Sometimes it's the fake happiness that allows us to get through until we encounter the real. The dress looks good on you. Do you think there is meaning to life? That life is meant to have meaning beyond what we learn and how we apply it?

la is right,this could be quite annoying, but they are just peoples thoughts.. these blogs are revolutionary. This one makes me feel sad inside i don't know why. and thank you for sharing so openly, i appreciate it, and hope the responses don't let you down. Do you have expectations even?

From this side of my computer screen I watch in amazment how beautiful moments fall effortlessly into place around you, its like poetry...has all this poetry become familliar? this why you are so sad? You are too beautiful for words...

I remeber this music from a scene of a movie from the 80 called LA BAMBA , a plane was blowing up in the sky , but can't understand the title of the song when Asia says it , was it Satin Johnny ? Sad Times Johnny or Sultan Johnny ?

you have to create your own fake happiness to be able to deal with the real unhappiness. this defence mechanisum is learnt from an early age. I have read about you and your relationship with your father. Fake happieness is compulsary for any child who has had to cope with a difficult father. I can say with confidence that your strength has come from this. I feel rotton inside when i think of all the pain and anguish my own father has inflicted on me. He has missed out on me. He has the loss. I have the corrage to love myself even if he dosen't. i see this in you Asia

i love that top, and what looks like old school underwear, mixed with victorian lace mixed with vixen chic. suits you.

21:42 18 Oct 2006

music was used in a movie called sleepwalkers. and this videodiary is like a scarlet diva revisited. the diva turned into a wife and loving mother who tries to enjoy herself in her sadness.

I've seen your pictures in the magazine. Having all this to show, but no one to truly see ya.... you're always dancin and always romancin... feelin crazy, getting older, but youre never alone, I see you come and go!! do you think youre smart, not smart enough? do you think you talk too much, not talkative enough?? do you think youre pretty, not pretty enough?? do you think, not enough??

first of all c.kane(i am a fashion ma student at central saint martins so i fuckin' know) has told u to advertise his own label. so , assuming u want to tell the truth, say it. please. do not tell u went to a shop and randomly found his stuff as long as his stuff is not in stores already. secondly I appreciate your sense of style and your aesthetic vision.most of all i like your photography work. so now, tell me, why are u boring us with whiny words about your presumed sickness and bullshits due to too much drugs? next time u 're making a so exciting project, that i strongly support, DUNNOT ruin it with sooo obvious / commercial / unusless / egocentric / masturbating / dodgy thoughs. thanks hope u think about it.i trust. will love margiela's.enjoyand take care of your doughta. ciao chicca
