Yesterday when walking to class I saw a girl step into the grass and feel a tree. She laughed and continued walking on. A girl walking the opposite direction looked at the first girl and then walked past with a look of annoyance and confusion on her face.
There needs to be more people like the former, and less like the latter.
“Oh! The dream, the dream!
My sturdy gilded wagon
Has broken down
Its wheels have scattered like gypsies everywhere.
One night I dream of spring
And when I woke
Flowers had covered my pillow.
I dreamt once of the sea
And in the morning
My bed was full of shells and fins of fishes
But when I dreamt of freedom
Spears were surrounding my neck
Like the morning halo.
From now on you will not find me
In ports or among trains
But there … in public libraries
Falling asleep over the maps of the world
(As the orphan sleeps on the pavement)
Where my lips touch more than one river
And my tears stream
From continent to continent.”—The Orphan by Muhammad Al-Maghout
Arabic – Both morbid and beautiful at once, this incantatory word means “You bury me,” a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it would be to live without them.
Arabic is one of the most beautiful languages ever. I think it’s more beautiful than French.
it’s not about tumblr, i just post chapters to tumblr. hopefully i’ll update it once a week, so read what’s there, and tell me what you think. the only thing unfortunate about this is you have to read the posts from the end of the blog to the beginning because whatever is the most recent gets posted at the top. but you know how blogs work.
But I never liked the term “plus-sized model.” Why are they plus-sized? I thought they were regular sized. Maybe I’m splitting hairs or being ignorant to something, who knows. I’m curious to hear what other people think.
“Cause I want to build my bones into cribs and lay my reluctance to rest.
Test what it would be like to live phonetically, to hold you unapologetically.
To plant a giving tree on my front lawn, so that when you’re gone
It can give you back to me.”—Shane Koyczan
And I can honestly say, making crafts is awesome. Like, taking an assortment of crap and putting it together in a certain way to make something awesome and usable and pretty is a damn good hobby to have.
