"Over the years I’ve been in some fairly dangerous situations. It’s part of the risks you accept doing expeditions. Yet one of the hardest things I’ve ever done was quit my job. I used to be in IT. Everyone said I was crazy to quit the security of a regular income to follow my dreams.
Then not long after quitting, I had a huge setback. I was attempting to ski to the North Pole - but I had to be airlifted out because of frostbite on my hands. I got out in time to save my fingers, but the trip was a failure. The sponsors were really disappointed and I became depressed. I began to doubt myself. Maybe my friends had been right. Maybe I’d overestimated myself. It was a dark time. I was in the valley.
But my wife encouraged me to keep going. ‘Just try again’. She helped lift me out of depression. And the next year, I made it to the North Pole. “

"Since I was a kid my favourite book has been Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I’ve read it over and over again. It’s what I’m all about. "

I overcame myself, the sufferer;
I carried my own ashes to the mountains;
I invented a brighter flame for myself.
And behold, then this ghost fled from me.

"What advice do you have for people?"

"Drink Guinness"

In an effort to get people to look
into each other’s eyes more,
and also to appease the mutes,
the government has decided
to allot each person exactly one hundred
and sixty-seven words, per day.

When the phone rings, I put it to my ear
without saying hello. In the restaurant
I point at chicken noodle soup.
I am adjusting well to the new way.

Late at night, I call my long distance lover,
proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.
I saved the rest for you.

When she doesn’t respond,
I know she’s used up all her words,
so I slowly whisper I love you
thirty-two and a third times.
After that, we just sit on the line
and listen to each other breathe.

Jeffrey McDaniel, the Forgiveness Parade (via chopa)
Nature is busy creating absolutely unique individuals, whereas culture has invented a single mold to which all must conform. It is grotesque.

My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.

asks:
hello my dear! just wondering do you know how much evidence do we have on how 'filipinos' dressed prespanish colonization?

pinoy-culture:

Oh we have several records from description in personal accounts from the early Spaniards to the early dictionaries. As far as visual evidence, the only source we have is the illustrations from the Boxer Codex that is dated c. 1595,  which describes some of the different ethnic groups in the Philippines from the Tagalogs to the Bisayans to the Sambals at the initial contact, as well as other groups from the Japanese to the Chinese and those from Borneo, Cambodia, Thailand, New Guinea, etc.

The Tagalogs

The Naturales

I’m not 100% sure what ethnic group they are as the manuscript doesn’t really say anything except “naturales” which stood for natives. They are more than likely however Tagalog commoners as right after these two pages along with a few other illustrations that we do know that are Tagalogs (the ones above which also those illustrations say naturales) is a whole section talking about the Tagalogs.

To be honest out of all the manuscripts and records we have to date, the Boxer Codex is the one that fascinates me the most, not just because of the illustrations, but because of the writings and descriptions of the people in a very unbiased manner.

For example here we find a passage talking about those who were born biologically as a man but were seen by people as a woman and who did marry another man. If it was friar who wrote this, you know they would make it very biased and condemning it, or not go into much detail. However in the Boxer Codex whoever the mysterious author who wrote it they weren’t biased at all.
