Things

It’s 65, and all the windows are opened, it pretty much feels amazing.
My dog is laying next to me snoring.
I applied to teach a class a few nights a week. Hello extra money, hello nest egg, hello travel.
Life feels pretty good, finally.
Now if I could just get my eating under control.

I close my eyes.
There is a home inside here somewhere.
I remember.
It sinks slightly to the left.
My knees are covered in mud.
The trees have pushed into the living room,
sunflowers are rotting out the woodwork.
I have grown awkwardly into the floorboards.
They remind me that is okay.
I forget.
It keeps me full,
all this emptiness.
The windows are all open.
The hinges let go of every door.
I learn.
Trace the outline of each frame,
hear the echo of hollow footsteps:
“Love more,
love more,
love more.”
I have never been here before.
This is what it must be like;
beginning.
This is what it must be like; healing. (via christopherevan)

Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]

"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."

THIS IS AWFUL THAT PEOPLE SAID THESE THINGS! OMGoodness people—stop being so effing ignorant!!
