HOW DO I LAND?! Here’s a comp of the actual letters from the Cloud Project! The actual day had a very high winds, and the letters appeared and disappeared quite quickly. But if you watched the sky for 20 minutes you could probably piece it together. BUT STILL WE DID IT!!! Thanks to everyone who contributed! Photo by Robyn Von Swank!
This is awesome.
yet again, i see something in you that inspires. as a kid, i wanted to go to art school, i wanted to create. i had a good eye for color, and i enjoyed putting visual elements together. it calmed me. my mother did not nourish this creativity, and absolutely shunned the idea of me ever going to art school with the intention of making things. to my mother, and to many people in general, art was a hobby. art was not something people did to make a living, and she was poor enough as it was. she worked hard, lived with a man who i did see make much effort to help, and seemed unhappy. i thought about escaping a lot. but the belief was ingrained in my head, that i would never be able to make art, go to art school, etc.
the fact that you went so far as to have the motivation, the encouragement, to enter an art competition [and win!] as a kid is really cool. and having the determination to still create beautiful things, despite not having money to go to art school, is inspiring. i wish i’d had the strength and foresight to do likewise.
i’m making small steps. thank you for inspiring.
This is for the poor kids. The misfits. The neglected dreamers.You sit in the back of the class because you’re ashamed of your hand-me-downs. You can’t afford glasses so you can’t see the board. You don’t have enough money for your own art supplies, and your school doesn’t supply them because all that money goes to the jocks, so you guiltily shoplift them. The entire machine you’re being pushed through is engineered to ignore you in favor of the elites. The athletes. The rich kids.
The more I read from this man, the more impressed I am and the more inspired I get. “If you nurture it, if you are tender with yourself, your suffering now makes you strong in the future.” <— This has been my problem. I was not nice to myself. I fell into their trap and beat myself up for them. And it is not too late to change my ways.

Trashing the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law in only four tweets, a lesson from Senator Lindsey Graham.
Once again, President Obama is showing how much smarter he is, than you, Lindsey.
It gets better! Did you see what this douchebag said about the Hate Crimes provision in the latest Defense Authorization Bill?
“We all agree that hate crimes are wrong. That is why they are already illegal. There is simply no need to separate out a particular class of crimes for special consideration. Whatever the motivation behind criminal acts, they deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
anonymous asked: Yo the main difference between NASCAR racists and golf racists is that NASCAR racists think POCs are the source of their problems while golf racists understand that POCs are a group they can exploit to, among other things, convince the NASCAR racists to vote for a golf racist candidate.
