First of a three-part series of spreads of my take on Rapunzel set in India. The book is geared toward a younger audience so I went with younger protagonists as well!
"I would have preferred this writer explore these ideas" is an opinion.
"This writer has trouble with certain aspects of story-telling" is a criticism.
"This writer sucks and is talentless" is a mean-spirited insult.
"This writer should die" is a vile, shitty thing for which there is no excuse for saying.
Please learn the difference and please don’t pretend you’re doing one of the two former when you’re doing one of the two latter.
We don’t care how manly you are you’re probably still going awwww.

Albert Camus - (1913-1960) Oh Albie, you heartbreaker you! </3 </3
French existentialist philosophers Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sarte are hailed as having two of the greatest minds in history. We could debate all day who was more influential or whose works were better, but Camus was hands down the hottest. Their minds might be equally great but look at that body!
This tall drink of Mediterranean sun tea brought us The Stranger, The Plague, The Myth of Sisyphus, and many more, examining the absurd and the human condition. Though his truths may be dark, his hot bod and brilliant mind fill my heart with sunshine.

From The Dispatch - July 10, 1963 l by: Danny Kaye
EDITOR’S NOTE: Comedian Danny Kaye has been attending the Moscow film festival as an American ambassador of good will. In the following exclusive dispatch, he tells of sharing laughter with the Russians.
[… ] Even though the children and I could not talk to each other, I found that behaving like a child with children made for immediate communication.
We played games, sang songs, and danced together. It could have happened anywhere in the world.
It leaves me with the hope that someday, somehow, our children will grow up in a peaceful, happy world.
