Smiley Face T-Shirt from Nepal

Happy Death Mask, Nepal
Originally uploaded by Wonderlane
I once had a t-shirt from Nepal which I really liked but lost to an ex (fortunately, the dog refused to go). I've been trying ever since to find another one without having to go to Kathmandu. Not that I wouldn't love to, it's just an opportunity to do so is not in the foreseeable future.

This gorgeous "Happy Death Mask" is obviously the design used to come up with the smiley face t-shirt I had. If anyone should happen to come across one, please, please, let me know!

To Virgins, to Make Much of Time

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry;
For, having lost but once your prime,
You may forever tarry.
