Nobody will ever know
Of how much I miss home
And when I’m there, just how much I feel like I don’t belong there
Nobody will ever understand

And I sat wondering if everybody was like her
Or was it just her hair that made me forget about rose petals
Or if it was just the way her eyes smiled after id said something she deemed sweet
I didn’t know
She led me to a chorus of curiosity
I wasn’t sure if she was good for me
But I’d be damned if two days of just getting to know her were enough for me

West Beirut, Lebanon, 1984. Photo by George Azar.

George Azar’s poignant shot of Jawkal, a young teenager, who is sitting alone, despondent after having lost his family to an Israeli bombing in southern Lebanon, not knowing, of course, that soon afterwards he will lose his own eyesight in another attack. (x)

More details about this photograph and others by George Azar in the documentary Beirut Photographer.


We were talking about Shakespeare in English class and the tradition of throwing tomatoes when the actors are bad. Well it turns out, back then people thought tomatoes were poisonous, and so people would aim at the actors mouth and try to kILL THEM WHEN THEY WERE BAD AT ACTING OMG

"More and more I think there’s an element of fiction writing that’s performative. If you want your stories to carry a particular charge of feeling, you have to experience that feeling while you’re working. I don’t know that you can fake it, or at least I don’t know that I’ve ever been able to fake it, because the choices you make when you’re writing—the rhythms you adopt, the phrases you construct, the effect one word has when it’s nestled alongside another—are so highly nuanced, and have so much to do with the ultimate emotional effect of a story, so that if you aren’t feeling along with your sentences, your instincts will gradually lead you astray."

The Rumpus Interview With Kevin Brockmeier

This is, no surprise, really really great.

This is really interesting! Do you guys feel this way when you write? I think I only do sometimes, and I would categorize those times as when I feel “inspired” or when “the muses speak to me”, etc. But it’s definitely not how I feel when I’m slogging away at something.

This is really weird because I’m pretty sure I wrote the comment right above this one, but it’s not sourced anywhere. Also weird that I can find something on Tumblr and be sure that I wrote it.
