"Forgiveness is for anybody who needs a safe passage through my mind" ~Buddy Wakefield

My pain was never beautiful or poetic. It was answering the phone mid breakdown and laughing like I was fine.

…if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in.

imageWho says art can’t be eco-friendly? Recycled Shadow is a installation by Spanish architectural collective Meva. First, they folded hundreds of old newspaper pages into windmills. Next, the windmills were hung up on nylon mesh to create suspended sculptures. This simple act provided shade to anyone who happened to pass by. The project itself was undertaken after the London Municipal center found that 100 extra tons of paper waste are created by newspapers.

In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.
