Allan Wexler.
Coffee Seeks Its Own Level. 1990. If one person alone lifts his cup, coffee overflows the other three cups. All four people need to coordinate their actions and lift simultaneously. Inspired by the principle “water seeks its own level”. I had been working on a series of projects using basic scientific principles learned in high school as a means to explore architectural issues.

Stop Doodling on Your Cast & Be Brave Enough to Heal

You say THE cancer
Not MY cancer
You say I have influenza
Not I AM influenza

You are not your illness
Whether it’s effects are skin deep
Or hidden within your mind

Say THE depression THE anxiety THE eating disorder
Not my depression
Not my anxiety
Not my eating disorder
It will sound funny at first
Both your tongue and ears will adjust

Quit naming your demons
And inviting them into your warm bed like they are your pet cat
Quit inviting your demons to supper at your house
And giving them the fresh fruit from your garden on your great great grandmothers fine china
They are not your friends
They are not your family
They do not want the best for you

Take your pills
Step outside even if one step is all you can take
Eat your vegetables and keep them inside you
Let instead the rays of sun it took to grow them warm your belly and heart and the light will overflow from the inside out

For goodness sake
Stay out of your head for as long as you can
Take a long look at yourself through your best friends ray bans

You are a warrior

Slay the dragon
And do not allow them to touch you like that
Anymore

The Nutritionist / The Madness Vase by Andrea Gibson

You are not weak just because your heart feels so heavy

I have never met a heavy heart that wasn’t a phone booth with a red cape inside

Some people will never understand the kind of superpower it takes for some people to just walk outside

"When he decides he doesn’t love you anymore,
here is what you do: Move on quietly. Love yourself
loudly."
(via pressing)
"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “Find your passion” and “Know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people, there is no realisation, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purposes. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."

"i made it up
here on this bridge between
starshine and clay,
my one hand holding tight
my other hand; come celebrate
with me that everyday
something has tried to kill me
and has failed."
Lucille Clifton, from “won’t you celebrate with me” (via the-final-sentence)

stop asking your demons to come to your house for supper.
you are a warrior; slay the dragon.
do not let them touch you.

"There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing — light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light."
"How come every other organ in your body can get sick and you get sympathy, except your brain?"
