Read this aloud:

davykesey:

This is your reminder that you will probably only experience a few brief seasons in life where everything is good and okay. There will almost always be something going on in your life. You will almost always be busy, stressed, or tired. If you wait until you have your life together to accomplish your dreams, you will not accomplish your dreams.

All Ears,” Masha Tupitsyn, Entropy, May 8, 2014

You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

The thing about cultural appropriation is that the appropriator does not have to face the same consequences that we do for practicing our culture or faith. For them, it is an accessory that can be taken on or off at will, while for us, it is a way of life. …in a society where immigrants and communities of color are marginalized at every level, we can’t pretend that power relations do not exist when we have this conversation about appropriation. Sharing and exchanging cultural and spiritual practices is great, but it gets more complicated when we’re not all on equal footing. It gets more complicated when meaningful things are taken, commodified, and exploited for a profit, with little respect shown to the community they were taken from.
