”Katie Harris is photographed with her Appaloosa. Harris made most of the horse trappings as well as her own traditional outfits herself, including the bead work. Some of the trappings are passed down from older generations but the girls like to make their own to continue the tradition.”  Erika Larsen: In search of a horse, National Geographic

The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 



If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 
via Vice:

What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:

1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.
2. You are getting arrested. 
3. You are getting beaten by the police.

In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.



In which the NYPD’s attempt at “public relations” backfires tremendously.

The Waiting

semperaugustus:

I waited for you calmly with infinite patience.
I waited for you hungrily, just short of desperate.

When you came I knew that desperate was unattractive.
I was calm, no one wants the kind of calm I was.

It tried your patience, it made you hungry for a man
who was hungry. I am that man I said,

but I said it calmly. My body was an ache, a silence.
It could not affirm how long it had waited for you.

It could not claw or insist or extend its hands.
It was just a stupid body, closed up and voracious.

—Stephen Dunn, from The Insistence of Beauty

“Follow the river and you will find the sea.”
— French Proverb (via soul-surfer)

Moving Forward

The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now,
that I can see farther into paintings.
I feel closer to what language can’t reach.
With my senses, as with birds, I climb
Into the windy heaven, out of the oak,
And in the ponds broken off from the sky
My feeling sinks, as if standing on fishes.

Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Robert Bly

apoetreflects:

We might hurt each other if we were
together; but apart, we should be hurt
much more and to less purpose.

—Sidney Keyes, in a letter, used also as an epigraph for David St. John’s The Shore.

“He closed his eyes, surrendering himself to her, body and mind, conscious of nothing in the world but the dark pressure of her softly parting lips. They pressed upon his brain as upon his lips as though they were the vehicle of a vague speech; and between them he felt an unknown and timid pressure, darker than the swoon of sin, softer than sound or odour.”
— James Joyce, The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (via awritersruminations)
“I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest.”
— Azra.T “Don’t Wait Three Days to Text First.” (via windwrinkle) | full quote (via hat2dabak)

For Blue Skies

Strays Don't Sleep — Strays Don't Sleep

Listen

platonic-x:

strays don’t sleep - for blue skies

I never believed you
I only wanted to
Before all of this
What did I miss?
Do you ever get homesick?
I can’t get used to it
I can’t get used to it
I’ll never get used to it
