery and the unseen
