Stepped outside of the office for a smoke break and ended up marching for housing haha. I still had my cup of tea in my hand as I was going. I left the people after the third desperate request for a sip (the mug was empty). Man these people had walked from Delft which is like 25km from the city centre (thank you Google Maps for improving my orientation, I still haven’t totally wrapped my head around Cape Town.) Man I hope and pray that God just like keeps empowering, renewing and sustaining them. Keep em in your thoughts, government has given them temporary shelters and they out there just asking for real shit with bricks and cement, damn.
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.
And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief. — Kahlil Gibran (via yanoss)
I, for one, just want to understand this ‘miserable condition’ first.
Sakaiminato is the hometown of manga cartoonist Shigeru Mizuki. A street of the town is dedicated to the ghosts, monsters and characters that appear in his stories, a hundred of bronze statues are on the both sides of the road. There is also a dedicated museum.
As expected, this is just the best album. “Game of Love” damn damn DAMN

I’ve posted about Daehyun Kim before. I really like these drawings so much. I especially like the last one.
This might sound a bit crazy, but sometimes just before I fall asleep I get the oddest feeling of like fluctuating between being too big and too small for my body, I don’t know how else to explain it other than maybe my inside ‘being’ is often in flux, but my outside is the same, and then before the panic sets in, I need to just calm myself and sit cross-legged mentally to like regroup and whoo-sahhhh myself with some perspective.
