She is not “my girl.”

She belongs to herself, and to all of the world. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.

How much more blessed can I be?

Abandoned House in the Woods Taken Over by Wild Animals

Finnish photographer Kai Fagerström presents unique photo series, where he captures wild animals making themselves comfortable in abandoned houses in the woods of Finland. Titled The House in the Woods, the photo series is set in cottages near Kai’s summer house, which were abandoned by their tenants after the owner of the place died in a fire. Award-winning photographer noticed how the place was slowly being reclaimed by the nature, and what started as a few snapshots, ended up being a book, published in Finnish, German, and English.

“Deserted buildings are so full of contradictions,” says Kai. “I am fascinated by the way nature reclaims spaces that were, essentially, only ever on loan to humans.” Kai usually works with a clear image of what he wants to achieve in his head, although it make take some time for all elements to fall into place. The photographer has enough patience, however: “This is fine with me,” he says. “The journey is more important than the destination.“

"Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time."

The Pervocracy: Consent culture. (via wickedgirlssavingourselves)

I get what you’re saying, and I agree. However…

I used to live in my own comfort-zone very heavily, and was quite unmoveable at it. When I said no to something, it was no, until someone pushed me to do certain things. After that person succeeded a couple of times, I really opened up the idea of doing new things, and I’m quite grateful that I did.

I’m not saying that forcing people to do things they don’t want for the sake of “coming out of the comfort zone” is right. Definitely not. But I do think that (if you know the person well enough. This is quite crucial) you can try to get them to move out of their position of comfort, and try to make them explore new things. I’m grateful someone did that to me in the past, and I can’t be the only one.

But like I said, make sure you know the person you’re trying to nudge, and don’t go overboard. Stop when you see that they are getting more and more uncomfortable, and most of all: just use your head.

Sorry for the incoherent rambling.
