I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content. —Walt Whitman (via coffeeandlavender)

I am a positive person but I get really tired of aggressive optimism. If someone’s sad, let them be sad. All emotions have purpose. Sadness isn’t destructive if not prolonged. Sadness isn’t unproductive, as it offers awareness. Telling someone to “cheer up” or “be happy” is so ineffective and patronizing. The last thing a sad person needs is for someone to judge their feelings as pointless and unappealing. Welcome sadness, just don’t let it consume you.

Destruction/Creation by Chris Slabber

"Inspired by the works of Alberto Seveso, I created my own series of paint in water sculptures. These were exhibited at KKNK 2014 at a gallery called Art Karoo.The idea behind this series was to show that from Destruction comes Creation. As the paint falls there is a constant point of creation, but at the same time it destroys itself.”

What do I know of
downward motion?
The terminal velocity
of a hailstone: 31 mph.
A raindrop: 25 mph.
A golfball: 72 mph.
A shot pigeon: 98 mph.
A human being:

Last month when
I stood from where
she jumped and
could only see her
a bleeding statue,
the almost beauty
of it.

Her hair parted
with clean blood,
wet: a curtain
of moths pressed
like flowers against
her incendiary
flesh. Fluttering
with her paling

pulse. A body like
a ruptured lung.
A violent song
drawn from the spit
of an open mouth.
Watch the red
split into the cracks
of the street like
capillary fibers.

What do I know of
downward motion,
of bodies, bullets
cutting swiftly
through melted
cloud? Of plastic
bags in mangled
branches, filling

like doves in flight?
Of birds settling
on ice in cultivated
unison, heedless,
not believing
for a second
that their world
could part.

—Kristina Kutateladze, “Flight”

Terminator 2: Judgement Day


Jurassic Park (1993) Dir. Steven Spielberg

The world has just changed so radically, and we’re all running to catch up. I don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but look… Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?

Rape, By The Numbers.

everyone needs to see this graphic



I linked this to my guy friends who always use the excuse of “What about the false reports? It’s not fair that innocent men are accused of a crime they didn’t commit”

2 out of 1000. 0.02% Of all rapes are false.
