"All through autumn
we hear a double voice: one
says everything is ripe;
the other says everything is dying.
The paradox is exquisite.
We feel what the Japanese call “aware”
— an almost untranslatable word meaning something
like “beauty tinged with sadness.”"

— Gretel Ehrlich,
The Solace of Open Spaces (via afroui)

"The Greek word for “return” is nostos. Algos means “suffering.” So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return."

"Of course I’ll hurt you.
Of course you’ll hurt me.
Of course we will hurt each other.
But this is the very condition of existence.
To become spring, means accepting
the risk of winter.
To become presence, means accepting
the risk of absence."

— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Manon, Ballerina (via afroui)

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to use their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



There’s a documentary about this on Netflix called Pink Ribbons, Inc. if anyone’s interested.
