if anyone wonders how Jesus raised the dead, don't try to explain the miracle. Kiss me on the lips. Like this. Like this.


As tumblr is the place I find out about most great things these days, I came across this fantastic reading of Rumi's "Like This" by Tilda Swinton (does Pinterest do audio, video, gifs?  If not, that's why I'll never be able to get into it like I'm into tumblr).  Apparently it's her favorite poem, and a company made a perfume called "Like This" after her and it.

One of my favorite books ever is Love Poems From God, which features Rumi poems, but I might have to get a book just of his one of these days.

Fragrance notes: Yellow mandarin, ginger, pumpkin accord, immortelle, Moroccan neroli, rose de Grasse, vetiver, heliotrope, and musk.

I don't know what half those things are, but of course I had to order a sample.  How could you not after listening to her!  I WANT TO SMELL LIKE HOW THAT SOUNDS.

Please let us know what you think of the scent! I'm curious about it having elements of pumpkin in it....

Wouldn't "Like this" make an amazing tattoo?

The pumpkin intrigued me too! Though I have no idea what pumpkin accord is.

And YES IT WOULD MAKE AN AMAZING TATTOO. I think putting it like on your wrist or your neck...some kind of pressure point/intimate place. (Is it weird that I think of wrists as intimate? It's probably because I've seen two many gifs of David Tennant kissing them.)
