women-drinking-tea

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

Temari was a good character.
She had an awesome attitude, and made fun of shikamaru when he started to cry like a little bitch…. 
And now in the novel/recent series, Temari cries like a little bitch!!!! 
WHAT HAPPENED!!!!

fan: she slapped shikamaru….
me: Ohhhh, you mean the bitch slap……T T 

I read the story, and all it comes off to me is making temari into some fangirl/groupie who is completely useless.. 
Shikatema could of happened without destroying temari’s character!!!… 

Whats even more sad is alot of shikatema fans like the fangirly temari!!!
WHAT THE HELL!! DO ANY OF YOU KNOW THE CHARACTERS!!??!

Again, thanks SP/novels for making me hate every moment with shikatema…
Whats next, you going to make temari into some house wife, get her to join the other women with drinking tea and goss—-

Photographic work coming out of Iran isn’t necessarily a rarity. But the vast majority of the work is either focused on political photo ops or, when it tries to go beyond that, depictions of anti-Western sentiments (billboards) or just street scenes filled with veiled women or men drinking tea and smoking hookahs. Francesca Manolino’s work is different, though. It is quiet, intimate and poetic. She traveled to Iran and went beyond the usual things we see. In Sight spoke to Manolino to find out how she did this.

Manolino said she was inspired to go to Iran some 10 years ago after seeing the movie “Persepolis.” In college, she studied anthropology, and Farsi calligraphy began to fascinate her. Later, when she was studying for a master’s degree in photography, she became enraptured by the work of the Iranian visual artist, Shirin Neshat. Fast-forward to last year when Manolino began following some Iranian photographers on Instagram.

Libyan Jewish women drinking tea in traditional clothes. Photo by Orr Shalom.

Tea drinking is a much-loved, often elaborate tradition in Libya. Family members sit cross-legged on a carpet to laugh, chat, and discuss life events over small glasses of tea. The tea is typically thick, and is served in three rounds; at the end of the third round, roasted peanuts and almonds are infused into the tea. The distinctly Libyan-Jewish striped fabric worn by the women in this photograph is usually adorned with heavy jewelry and fastened with a crescent-shaped brooch.
