[A series of three images of two women progressively getting older, each holding a sign that remains consistent: the one on the left reading “I am a Palestinian Arab. I was born in Jerusalem. Palestine is my homeland, but I cannot return there” (except in the third it reads “I still cannot return there”). The women on the right holds a poster reading “I am an American Jew. I as born in the U.S.A.. Israel is notmy homeland, but I can “return” there”.]
That’s Ghada Karmi (Palestinian Arab) and Ellen Siegel (American Jew), and the first picture of of them protesting outside the Israeli Embassy in London, 1973. Recurring images are of them reuniting for these photographs after 40 (?) years of friendship. [x]

Cinderella Pencil Test

When I first saw this, I actually teared up a little. The notes on the frames make it so much more amazing. That is true art. 

When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’.

fernweh [feyrn-vey]

— (noun) This wonderful, untranslatable German word describes the feeling of homesickness for a far away land, a place you have never visited. Do not confuse this with the english word, wanderlust; Fernweh is much more profound, it is the feeling of an unsatisfied urge to escape and discover new places, almost a sort of sadness. You miss a place you have never experienced, as opposed to lusting over it or desiring it like wanderlust. You are seeking freedom and self-discovery, but not a particular home.   (via mirroir)
