Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Oh come! oh teach me nature to subdue,
Renounce my love, my life, myself — and you.
Fill my fond heart with God alone, for he
Alone can rival, can succeed to thee.

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd...

I really like the picture you chose for this entry. It reminds me of this other picture I like a lot. It is a design for a t shirt for this band The Mars Volta, only theirs is a bit more grim. Google it if you'd like!

I was wrong, it's a 30 seconds to mars t shirt. I was close. I really thought it was the mars volta, though. I remember it being a bit different, too. Mostly pink.. Hm.

I love the pic too. I like how the yellow is not bright but intense. And I don't even know what those circles in the background are for. Clouds? Anyway, it makes me think of an alternate reality. Awesome.
