one wild and precious life

my greatest happiness would be
to hold the mysteries of the world
to love the questions themselves
to care without boundaries
to grab the hand of a stranger or friend
and listen to the laughter as we ran
through fields of wildflowers.

Valentine’s Day is Sunday, so if your constant is not flashing through time or stuck in the past on some crazy island, here are some images you can send to them to let them know just how special they are to you. It’ll fix that nasty nosebleed they’ve been having, and you might just save their life.
Roses are red, violets are blue, 4 8 15 16 23 42.
Ben would do anything for you. Not you, the island.
Here you’ll find some Jack Bauer valentines and a whole bunch of LOSTies too. (Claire, Locke, Ana Lucia, Sun, Jack, Sawyer, Hurley, Charlie, Desmond, Jin, Locke and Jack.) You’ll find two more (Sayid & Jack) here.

This is funny, because the other day I was talking to a high Mandy who thought she was randomly transporting places, and I told her she needed to find her constant so that she would not die.  Then Kristen said to me something along the lines of, “Would I be your constant?”
It was fantastic.



Yesss! ;)
Someday, we will find ourselves at that beach house, I’m confident.

Rolnik says that one of the greatest matters of shame is that the US has the resources to provide decent housing for everyone.


“In the US, it’s feasible to provide adequate housing for all. You have a lot of money, a lot of dollars available. You have a lot of expertise. This is a perfect setting to really embrace housing as a human right,” she said.

Well-said, Alex. I’m really thinking this through, too…

alexgone:

If you’ve been paying attention to the legislation on health care lately, then you’ve no doubt heard that abortion will not be covered in the public option.

At first the decision by democrats to rule out government insured abortions did not spark much interest in me, but upon thinking about it more I asked this question: How will refusing low-income families a safe, cheap pregnancy termination option benefit this country at all?

Will we really be that much more ‘moral’?

The 30 million or so uninsured folks are already struggling financially. It is unlikely legislation for abortion coverage would cause a significant rise in terminated pregnancies. What our government is really saying: Look, it’s legal for you to have an abortion, but we ourselves, the upper class elitists running this place, aren’t going to support you in it. Even if that means putting you in the hands of clinics that are under regulated, and even if it means reinforcing stigmas against those considering terminated pregnancies.

I’m glad the religious right still has such strong feelings towards abortion, while being completely unconcerned with questionable trade agreements, the inhumane treatment of farm-raised animals, and finding it necessary to properly educate and support our struggling classes.

Train Station, India

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos
"India seems to be constantly in motion, a country that continues to shift before your eyes. As travelers, we also seem to be on a pendulum, shifting back and forth through space, and often end up at hubs of transit. I took this photograph while waiting for a train in Rajasthan, India. The woman walking by was also on a journey, and our very different lives overlapped, for just a moment, in this transitional environment."
