burns on forevermore that quenchless flame, shines on that inextinguishable light!"

When the world is bearing down on you, don’t forget to see the beauty that surrounds it. And try to dodge the train.

The next poem will be pulled
from the moonlight;
it will be a falling star
it will be a burning branch.

The next poem will climb down
from the mango tree while
I am dreaming and
sneak away before I wake.

The next poem I will plant
beneath my own skin,
I will stand beneath the rain,
the next poem will bloom.

The next poem I won’t even write
it will descend with the sun,
it will walk with me,
it will become my shadow.

"It only seemed appropriate to photograph the Arctic’s incredible natural beauty using a film that is no longer in existence." - Photographer Daniel Zvereff

Many photographers share a fascination with discontinued film stock—shooting on film that’s in danger of extinction seems to lend their work a rare, enchanted flavor. New York–based photographer Daniel Zvereff recently got a hold of some of the last remaining supply of expired Kodak Aerochrome film in 120 format, and he took it to the Arctic—a place as endangered as the film itself. In his photo series, mountains, graveyards, and highways in the brief, verdant Arctic summer are stained in otherworldly pinks and purples. More>

Life is here to break your heart over and over again
until you realize that heartbreak is life too.
And then your heart can no longer be broken.
Or fixed.
And you stand naked in front of life, moment by moment,
knowing that whatever happens is totally okay
even in the midst of perfect devastation,
which, of course, is devastating perfection.
This is freedom beyond the speaking of it.

Conflict is like the narrows of an hour glass; once you pass through this period of conflict, the universe opens up.
