I don’t believe in only photographing aesthetically pleasing books. Whilst book design is a deep seated love of mine, it’s the content that matters. This book is about failure. Books about failure help remind me that failure isn’t the opposite of success: it’s part of it.

I didn’t have time yesterday to reply to them all but I will today and tomorrow (there was a lot of them!) I really appreciate it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams..." ― Roald Dahl, The Twits⠀
Thanks for the reminder @markshayler
It's been forever since I'm trying to save the already dying relationships, running after people, being misunderstood even though I stood by them always, apologizing for not being wrong, hearing complaints about myself and all that stuff.But now, I'm tired of trying it all alone, with apparently no efforts from the other side, tired of feeling that my efforts prove out to be worthless, so much so that I feel I'm done now.
I have realized that you can't make people stay if they don't want to "watering a steady dead plant won't make it alive so trying to save a dead relationship won't get that spark
I cried I yelled I proved myself but still you questioned my existence why ? What was my mistake loving you ? Or being attached to you ? What was my mistake that you left me all alone but now you are back with that silly excuse oh man do you really think this matters to me know?okay I would let you in again but then you will keep that mask with you forever don't you ?
All I want to say is thank you for telling me my worth , telling me that I trusted a wrong person they said any relation would lead to an end if only one person is putting efforts so here is ours and somewhere you never wanted to stay !

Hello guys i have no personal experience with bulimia and this is just something it may feel like #writing #poetry
is passionate about writing, journaling, gardening and collage. Today she shared with Fremont Area Writers how to recognize the power of happenstance in everyday life. It was happenstance, for example, that she got the the opportunity to speak at this event today. As you go about your daily life, notice the things that seem to happen by chance. And then embrace the creative energy you can get simply by paying attention.

as inevitable as the seasons,
as unpredictable as the sea tides,
but with such, also ushers in,
new thoughts, possibilities, encounters,
dreams, explorations, expansions.
Comfort may lie in the known,
but working through challenges birth transformations.
Dipinto di Henri Lebasque. Bellissima poesia di Pavese, 'Mattino'.
La finestra socchiusa contiene un volto
sopra il campo del mare. I capelli vaghi
accompagnano il tenero ritmo del mare.
Non ci sono ricordi su questo viso.
Solo un’ombra fuggevole, come di nube.
L’ombra è umida e dolce come la sabbia
di una cavità intatta, sotto il crepuscolo.
Non ci sono ricordi. Solo un sussurro
che è la voce del mare fatta ricordo.
Nel crepuscolo l’acqua molle dell’alba
che s’imbeve di luce, rischiara il viso.
Ogni giorno è un miracolo senza tempo,
sotto il sole: una luce salsa l’impregna
e un sapore di frutto marino vivo.
Non esiste ricordo su questo viso.
Non esiste parola che lo contenga
o accomuni alle cose passate. Ieri,
dalla breve finestra è svanito come
svanirà tra un istante, senza tristezza
né parole umane, sul campo del mare.
Cesare Pavese [9-18 agosto 1940]
da “Lavorare stanca”, 1936-1943

¿Cómo navegamos entre las diversas realidades, cuyas calles rugen en comercios de memoria? Recalcan la gula con estrangulado malestar mientras los pasos exprimen calamidad a su huella. Seamos honestos, que la sonrisa es armamento de afable discurso, que la sed prela con el hambre y las entrañas no son más que una burbuja irónica de retención. ¿En dónde queda la entera sinceridad? Si la carne se palpa y la lengua cuelga como corbata de diplomático. Vayamos a prisión, escuela inaudita de uniformidad, rayado horizontal y en el final del océano una ventana hacia la estupefacción. Colguemos plomo en los tobillos, con alergia a las palabras también saludaremos a la bandera como un día más, el día de la independencia.
~ Every piece is still as alive as you are 🖤
While you are all absorbed in your pain and suffering, you might not even have a slightest of the idea what other person might have been going through... Sometimes only because they keep a hard facade... Never talk about their feelings... Maybe because, they feel to be misunderstood... Or they might feel they aren't taken enough care to be understood from their perspective. There's a lot they keep to themselves. Anyone in that phase deserves an applaud, they are the real heroes, saving themselves in every day battle, knowing that there are people on the other end constantly judging them ruthlessly.

// Für uns geht es jetzt zu einem Geburtstagsfrühstück zu den Verwandten meines Freundes. Später geht’s wieder aufs Wasser, genauer gesagt aufs Boot! 🚤 Das Wetter muss man ausnutzen, den in der Woche wird es dafür keine Zeit geben. Meine kommende Woche ist voll bis oben hin 🙈 aber nur mit positiven Sachen wie feiern, Lettertreffen und Besuch bekommen von lieben Menschen 🤗 ich freu mich! Habt einen wunderschönen Tag. 💙
What allows us to think as a writer are the moments of serinety , sometimes they seem bipolar sometimes Crystal clear in the face of reality , but writing is never our imagination it always has just the right hint of reality of the writer camouflaged in the write-up

Beauty is subjective.Period.
Beauty comes in all colours and size.
The idea of ' what beauty is ' is kind of a really old way of thinking and I believe it is time that we lose that. Our society is becoming more accepting and more tolerant day by day. Along with us the definition of beauty is changing as well. Hopefully this change empowers everyone regardless of who they are, where they are and what they are.
