Miyajima Deer The deer are a symbol of Miyajima and you can see them elegantly wandering the island everywhere. The deer are sacred and believed to be a messenger of the gods in Shinto. They are treated very well by the locals and aren’t afraid of people.
I think the saddest thing about this is how alienated women are from each other. It’s almost like if you don’t have some physical insecurity, then you can’t “hang” with the ladies.
I have said to women, genuinely, “But you don’t need to wear makeup! You’re beautiful,” and they have responded with some variation of, “Well of course YOU would say that. You can get away without it. You don’t understand.” …..You know what? I DON’T understand! And I’ve really come to terms with that lately. And how ugly it is out there.
Going to the art supply store is so relaxing.
