Jenny Holzer: Times Square Marquees, 1993 before the disneyfication of Times Square

"Like the Jenny Holzer pieces, you’ve got a lot of people saying, ‘What the fuck is that? What the fuck is that supposed to mean?’ And it’s like, well, why are you angry about that and you’re not angry about anything else you see here? About drug dealing, about people with drugs, about homelessness, but you’re getting mad about this sign because people feel it doesn’t belong here. And they feel all the other stuff does."

katie i've been having an awful month and today is actually my anniversary for recovery but i've relapsed a lot but i was having a bad body image day and i was watching spoken word on why i don't need to be pretty and was scrollin' through your blog and i feel better!! thank you i love you! hope you're doing well (◕‿◕✿)

Do you believe in anything, like faith or religion?
by Anonymous

no, i actually don’t have a religion! i don’t really believe in a certain god i guess, but i do think that each religion has its own lessons to teach. i find each religion has its own limitations, so i choose not to label myself as any religion really. i respect all religions & everyone else’s beliefs. at the end of the day, everybody has something they like to think to get through the day and i like to be respectful of that. i feel like people of different religions could learn a lot from each other, so i like to keep an open mind.

She is not “my girl.”

She belongs to herself, and to all of the world. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.

How much more blessed can I be?
