Music, Quotes and Food OH MY

THE little things that get me through my day; join me!
I LOVE good music, none of this trashy Taylor Swift pop and Call me Maybe...just no.

I'M CONSTANTLY on the lookout for inspirational, thought-provoking, or just entertaining quotes and I love sharing them!

I LIVED in Italy for several years which had a huge impact on me, especially with its food; simple, fresh and delicious.

And sometimes I will just post something completely random

So I have definitely neglected this blog since, you know, leaving for India BUT since returning from India my life has been changing faster than I can wrap my head around. I’ve up and moved to Italy for first semester of eleventh grade, and I had to pack for that, get my life in order, say goodbye to friends, then settle in here. But now I have, my world has been spun around, and I’m ready to share it! This images are a selection from my trip this summer to India with a travel company called Rustic Pathways; they conduct trips around the world for high school students, and this summer I spent a month in the Himalayas then the foothills in India on a photography and community service trip respectively. Most of the pictures I took were on the photography trip, ‘cause by the end I was basically photoed out, but I’m really happy with how much I learned and how much I changed as a person on these trips.

Now that I’m in Italy, I really want to make sure I’m getting as much out of the experience as possible, so besides music, quotes, and food (as my blog name suggests) I will definitely be documenting other aspects of my life now…I hope that’s okay with you guys. Hopefully by expanding my content I can also expand my blog’s viewership from it’s pretty minuscule current audience (if anyone has other advice on that I would welcome your input!). To that end, if you have any cool blogs you follow that don’t have hundreds of thousands of followers, I would love to know about them because I know there are a lot of interesting blogs out there, and I really want to get to be a part of those communities. 

Well that’s all for now :)

One Million Bones DC

Led by artist Naomi Natale as part of the One Million Bones Project, this mass grave assembled at the National Mall in Washington, DC is composed of bones made of paper and plaster, but symbolizes the very real number of people killed in places like Sudan, Germany, and the former Yugoslavi. Each bone created by students and volunteers was matched with $1 sent to CARE, which helps send aid to Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Stunning… Although I perceived it to be standing for other countries too.

My class actually participates in this as our contribution to raising awareness for genocide in that it is still happening. It’s really cool to see how the whole project came together.

Perhaps a little morbid if I say this is a wonderful poem, but I have a friend who is grieving right now and I think this sort of poetry can help people when they’re in that place (it has helped me before). There is a similar poem by Christina Rosetti called “Remember”, I believe, which communicates a parallel message.

Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.

She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.

‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).

Look at all the pain that went into this and the beauty that came out.

These are really cool
