Dear Henri, The Frozen Ones - Week 13

We freeze people. We don’t want to be hurt again or jilted again or manipulated, so we label folks badly to rationalize our own beliefs about the world. Chances are Racist-Friend HAS changed in many ways, as has Crooked Boss. Perhaps the changes haven’t be the best of changes, but change has been present nonetheless. It’s difficult for us as humans to remain truly frozen without dying. It’s our own icy perceptions that create impenatrable forms of people, and are shown off to the world. But these perceptions are frozen forgeries.

We know NOTHING of the hearts of those who have wronged us or hurt us. Not the deep core anyway

The World You Want

Just know I consider “The World You Want” as a song from the underground, inspired by kids from around the world, challenging us to face injustice daily and to take a hard look at what we believe. The line about science being religion has ruffled more than a few feathers, but is the truth: science, too, takes a measure of choice to believe in. - See more at: http://www.theundergroundrailroad.ca/oneabolitionist/2014/04/the-world-you-want.html#sthash.SqvoESQi.dpuf

Hi, I’m Claudia a young inspiring photographer. My tumblr portfolio is a little random depending on my project that I’m doing at the time. A lot of my recent uploads have been based on the theme of surrealism and I’ve become a self portraiture since last summer. I hope you like my work and follow for uploads similar!
