Side note: I haven’t even started any of my finals. I should be stressed beyond my mind but I just physically can’t push myself to be.
The past is gone, you can’t do anything about it but let it go and learn from it. The future doesn’t exist and has potential to never exist. The present, that’s where it’s at. That’s what’s going on right fucking now. And what am I going to do about it?! Everything that I ever do ever!
I am going to laugh and cry and love and hate and feel everything that I ever feel.
Deeeeeeep breaths, God they feel so nice. It just feels so fucking wonderful to be alive and be able to perceive things and I can’t explain why but you know what I don’t care! It’s just so wonderful! I feel love all around me, Earth hugging me tightly to her skin and the beautiful composition of sounds that calls me to live among it!
Everything that I see, hear, touch, smell, taste, everything is just so damn beautiful just because they exist and I exist and God it’s all just so right.
And interacting! Man that shit! That shit is the best. Listening and learning and letting others grow and learn. Let’s all just come together and learn the most that we possibly can just by listening to each other with open fucking ears!
Contact with natural beings also. Wonderful. Whether it’s a great warm hug or the grass on my feet. The smell of the air or the way the sun shines life on everything!
Existing man. Existing is so great. Existing with other beings. I don’t know why but it just is. I love it. I love it so much.
Happiness and love, that’s what exists at the core. When you shed everything else, that’s all that’s left. Let go of what makes you miserable, let go of expectations, let go of identity. Exist right now, for this very moment because that is all you will ever be able to do. Feel everything, perceive everything and know that all that really exists is love and truth.
The thing is, love and happiness will never be defined with words. They can only be felt, that is all. But I know I’ll never stop trying.
I can’t brain this. They look like miniatures.
this lens will cost you your arms, your legs, and your grand kids.
You can achieve the same effect using Photoshop. :)
Why? It looks miniature but what about it is making it look like this?! fdskalkfja what is going on?!
At what point will I let myself realize that it’s not my responsibility to save everyone?
The moment when you realize a child living in total poverty is more happy than you are. Money truly cannot buy happiness. I am in pursuit of that happiness.
this made my whole day.
This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, actually
this is just pure adorableness <3 i am in love with this! omg x
bless this kid, made my day
This is honestly so cute its just soo adorable like what even!?
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.
