The other day I was a little disappointed by Beyoncé‘s Tumblr. I heard through the interwebs that she had new pics of Blue Ivy but it was a total bust! I raced to her tumblr and found some really amazing profile shots of little Blue. Bummer. I really wanted to see those cheeks! But I’m fine now. It’s fine. And I went back today hoping against hope that she’d heard my plea for a legitimate picture of baby Blue, but such was not the case. Still, I found something else that was kinda cool. Click inside to see what Beyoncé‘s been reading lately.
So, here’s what the actual post looks like:
And here’s the full quote from the late journalist/author Ray Stannard Baker (pen name, David Grayson):
The sense of wishing to be known only for what one really is, is like putting on an old easy comfortable garment. You are no longer afraid of anybody or anything. You say to yourself, ‘Here I am — just so ugly, dull, poor, beautiful, rich, interesting, amusing, ridiculous — take me or leave me.’ And how absolutely beautiful it is to be doing only what lies within your own capabilities and is part of your own nature. It is like a great burden rolled off a man’s back when he comes to want to appear nothing that he is not, to take out of life only what is truly his own.
Well, thanks Bey. I’ll even forgive you for writing out this awesome quote in orange marker, lmao! Love that bit about no longer wanting to appear to be anything that you’re not… that’s good stuff. Almost as good as a full-on face shot of Blue Ivy would have been. But I guess we’ll have to keep hope alive on that one :)
What do y’all think of Bey’s post?0
