Hi.

I'm M and I am a photographer from Minnesota. I'm naturally tall. I collect vintage cameras and sparkly jewelry and records. I shoot film. I'm a handstander and a treeclimber and a cartwheeler. I take photos most every day and I've made a resolution to document my life here.

I hope you like what you see!

If peace is really what you want, then you will choose peace. If peace mattered to you more than anything else and if you truly knew yourself to be spirit rather than a little me, you would remain nonreactive and absolutely alert when confronted with challenging people or situations. You would immediately accept the situation and thus become one with it rather than separate yourself from it. Then out of your alertness would come a response. Who you are (consciousness), not who you think you are (a small me), would be responding. It would be powerful and effective and would make no person or situation into an enemy.

— Eckhart Tolle (Visionsemerge)

Worst. Winter. Ever.

Sure, it’s nice NOW but what’s the big picture here? Potentially terrible, yeah? Or maybe not.

Minneapolis slam poet Michael Lee performs his moving piece “Pass On” in this subtle, elegant video. Lee’s poem is beautifully written and powerfully performed, and the video’s narrative is sad in all the right ways–not to mention meticulously well put-together. You’re almost certainly guaranteed goosebumps by the end of this video. Enjoy.

I knew him when he was little!

Oh. Right. That. Let’s all cross our fingers for no needles, yeah? #weenie (Taken with instagram)

True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.

And now, a bunch of guys called Miracles of Modern Science cover a Bon Jovi song in the voice of Bon Iver/Justin Vernon.

It’s amazingly well-done and about a minute long, press play. 

Loving this.
