fantasticarepickles:this makes my heart ache
Silverstein always has been, and always will be my favorite poet because he doesn’t even need words in his poem to make people open their eyes.
"Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable."Sometimes, I Just Don’t Have Time for Individual Fights | this ain’t livin’ (via geometricity)

As a surrealist, David Lynch draws much of his inspiration from his unconscious—through dreams, transcendental meditation, and otherwise. The recurrence of this character throughout his work highly suggests that this image is one paired very closely with the essence of Lynch’s own mind.
