About Amber

I was drawn to all the wrong things: I liked to drink, I was lazy, I didn’t have a god, politics, ideas, ideals. I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. It didn’t make for an interesting person. I didn’t want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone.”- Charles Bukowski

“He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.” -Benjamin Franklin

“Tears and fears and feeling proud to say ‘I love you’ right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, I’ve looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say I’ve changed.
Something’s lost but something’s gained in living every day.

I’ve looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know life at all.”

  1. Ridiculous photo and Wonderful song!

    I also love these lyrics from her:

    I am watching your chest rise and fall
    like the tides of my life
    and the rest of it all
    and your bones have been my bed frame
    and your flesh has been my pillow
    I’ve been waiting for sleep
    to offer up the deep with both hands

  2. That is my single favourite photo of all time!
