i was bad at seeing and reporting the sunsets when i was on my trip to nyc ! there was a really good one last night as our bus was leaving town, from manhattan, and i would see the orange clouds inbetween the skyscrapers at intersections, it was great.. i didnt get a picture because my phone was dead. anyway the climate march was great and it was an inspiring weekend for me, i met remi kanazi and got to connect w/ some friends too.. now im back in maine for a while, excited about a new project im working on, and hoping to catch all the sunsets again !!
tonight i failed on seeing the sunset :( i mean i was outside around 6:30pm so maybe i saw the beginning of it, in a sense.. i think it was gona be pretty similar to other recent sunsets: mostly clear sky, with a light gradient in the west. but i had an important dinner to catch ! i got to meet aamer rahman and talk a bunch, and then see his show.. very exciting for me, i really love his stand-up.. if you’re not familiar, i recommend searching “aamer rahman” on youtube and watchin a whole bunch
“The prison … functions ideologically as an abstract site into which undesirables are deposited, relieving us of the responsibility of thinking about the real issues afflicting those communities from which prisoners are drawn in such disproportionate numbers … It relieves us of the responsibility of seriously engaging with the problems of our society, especially those produced by racism and, increasingly, global capitalism.”—Angela Davis, “Are Prisons Obsolete?” (via chinesekleptocracy)
It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
I can’t have inebriated people hug me anymore I feel all their emotions Everything they are trying to hide Comes out of their aura Into my nervous system and it shakes me It fucking cripples me emotionally so bad I can’t callously hook up and forget It’s unfair every time And I can’t live…
Months of emotional abuse and gaslighting. Sexual assault. Hundreds of dollars owed to me of which I will likely never see a dime. Bringing up my eating disorder in a public post/attempt to clear his name/attempt to discredit/shame me?
I don’t want to be associated with him. I haven’t wanted to…
there’s been a bunch of bad stuff coming to light about abusive and creepy behavior from janey smith, who some of you may know from the online lit scene, he edits plain wrap press and hosts readings in san francisco. here is a facebook post by ian aleksander adams that discusses it, altho the information is scattered among different posts and some of them are deleted now. anyway i want to show support to brave ppl like alexandra for sharing their experiences in order to help protect others in the community from abuse. also alexandra is a cool poet and if u dont know her work u should check it out
todays sunset , i saw it from the window inside, and it seemed like just a soft cloudless gradient in the west, kinda subtle and nothing particulalry eye catching. then i walked outside and over to the river, and it was actually amazing, there were some pink clouds lit up on the opposite end of the sky, and also there was a half moon, and all of this reflecting on the water it was a good surprise . from within the house i wouldve judged this sunset to be un-remarkable but it was actually very good. here is an instagram video i took of the scene
