"I was young I was so young it hurt like a knife
inside
because there was no alternative except to hide as long
as possible—
not in self-pity but with dismay at my limited chance:
trying to connect."

Charles Bukowski, “Friends Within The Darkness”
From You Get So Alone at Times

GIF-TY

Design concept for a camera that can print out a series of small prints to create a flipbook - video embedded below:

Via Yanko Design:

This unique camera allows you to print out short flipbook animations, so that you can physically keep the memories of precious moments alive in a fun way. GIF-TY’s Animations can be physically edited, and clipped on a separately designed module. Nametags can be attached to those clips just like old videotapes.

Technologically: GIF-TY is a combination of a burst-shot camera, and a ‘Zero-Ink’ Printer.

Coffee and banana bread (by Kristin Rosenau)

Coffee and banana bread (by Kristin Rosenau)

"She was breathing deeply, she forgot the cold, the weight of beings, the insane or static life, the long anguish of living or dying. After so many years running from fear, fleeing crazily, uselessly, she was finally coming to a halt. At the same time she seemed to be recovering her roots, and the sap rose anew in her body, which was no longer trembling. Pressing her whole belly against the parapet, leaning toward the wheeling sky, she was only waiting for her pounding heart to settle down, and for the silence to form in her. The last constellations of stars fell in bunches a little lower on the horizon of the desert, and stood motionless. Then, with an unbearable sweetness, the waters of the night began to fill her, submerging the cold, rising gradually to the center of her being, and overflowing wave upon wave to her moaning mouth. A moment later, the whole sky stretched out above her as she lay with her back against the cold earth."

"In a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe."

"‘Don’t wait for it,’ I said. ‘Create a world, your world. Alone. Stand alone. Create. And then the love will come to you, then it comes to you. It was only when I wrote my first book that the world I wanted to live opened up to me.’"
— Anais Nin (March 1933)
