Treasure Island

Vanessa Hernandez

(06-20-1994 / Bejing)

Oh God, Where are you?

hands clasped, eyes closed,
heads bowed in respect
everyone stood there
chanting a prayer within;

watching them from a distance
i could not comprehend the
need for such intricate
and passionate devotion;

stood there myself,
a long long time ago
unable to think of anything and
perplexed on what am i supposed to do?

i once stood there,
eyes closed, hands clasped
trying hard to understand
what the fuss was about;

watching the rituals and
the strange and bizzare acts of faith
pushed me into a corner
and forced me to question it all;

twelve years have passed,
countless theories and barrage of opinions
with more questions and very few answers
maybe it is safe to say god is an enigma!

    Classic Ray-Ban - the Wayfarer and the Aviator
    The two most imitated sunglasses in the globe are Ray-Bans - the Aviator and Wayfarer.
    The name of the Aviator sunglasses arose because of the oblique teardropp shape of the lens. Naval aviators found that the oversized sunglasses would help to hide the white skin under their eyes caused by wearing goggles during flying. The bar across the nose also held a cigarette in place.Aviators sunglasses are designed to cover the entire eye and to stop sunlight reaching the eyes from the side of the glasses.
    In 1952, sunglass designer Raymond Stegeman invented the Wayfarer for Baush and Lomb. The first pair of eyewear to use plastic, it was a radical new look.Like the Avaitors, the Wayfarer was originally marketed to be used by pilots. But as female celebrities such as Kim Novak and Marilyn Munroe began to photographed wearing the new eyewear, the glasses quickly became popular among women. Audrey Hepburn wore a pair in the movie 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', furthering the sunglasses popularity. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
