Occupying the 8th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Goat (or Sheep) symbolizes such character traits as creativity, intelligence, dependability, and calmness. Comfortable being alone to ponder the workings of their inner minds, Goats enjoy being part of a group, but prefer the sidelines rather than the center. Their nurturing personality makes Goats excellent care-givers. They're quite and reserved because they spend much time absorbed in their thoughts.
Home and alone is where Goats feel most comfortable. There they can express themselves artistically, whether it's by painting, cooking or participating in whatever artistic endeavors they enjoy. Goats prefer the couch because there they can relax and explore their minds. They don't need elaborate furnishings; only items reflecting their desire for art.
When traveling or seeking entertainment, Goats prefer groups or venues that hold many people. G
AquariusAquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their different ways and have strong convictions, though as they seek truth above all things, they are usually honest enough to change their opinions, however firmly held, if evidence comes to light which persuades them that they have been mistaken. They have a breadth of vision that brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently they are unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view. This is because they can see the validity of the argument, even if they do not accept it themselves. They obey the Quaker exhortation to "Be open to truth, from whatever source it comes," and areAquarius5 years ago in Editorial More Like This

Hicimos temblar los espejos
y todos los relojes.
Yo llegué puntual a la cita
acarreando un cesto de frutas
tú forjaste mi lecho de Bella Durmiente
con plumón de almohada.
Una vez depositada entre tus nubes sintéticas
te diste a la tarea de elegir las mejores fresas
y las sembraste dulcemente en mi cabello.
La más carnosa la conservaste
para colocarla entre mis pechos
y temblé bajo el reverente roce de tus dedos.
Solo quedó a salvo la fresa que hacía de mi corazón
y esa la recogiste tú
para devorarla golosamente
y las nubes desaparecieron bajo mis pies
en aquella primera tarde de besos.
Contemplé en aquel enorme espejo
mi cuerpo como delicado instrumento oriental
vibrando entre tus dedos de relojero
y ese día maravilloso,
el más hermoso de mi vida,
sería, al mismo tiempo
mi bienvenida al mundo de las lágrimas
bajo la presión de tu boca
con vestigios de dulzura
de mi propio corazón.

How My Business WorksHow My Business Works3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My business works because it's actually not a business. And by this I mean I hardly make any money with my pictures. For me photography is not a way to make money but to invest money, and I work several other jobs to be able to pay for my art. I'm a tour guide on waste to energy plants and wastewater treatment facilities, I'm a concierge at the house I'm living, I work as a Photoshop instructor and on weekends I take care of the library of the University.
Sometimes people say to me: I can hardly believe you're not making money with your photos because they are better than the work of many professional photographers.
Of course it's flattering when somebody says something like that even if I don't always agree. But here's the thing: the very reason why I'm able to work on this level is because I don't have to make money with my pictures. If you're a photographer who wants to make a living out of it you are forced to do things differently. You have to focus on what your customers like and

Hey there, it's been awhile, do you remember me?
I guess you might not, since I wasn't very important to you.
You know, I spent so many days thinking about - what I did wrong
I questioned if maybe, I was at fault or if I was screwed up.
I thought a lot about the things you said...
The things that were my fault, my problems.
I took them to heart at first, but then I realised you were wrong.
I realised that you are selfish and ugly on the inside.
On the surface you pretended to care, but like a cancer;
You amputate someone the moment you think they've gone bad.
You hide from the rigours of life and only emerge like a parasite
When everything is good - when everything is fine and dandy.
I used to think that I was afraid of you leaving,
But now I know, that you've left me stronger than I was before.
You know, this was supposed to be an emotional whine; an emotional spill,
Maybe I was supposed to cry tears and beg you to come back, but you know wha

you give me every night to slay
your sword sharp as your tongue

protecting me as you lead me
your enlightenment flows through me
severed head conquering ego

What I wanted
I thought I knew
Big buildings with shadowy streets
Sci-fi devices used by starship captains
And a shiny sword to run through my enemies
But what I needed
I already had
You oh Lord, so full of light
Love from a steel eyed girl
And a daughter who triumphs where I have failed
I am the seasons
One with the earth
Spurts of springtime happiness
Fearless summer adventures
Melancholy colors in the autumn frost
And sadness covered in a winter coat
Its what I wanted

Here or there
Like drifting leaves
We stumble through this life
Heading towards our dreams
To find the course is broken
Instead we settle on nameless shores
Moving east when west our destination
History is all we know
What we've left behind fills the empty spaces
And what we did is all that makes us
A son, a daughter, a love, a wife,
the family we raised and raised us
A father walks the unknown paths
changing everything he touches
Change for good or bad?
It's the only choice he makes
The path you took which
led to me,
might not have been the
course intended, but you
made it good with Love and hope, and like a tree it
spreads it's branches,
forever reaching for the sun.
While never forgetting the roots where it came from.

to keep you sitting up straight

Don't you wanna see mom again
Tie your hair up tight

Smile with your teeth

So listen well child

A darkness descended,

Love isn't chocolates.
Love isn't distance.
Love isn't time.
Love isn't indifferent.
Love isn't ending.
Love is will,
Love is strength,
Love is when you find those brilliant moments when you think; "How did I end up here?"
Love is beautiful,
Love is fearful,
Love is joyful,
Love can be tearful.
Love can hurt,
Love can heal.
Love can make you decide whether it's fantasy or real.
Love is when every weekend, even after working almost a 12 hour shift, he will still drive to pick me up and get out the car to tell me he loves me.
I thought love was terrifying. After all that had happened to me.
Look now though my friends, I'm happy.
Love is not a valentine. Love is when he makes you feel happy when you're about to fall apart.
Another Hundred PeopleChatter. I hear my name mentioned a thousand times a day, but I am never truly sure if it is to me or at me. There isn't much of a difference anymore. You aren't listening and I have already forgotten your name. I'd forget mine too if I didn't hear it so often. Nowadays I just want to blow out the candles. Shhhh. Happy Birthday my love. We'll celebrate together in peace one day. Maybe then they'd leave us alone. I only want to talk to the people who I needn't say a word too. Don't make a sound. They just know. You just know.

I heard they found the invisible man, which is a shame really since he didn't want the attention. We enjoy being cellophane, for we are the Nameless. This much attention is not in our nature. We like to watch from shadowing sunsets, long tall and hunched. We ask for little more, only to be remembered. It is important we are not forgotten, as you are only truly dead when no one alive remembers you.
