Izakaya Kinoya | Jean de Lessard | Via

For its latest Kinoya, interior designer Jean de Lessard has tapped into the sources to emulate in his design the primary spirit, function and aesthetics of the izakaya, as the latter was originally an informal place where people drank beer and sake. The transformation is particularly unusual that it explores through extreme design intimacy in relationships between people, making of Kinoya a true representation of the unique approach the designer has developed about the different ways of occupying a space.

In the middle of the 19th century, the railroad was transforming America and connecting the continent for the first time. But this created an unexpected problem. The railroads were connecting all of these towns that maintained their own individual times, and each railroad ran on its own time. So to travel back then was a bit of an adventure.

A man named William Allen changed time to the world as we know it, after a 7-month campaign urging city councils to unite, with the introduction of time zones.

Special Sashimi

Special Sashimi is about the slaughter of dolphins in Japan. The story topicted in this book is true. Each year Japan fishermen

kill around 2,300 dolphins as a form of pest control, which has been accepted as tradition. And the killed dolphins end up in freezers

and served sashimi in Japan. Illustrated with hand-sewing and watercolor on fabric. With this book, I hope to spread the true and

help stop the senseless killing of the Taiji dolphins.


Art Direction : Paul Kepple, 2010

Material : Illustrated on fabric, Printed on paper

I don’t care what kind of blog I have I will blog this no matter what.

"Craving sensation: feeling unreal" was such a huge part of the beginning of my relapse. I was convinced that people in front of me didn’t even exist and I kept touching things and trying to feel sensation. I’m reblogging because I know that that was so horrifying for me and I never want anyone else to go through it. 

Just in case this can help someone. Some suggestions also seem harmful (eating a hot pepper really hurts!!!) but steps to feeling better and not self harming is most important. Sending you love and light

STOP SCROLLING! Please reblog this vitally important information because at least one of your followers is self-harming. Thank you!

WOAHHHH

You don’t need scars, you don’t need bruises, headaches or pain in the days following. Please - there are so many ways to fight this.

The 40+ scars on my leg are begging you to make positive changes and fight the urge to harm yourself, redirect the feelings

Fantastic tips for self-harmers.
