blisshunting: Hello :) Every once in a while tumblr proposes blogs on my dash that not only appeal to me but make me think, wow, this blogger has a beautiful soul. This morning was yours. I'm thankful. I hope this place is good for you and I wish you the very best in your creative endeavours. My world is richer with your contributions.


I propose that my soul is no more important and beautiful than your soul. My world is richer with YOUR contributions. I am thankful for that.




The Girl with the Orbison Tattoo, 2014
photo and text by Mark Laubenheimer
I love Roy Orbison so much, and when I found out she had an Orbison tattoo I just about cried. Having been through some tough times lately (Roy’s music always makes things better) I was so taken that this person, this girl I hardly knew, a person who seemed so different than me, so completely different than me, could share the same love I have for Roy Orbison. I asked her if I could photograph her tattoo and she said yes. So I went to the stereo, put on the k.d. lang cover of Crying, and photographed her Orbison tattoo.
I will never judge a person by how they look. I will never judge a person by the way they dress, or the way they don’t dress. I will never judge a person by how old they are, how young they are, or the color of their skin. I will never judge a person by the color of their hair. I will never judge a person by how big they are, or how small they are. The list goes on and on. I will never ever judge a person by the number of tattoos they have…because they just might have their very own Roy Orbison tattoo.

In a world so rapidly changing, how can we remain able to acknowledge and celebrate our differences yet at the same time continue to nurture and discover our similarities?
