Lately I’ve been feeling small and insignificant and discouraged by my own insecurity about everything… But then I get over it by reminding myself that a photo is not always about me and that’s ok.

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman (via iwannabehelenabonhamcarter)

My iPhone…

……. is just basically fucked since I updated the OSX. Internet browsing, apps not refreshing or even opening a lot of the time, battery absolutely useless (charging 2-3 times a day unless I leave it alone)…it feels like it’s regressed about 5 years.

Go apple.

Where to Buy a Motorcycle

"I spent four years studying to get a degree in law, and I’ve spent almost as long trying to find a job. Here, unless you’re the family of someone in government, nobody will hire you. I sold my last cow, and now my money is almost completely gone. I’m getting evicted so I’ll have no choice but to go back to the village with my grandparents. At least we have farms there. After all this time in school, I’ve almost forgotten how to dig.” (Kampala, Uganda)

Would make me a woman
And loving a man
Would make me bleed
A different kind of love.”

Sequentia - Edda - An Icelandic Saga - Myths From Medieval Iceland

from Amazon: Sequentia here performs a miracle of musical restoration, bringing to vibrant life medieval Icelandic texts about gods and heroes inhabiting a mythic past. Drawing on oral traditions and informed scholarly speculations about long-dead performing styles, they have come up with a hypnotic disc that startles with its power and beauties. The songs and recitations are interwoven with captivating fiddle tunes, and the singers wrench surprising emotions from the old texts. The late Barbara Thornton shines in her solos and duets, and Benjamin Bagby’s mesmerizing chanting, recitation, and singing brings us as close as we’re likely to get to sitting at the feet of the bards of old. An extraordinary disc that shouldn’t be missed. —Dan Davis

There is magic here. I’ve played this quietly around a campfire in the woods late at night, and wow.  ;)

“You know I’ve noticed a certain anti-intellectualism going around this country ever since around 1980, coincidentally enough. I was in Nashville, Tennessee last weekend and after the show I went to a waffle house and I’m sitting there and I’m eating and reading a book. I don’t know anybody, I’m alone, I’m eating and I’m reading a book. This waitress comes over to me (mocks chewing gum) ‘what you readin’ for?’…wow, I’ve never been asked that; not ‘What am I reading’, ‘What am I reading for?’ Well, goddamnit, you stumped me…I guess I read for a lot of reasons — the main one is so I don’t end up being a fuckin’ waffle waitress. Yeah, that would be pretty high on the list. Then this trucker in the booth next to me gets up, stands over me and says [mocks Southern drawl] ‘Well, looks like we got ourselves a readah’…aahh, what the fuck’s goin’ on? It’s like I walked into a Klan rally in a Boy George costume or something. Am I stepping out of some intellectual closet here? I read, there I said it. I feel better.”
