Some recent photos from a music festival and my new home.
started off so terribly with oversleeping and failing to follow through on obligations, and feeling like a twisted up ol’ root. I took a sick day and paid a bunch of bills and finished up some work. I ate some leftovers and read about Ferguson and cried and cried till I fell asleep.
My country has been up to a lot of shit since I was old enough to know it was doin’ wrong but this is whole thing hits me in my heart and just kills me. Why? Why is it still this way? How? How is allowed to continue like this? This martial law, the violation our fundamental rights. I’m angry and ashamed and so, so impotent.
I’m this stupid priveledged white girl and I know nothing, nothing, of what its like in other parts of the country and what its like to be subject to this systemic bullshit our country can’t/won’t shake.
I once asked my friend why he was so angry, how his music was so angry, he looked at me like he couldn’t believe what I saying and replied “look at the world, the way it is - how can you not be angry?”
I’m looking at the world now, and I feel angry.
