"She struggled with her sadness, but tried to conceal it, to divide it into smaller and smaller parts and scatter these in places she thought no one would find them."
Nicole Krauss, Great House (via witch-moon)
I wanted to share a bottle with you
But no wine is as warming
As your lips against mine
And your breath on my neck.
Alcohol, and other former lovers
Have left scars and bruises
On my arms and legs
Some that may never fade.
But you have left me sober
Yet flushed, and warm
The electricity of your love
The only stimulant I need.
"What happens when you get what you want and it still isn’t making you happy?"
Matt Weiner, on what season six is about (via madmendaily)
As much as I want to help bring shine a light to the plight of others in my humble attempts of writing and blogging about them, and as much as I want to show photographs or share stories of what they endure so people half way across the world have some realization of what is going on, I honestly just want to show them being resilient as hell. Because that’s how I remember them during my travels. People being resilient and resourceful and not complaining and just honestly getting shit done with no help of ours.
There are people in India studying for major exams all night with generator lights because of power outages.There are girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan fighting for their right to an education. There are young students in Africa leading amazing international relation initiatives. While people are busy feeling bad for them, there are people all over the world taking situations into their own hands and making something out of their lives. They don’t need our pity. Not one bit. They need resources and outlets to hone their ingenuity and talents, talents they cultivated with the most meager of assets and they are slaying their competition left and right.
