Town and Gown 10k Run, Oxford 2013
So this happened last weekend, when people ran 10k around Oxford for charity. Well done everyone!
I will never be fit enough to do this.
“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”

This is awesome!
fun fact i learned yesterday: a group of pugs is called a “grumble”
I wonder why I rarely feel
like my full self in the presence of most men.
I wonder if most men would hear that
and feel unwelcome in my presence.
I wonder if I have spent most of my life as myself
or most of my life as a welcome mat.
I wonder who is wiping their feet on my heartbeat.
I wonder how muddy my own boots are.
It was dark when they touched one another
finger to finger, palm to palm,
and reaching up like a balancing act
caught on a string they hung,
floating in uncertainty and hope.

maybe it’s vain to reblog myself
but I need reminding of my own words
