Changing Worlds

"I'm not trying to change the world as much as I'm trying to stop the world from changing me."
-Jane Rule

Coming of Age

This photo series by Francesca Allen documents a teen girl's life. The images have a lot more depth to them than is usually allotted a teen girl.

“Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.”

Came across this at the Swiss Miss blog.

The poem Questionnaire by Wendell Barry is brilliant and brutally direct about the choices we make every day. The final stanza is the toughest:

5. State briefly the ideas, ideals, or hopes,
the energy sources, the kinds of security,
for which you would kill a child.
Name, please, the children whom
you would be willing to kill.
