If I am ignoring you, I apologize. I become distracted and will focus on one thing a while. Sometimes I’m just emotionally overwhelmed and I have to lay down for a while. I’m not ignoring you because it’s you it’s because life is distracting and hard and so sometimes I just need to stop talking to people and sometimes I do that suddenly.

Gives me hope for this world

This man on the bus is having a good talk with his son who apparently got in some of trouble. His son wants to live with his mom or grandma instead of him, and he’s trying to explain his life. He told him about giving up marijuana and his lifestyle, took several parenting classes so that he could be a better dad.
I’m trying to respect their privacy and not listen in anymore but dang dad, you go. It’s always great to see a parent who hasn’t struggled with that, but I think it’s just as good to see one that has fought through it all and has come out on the other side.

Taking a break from flute is so stinking difficult. So of course, a selfie is necessary.
I’m also trying to wait for nail polish to dry so that I can put my shoes on and go do something productive with my life.


If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”

Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.  

“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”

The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.

He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

I would love to exercise every night if I had that bike.

I would ride this for hours if it had the music playing too.

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.
