You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion.

I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite.

The Cadaver Synod (also called the Cadaver Trial or, in Latin, the Synodus Horrenda) is the name commonly given to the posthumous ecclesiastical trial of Catholic Pope Formosus, held in the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome during January of 897. The trial was conducted by Formosus’s successor, Pope Stephen (VI) VII. Stephen accused Formosus of perjury and of having acceded to the papacy illegally. At the end of the trial, Formosus was pronounced guilty and his papacy retroactively declared null. The Cadaver Synod is remembered as one of the most bizarre episodes in the history of the medieval papacy.
Last week I booked my flight and the accommodation for my holidays in Istanbul. Today my best friend and I decided going to Paris in March! I can’t wait to travel again and see two of the most beautiful and exciting cities of Europe within one month. <3 Both holidays will be legendary! In Istanbul I’m visiting one of my closest friends and will attend at her engagement party. I’m so excited to experience a Turkish engagement party!
