Sleep Paralysis

On this lazy afternoon, I just had the chance to watch “Inception”, which was hailed as 2010 movie of the summer.

It was brilliantly made and it has a plot that was never, ever used before  which is about “a dream within in a dream”.

Marilyn Monroe

“She’s the most iconic female personality in the world. She’s timeless”. She sure is. Who could forget that image of her standing on a subway grate as her dress is blown above her knees by a passing train; this said image I keep as one of my Iphone wallpapers. I also have an image of her face which I cross-stitched and framed. It now hangs by the headboard of my bedroom.
