I decided to start this blog as my way to express my views, ideals, aesthetics and in general the way how I see life to like-minded and not so like-minded individuals. That being said, I am Goth and this is a blog about the beauty that lies in all things dark. By being dark and shadowed, many things, even profoundly beautiful, remain hidden from most eyes. I want to devote this blog to uncovering that dark beauty that can be found in least expected places, when you least hope to find it.
I will also use this blog to write about things I like - food, music, fashion, architecture, but also about the things that I don't like. By my doing so this blog will also become a certain sort of a reviewing spot, which will make it easier for people who discover their taste to be similar to mine, to find new cool things to try, visit, see.
I doubt there is possibly anyone here not familiar with the term ‘Gothic’, but never the less I will devote a few words to Gothic genre and how I perceive it. It is a very creative subculture and movement that became out of post punk lifestyle. Its adherents, typically, see beauty in all things dark and often forbidden. What seems to be macabre at a first glance can turn out to be very beautiful when you change the angle of perception.
Also, I would like to add that I will by no means limit Goth by what is considered "goth"nowadays. Inspiration comes from all places, the key is to look with open eyes, listen carefully and think with an open mind.
