Give me that dark moment I will carry it everywhere
like a mouthful of rain.

—Mary Oliver, Blue Pastures  (via thosehearts)
I thought of you and where you’d gone
And the world spins madly on.

"when i was thinking of becoming a pro at the age of 29, i did not understand the meaning of shooting wildlife completely,” photographer takayuki meakawa said. he characterized his shooting technique as immature. but while following polar bears in northern canada for three weeks, he realized he could empathize with the animals. “i was so moved when i saw their maternal love was so deep,” he said.

since then, his work, as he describes it, is an attempt to show the animals’ spirits. he typically decides on a species and researches it before heading into the wild. he then goes to a place where the animal is likely to be and settles there, waiting ten hours a day for as long as a month before getting a shot that best captures the animal.

(steve bloom has a similar series on maternal polar bear affection)

If this isn’t an entrance to a fairy world then I don’t know what is…

Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland, April 2014

We think of men as antiheroes, as capable of occupying an intense and fascinating moral grey area; of being able to fall, and rise, and fall again, but still be worthy of love on some fundamental level, because if it was the world and its failings that broke them, then we surely must owe them some sympathy. But women aren’t allowed to be broken by the world; or if we are, it’s the breaking that makes us villains. Wronged women turn into avenging furies, inhuman and monstrous: once we cross to the dark side, we become adversaries to be defeated, not lost souls in need of mending. Which is what happens, when you let benevolent sexism invest you in the idea that women are humanity’s moral guardians and men its native renegades: because if female goodness is only ever an inherent quality – something we’re born both with and to be – then once lost, it must necessarily be lost forever, a severed limb we can’t regrow. Whereas male goodness, by virtue of being an acquired quality – something bestowed through the kindness of women, earned through right action or learned through struggle – can just as necessarily be gained and lost multiple times without being tarnished, like a jewel we might pawn in hardship, and later reclaim.

Look at your stories - don’t just count who gets to be the hero and the villain (what kind of hero? what kind of villain?); count who gets the redemption arcs.

Chambre De Commerce | Jan Stel

The Chamber de Commerce alias Cdc is an absolutely fabulous Stock Exchange location, located in a busy city and surrounded by ugly concrete buildings. Only the four relative narrow passages are giving a small glimpse of what the inside of this beautiful queen has to shown. The current building is a reconstruction from 1872. The original building dates from 1531, this late Gothic styled stock market has been burned twice [1583 and 1858]. The CdC is built on top of an existing street intersection with originally no roof, only four covered streets, the still existing and impressive galleries. Around 1853 the square and galleries where covered with a dome modeled on the Crystal Palace in London.
