“Easter and Oak Trees,” the earliest work of the Dutch photographer Bertien van Manen, unveils a collection of previously unpublished photographs—a rich and intimate record of unguarded familial moments captured by a young mother and nascent photographer. A look at the photos: http://nyr.kr/1e5Ovkw
I’m been shying away from people lately. This in part has to do with a lot of things that have been happening physically and mentally. Winters are rough on my body and with my trial starting in a month, I’ve been running on four panic attacks a day and a feeling of drowning. There is only so many…
It’s not about getting over her, it’s about getting over yourself enough to move on. I’ll never stop loving the one…
I know what you mean, but getting on that next train out is next to impossible when one has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I’v ehad relatives with that condition. I worry that this fellow’s only escape from his own mind might be suicide.

Time to leave on a note of perfect cuteness. See Ya!
Selecting shots for a show and I found this one that I hadn’t posted before. I actually emphasized the skin tone in this one. While there’s always going to be some polishing of an image with photoshop, I’ve never felt that skin should look unnatural.
Today’s Act of Kindness is Kindness to Animals.
As Albert Einstein, a pretty smart fellow, once said: “Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
Acts of kindness don’t stop with other people or even yourself, animals need your kindness too. If you’re looking for a few ideas of how you can be kind to our furry and feathered friends, drop by our blog.
The greatest kindnesses are sometimes those done quietly in the service of those that can never repay you. Animals may not be able to say ‘thank you,’ but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t thankful or that they don’t appreciate the same compassion and care that we all hope to receive - and that we all deserve.
So get out there and do some good for an animal in need today. You’ll thank yourself and the animals will thank you too.

Writers end up writing about their obsessions. Things that haunt them; things they can’t forget; stories they carry in their bodies waiting to be released.
The saddest thing I have ever watched

This is one of the saddest things i have read
It’s not often I see something like this and worry about the speaker. I worry for this guy. How can he ever get over her? I think this may be the saddest thing I’ve seen on Tumblr to date.
