just like the water | lauryn hill

Moving down the streams of my lifetime
Pulls the fascination in my sleeve
Cooling off the fire on my longing
Boiling off my cold within his heat

Melting down the walls of inhibition
Evaporating all of my fears
Baptizing me into complete submission
Dissolving my condition with his tears

He’s just like the water
I ain’t felt this way in years
He’s just like the water, the water
I ain’t felt this way in years

Coursing through my senses, he’s prevailing
Floating through the space of my design
Drowning me to find my inside sailing
Drinking in the mainstream of his mind

Filling up the cup of my emotions
Spilling over into all I do
If I only I could get lost in his ocean
Surviving on the thought of loving you

He’s just like the water
I ain’t felt this way in years, in years
He’s just like the water, the water
I ain’t felt this way in years

Bathing in the fountain of his essence
He causes my expression to remain
Humbled on a mountain by his presence
Washing my intentions with his name

Sealing off the floodgates of his passions
Saving all his liquid for his own
Moisturizing me to satisfaction
In my imagination, no, no

He’s pouring out his soul to me for hours and hours
Drawing out my nature with his hands
Yearning, I’m so thirsty for his power
Burning to be worthy of his land

He’s just like the water
I ain’t felt this way in years
He’s just like the water
I ain’t felt this way in years

Cleaning me, he’s purging me
And moving me around
He’s bathing me and he’s claiming me
And moving me around, around
And around and around and around

Watching me, claiming me
Moving me around
He’s purging me, he’s been cleaning me
And moving me around and around
And around, around, around

Moving me around

Incredibly, Some Guy Launched A Bouquet of Flowers Into Space

Some people feel the need to have something to say, especially when presented with a piece of creative work. Why did the artist do this? Why banzai trees and flowers, why space? What does it mean about art, about form? What is he trying to call upon, what is being appropriated? Blah, blah, blah. I don’t feel the need to say anything. This artist put two beautiful things together to make something doubly beautiful. What more can I say?

Oh, yeah- he calls it “Exobiotanica Space Flight”, which is the name of my David Bowie cover band.

Minimalist Mondays: Layered Ice Cubes
They’re just ordinary ice cubes, made with layers of fruit juices.  And they’re not just pretty, they actually have a purpose— as they melt, they flavor whatever you’ve plopped them into.  The drink below started out as just plain sparkling water.
These lovely ones from The View From Great Island happen to have three flavors, and we’d bet that our three Blends flavors — Coco, Hula, and Mango — would make a darling and delicious trio too. 
Here’s how it’s done. High-res
