— Stephen King, The Body
Okay, ftr, I only blog once in a blue moon so there’s really no sensible reason why you should follow me anymore. Why? Because life gets in the way. And I really like how my life is going right now. I just go here to check who’s who and what’s new. So yeah. But you can message me if you want, or not. K.
OMFG THAT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL I [ALMOST] CRIED!!!! 😩😭
No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torsos twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
