Dresden after the bombing ~ 1945

It’s great here. It’s really great. Um, I don’t know… I went to this shrine today. And, um, there were these monks and they were chanting. And I didn’t feel anything, you know? And, um, I don’t know… I even tried ikebana, and John is using these hair products.

I just… I don’t know who I married.

If his was more than just a vague ambition, if he was absolutely determined to discover the truth, there’s no way we could prevent him.

i hate people who take posts like “black ladies are beautiful” and say “YOU MEAN EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL”

its like showing up to a little celebratory function for an unappreciated tech crew of a movie and going “DONT U THINK THE ACTORS ARE IMPORTANT TOO???”

son the actors already have the red carpet and four billion dollars sit down

A kingdom of isolation

And it looks like I’m the queen

The following post was made by Surjit Singh, a Sikh bus driver from Surrey, BC:

I took a day off to participate in Nagar Kirtan which happened on April 19 in my city Surrey . As I work as transit operator and my second reason to take a bus instead of driving my car was to avoid the hassle to find a parking spot and frustration to get out of the traffic at the end of day.
I took lot of pictures thinking that I will share it with my friends . But what happened in the bus when I was coming back home was so soul touching that I couldn’t stop myself to write this.
Despite of cold weather and rain I seen 5 Singh and 5 ( piaray ) loved ones, were walking bare feet in front of Guru sahib float . They had to walk at least 7 hours like that .
For me it was great faith and dedication but somehow my mind wasn’t ready to accept it . Is it really needed or necessary ? Why can’t they have shoes on ? My mind sometime makes me think !!!!
I was the last person to get in the bus . There was a poor man sitting on left side the bus , I sat on the right side opposite to him . On the next stop, Muslim guy came in the bus and sat beside me . I felt that he want to start conversation but I kept playing with my phone to avoid it but not to ignore him. 
Before he got off the bus , this Muslim guy took his shoes off including his socks , he pushed toward this poor fellow . Saying that it’s ok . Take it . I live close by . Don’t worry about me . After saying that he quickly got off the bus, not even giving this poor man chance to say Thanks .
I grabbed my phone and took two pictures . One this guy putting shoes on ( I noticed he had his feet wrapped in plastic bags and had no shoes . And I also took the picture of Muslim man who was walking home bare feet .
What a great human being .
His bare feet walking home was so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes.
