This heart-warming display of affection took place in Port Lockroy, a natural harbour in the Antarctic Peninsula. It was captured on camera by professional photographer Silviu Ghetie. The pair stand hand in hand appearing to stare out at the dramatic vista of the frozen Antarctic landscape and even get the cold shoulder from a passerby. Then, still holding each other, they wander down to the icy waters and the rest of their friends.

     No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation.

Lost In Time, Melissa De La Cruz (via wonderingrocks)

"Bien sûr je te ferai mal. Bien sûr tu me feras mal. Bien sûr nous aurons mal. Mais ça, c’est la condition de l’existence. Se faire printemps, c’est prendre le risque de l’hiver. Se faire présent, c’est prendre le risque de l’absence… C’est à mon risque de peine que je connais ma joie."
