"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."
(Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

"I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to college soon. This should not matter. We should not have to prove Mike Brown was worthy of living. We should not have to account for the ways in which he is suitably respectable. We should not have to prove that his body did not deserve to be riddled with bullets. His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too."

More clothes shops from Shimokitazawa. I am unsure what the theme of this place is supposed to be. It’s in an indoor shopping mall, where behind me is a literal Disney theme booth.
Wandering in Shimokitazawa, one of Tokyo’s “cool” neighborhoods. In a clothing store, which frequently feels like shopping in 1990s middle America.
Morning coffee. I’ve thought about learning how to make the coffee art like this. But I also can’t help but think how ridiculous it is at the end of the day, to devote an entire craft to something consumed in a few minutes. A lifetime of food art!
Aesthetics in the cup each day! On the one hand, we want natural, real cooking- but also something that looks real. Real and beautiful.
Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh
Arthur’s Seat is the main peak of the group of hills in Scotland which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as “a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design”

"The tumult in the heart
keeps asking questions.
And then it stops and undertakes to answer
in the same tone of voice.
No one could tell the difference."
Elizabeth Bishop, “Conversation.” (via literarymiscellany)
