I find this picture slightly disturbing for some reason.

Actually I know why.

At the beginning of last summer I went to Quebec with my French class (of 2), mother, and teacher. One art gallery we went to had beautiful, gigantic, shocking photographs of damage after natural disasters, and the aftermath of Hiroshima. In the same gallery there was a room devoted to a collection of old cribs. they were old, with the paint peeling, set up in endless rows that reminded us all of a grave yard. There was just something about the room, the stillness, the lighting, especially after we’d been viewing these photographs heavy with loss, desperation and damage. Frankly, under different display circumstances (this exhibit had also been shown out of doors on a grassy lawn, arranged more randomly) it wouldn’t have given the same feeling at all, but that’s art. Juxtaposition is powerful. So powerful the peeling white paint, and emptiness still reminds me, and I recoil a bit.

Dear Tumblr,

It really bothers me when you don’t post queued items. I also dislike that searching for tags only sort of works. Please notify me when my posts are reblogged all the time, instead of just when you feel like it. I would also like you to try extra hard to add notes to the appropriate posts when people reblog and/or like something. Despite all of your shortcoming I quite enjoy working with you, so just think of this as a friendly reminder of what will make this relationship work best.

Love,

Kamilah

Sleep for Success: Creativity and the Neuroscience of Slumberi

When I say, “I love you,” it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman.
