Soooo, here is to being a rubbish blogger and leaving you all for weeks! Sorry about that… I shall try to post more often, life has just been so hectic, but I suppose that is part of living in a city - you have to expect it. Although I very much intend not to lose myself within the busy-ness of city life…
So when I went to the March Against Mosanto protest I met this lovely fellow by the name of Fuad. He said I looked interesting and asked if he could photograph me, and I obviously said yes! I suppose it isn’t the vanity of it that I enjoy, but its cool to help him build his portfolio and it is equally nice to have nice pictures at no expense.
Yesterday was a deliciously sunny day and we walked through Kelvingrove Park - right next to the Uni and where I live. I’ve never really seen Autumn before, and yesterday was one of those autumn days that you see people taking pictures of. It was sunny, golden and fresh. Fresh with death, beautiful death, but only for everything to rest, and the finally rejuvenate in Spring!
Ahh, I really do like these pictures. They are playful, and me. Especially the tree hugging one. That is what I am - Lover of all things alive.
I LOVE YOU TOO! YOU BEAUTIFUL BEING! AHHH!
12th of October; March Against Monsanto protest in Glasgow.
So finally, I live in a place where I can live out my inner activist. It is sad that I was never so awake to a world of activism before. Of course, I was an activist in my own way, spreading love to the people I meet - teaching them that life doesn’t have to be so complicated all the time.
It started the other week when going to a wonderful gig. The musician was by the name of Ryan Harvey - Riot Folk.. He was so amazing and inspiring, all his songs speaking about the war movement in the US, the Occupy Movement, the Arab Spring, Syria, and the rest of the crazy things in the World. After his music there was an open mic, and there were so many inspiring poems told.
I just got this itching feeling that I must participate in what I believe in and use my voice! Because I have one!
So I and my wonderful flat mate Tania (who also photographed this) went to the March Against Monsanto protest in the city centre. It was wonderful to meet so many like minded people, and to see children participating, and even using their voices. There was such a good energy there despite the fact that not so many people came and that we were not permitted to march…
The world wants to hear your voice, so use it!
Seed freedom people. You cannot own Nature, Pacha Mama is too Great for that, too Beautiful, to Pure… March Against Monsanto!
Of course angel pie! Feel free to reblog what you want! And yes! I’d love to talk!
Be true to who you are and the world will be and endless lotus, always in bloom, and always unfolding herself to you in different dimensions. I feel like these pictures make some sort of a statement, namely because I am not a skinny girl, and I do not care for gender stereotypes and gender roles.
I like the skeleton on the vest for it has many subtle connotations and questions, which are all being indefinitely answered. In love be nothing less than who you feel that you are. Your natural self in infinite beauty, love and embrace.
Stand for what you believe in, in this life.
Many apologies for the rubbish photo quality, but as my camera broke whilst I was travelling, I just have to make do with my phone, not complaining though, I have a camera and that is an awesome thing within itself!
So yeah, I decided to have me a feast yesterday and thus this deliciousness commenced.
I had quinoa/canneli burgers, with some rocket salad, vegan cheese spread, and roasted carrots/asparagus/potatoes (spiced with chilli and oregano). Also a beautiful splodge of tahini!
I’m loving the skip on the corner of my street - so close, so convenient and clean! There was much more than this, but as they say take only what you need. Plus it was all pretty unhealthy, cheeky me!
So here it is, grapes, carrots, crumpets, some flavoured peanuts (for a unhealthy day), asparagus, and some white bread. Oooops and then the fruit pots!
And I just picked up some bananas now - abundance.
I’m not a violent person in anyway shape or form, but I had to get this bag just because of the sheer amount of giggles that it gives me!
It is so fitting also because I use this bag when I go on small skipping trips, so technically it is used for recycling!
Plus, we gotta clean up our act on this glorious planet! Poor pacha mama and her beautiful disease. I’m not saying that my hands are clean, or pointing fingers, but its not just to do with recycling. Its about turning off switches, and buying things with less packaging, it is about buying locally (which I don’t always manage), it is about not littering in the street, it is about referring to the planet as your home, and wanting to keep your home as beautiful as it should be.
Me taking various pictures of myself again, ha! The main reason for this post was to preach body positivity! You see the wonderful little note I stuck on the side of the mirror(yes, the Yogitea one!).
Self confidence wins, I assure you. Lately I have not been caring about what I eat or how my body looks - I’ve just been training and in that being more in the present. I was looking at my thighs whilst walking and didn’t judge myself! I just thought you are fit and healthy, and I love you!”
Please love yourself people, it makes like just that much more beautiful!
Protein Shakes & eathrquakes!
I say earthquakes, because that has how my training has felt lately - every time it is over I am left shaking (in a good way) and sweating and feeling like a freaking boss.
Had this little bad boy before my lecture yesterday, and I am off to the gym now.
Yep, I am happy.
