The Libertine

A public blog that features a compilation of exceptional artists' works; serendipitously discovered by a secret admirer. The ongoing overtones of the production frequently include evocative imagery, passionate emotions, pure beauty and raw exprience (to name a few themes). Our content is composed of artistic expressions, fashion editorials, promising talents, diverse bodies, freedom for all, love forever and the eternal search for truth in the visceral …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… (SUBMISSIONS TO satietypaper@gmail.com)

The Talented Mr. Meisel

Nothing like a day at the beach… with a friend…partially naked… and rolling around…in couture! Yep, sounds like summer to me

To Some Great Spirit Creator…Whomever You May Be

GRACE:
 
My courage is a whisper,
My conviction comes and goes,
My love does not move mountains,
I’m consumed by human lows…
I’m clumsy with my blessings,
I stumble through my chores,
My virtue is not spotless,
My only glory’s yours.
 
When the landscape seems uncertain;
Full of snares and sin,
My eyes lose sight of sunlight
My faith is sometimes thin…
 
Still I rise each day with purpose;
Share gifts that I possess,
Greet each stranger with a smile,
Meet hate with tenderness.
I try to choose the right from wrong;
Resist boasts when I speak,
I try to walk a steady path,
Though at times my will is weak.
I try to lead with goodness
When the choice is mine to make,
I try to hold a humble heart
And give more than I take. 
 
 
I lift my eyes towards the stars
When I don’t know who I am,
For the strength to be a lion 
And the grace to be a lamb…
Inhaling breeze in times of pain,
when my heart is dark with doubt,
I feel some universal love
and breath the sorrow out
The oceans flow beneath my feet,
The forests creak and sway,
the mountains tower around my ears,
the fields sag low with hay,
Behind the doors,
Inside the walls,
Below the windows,
Down the halls…
We feed our children and tuck them in,
We share our sacred lives,
We hold our husbands in our beds
We caress our precious wives,
We steal our private moments,
We confess our secret woes,
We do the daily living
And the worldly loving flows…

Short Film – Levi’s “Go Forth”

I LOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEE this freakin’ video. I wish more of our fashion industry would head in this direction. It’s so unique to see beauty with a soul these days. Sometimes, I get bummed out by fashion blogging because that can be so hard to find. So much of fashion seems truly ‘soul-less’ ; vacant eyed, vaguely hungry models paraded around in seemingly ‘who can be more bazaar’ designs with no real magic…
Thank you Levi’s for setting your advertising to such a lovely tone. In honor of this new leaf, I am wearing my beloved 501’s today!!! xoxo
