And if you didn’t feel that sinking feeling just now, I envy your first read of the Culture series, and so much more.
Like, the closer your armpit is to your back, the better. Now try and wiggle all limbs at once. Works better if you have a mirror.
“Sometimes a kind of existential perception of the absurd comes over me and I see with awful certainty the hypocrisies and posturing of myself and my fellow men. And at other times, there is a different sense of the absurd, a playful and whimsical awareness. Both of these senses of the absurd can be communicated, and some of the most rewarding highs I’ve had have been in sharing talk and perceptions and humor. Cannabis brings us an awareness that we spend a lifetime being trained to overlook and forget and put out of our minds. A sense of what the world is really like can be maddening; cannabis has brought me some feelings for what it is like to be crazy, and how we use that word ‘crazy’ to avoid thinking about things that are too painful for us.”
“Anthropologists have often described what happens to a primitive society when it’s spiritual values are exposed to the impact of modern civilization. It’s that people lose the meaning of their lives, their social organization disintegrates, and they themselves morally decay. We are now in the same condition. But we have never really understood what we have lost, for our spiritual leaders unfortunately were more interested in protecting their institutions than in understanding the mystery that symbols present. In my opinion, faith does not exclude thought (which is man’s strongest weapon), but unfortunately many believers seem to be so afraid of science (and incidentally of psychology) that they turn a blind eye to fate. We have stripped all things of their mystery and numinosity; nothing is holy any longer.”

These are lovely… why would you stop posting your photos?
:edit I don’t post them here any more, I’m moody and do phases and things like that. However, I did end up starting another photo blog under tatewo.tumblr.com
I have been trying to get more on my current blog, but I’m keen not to look at my camera as an obligation.
sucks and I’d rather do shitty pictures for no money.
