A compilation of memory, myth, meaning, language, image, heritage, spirit, and sacrilege, all for the sake of discovering that which is or can be my very own self-affirming truth.

Positive obsession
Blunts pain,
Diverts rage,
And engages each of us
In the greatest,
The most intense
Of our chosen struggles.

The years march forward, even as the seasons, days, hours, minutes and seconds cycle around, consistent with the rest of nature and other natural processes and cycles. That the years stack up and move into the future in only one direction gives us the very strategic illusion of progress and hierarchy over the “past” and no tangible access to the future. In a proper time period, past present future feed into and define each other dynamically. We have innate abilities that allow us to challenge the time structures they have indoctrinated us with.www.recurrenceplot.com

(via Lupita Nyong’o People magazine cover is further confirmation that dark and natural is beautiful | theGrio)

wait, what? did we actually need further confirmation? unless your a racist or self-hating internalized racist idiot, you already knew this and no further confirmation was needed. Especially not from “People” magazine.  foh.

Quote reblogged from eponymous with 72 notes

A new color. A totally alien, unique, nameless thing, half seen, half felt or…tasted. A blaze of something frightening, yet overwhelmingly, compelling.
Extinguished.
A half known mystery beautiful and complex. A deep, impossibly sensuous promise.
Broken.
Gone.
Dead.
— Octavia Butler, Lilith’s Brood (via butimnotbrilliant)
