    Working freelance is extremely stressful. There is always either too much work or too little of it, too much of yourself in your work or not enough of it, sporadic pay-as-you-go checks or not paychecks at all, no safety, no security, no stability.

    Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

    When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

    But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

    At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

    Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

    Amen to that, Hugh.

    We want love because we do not need it.

    We want love in order to occupy empty spaces: the left side of the bed, or any side, you don’t mind; the chair across from you at the dinner table, at the kitchen table, at the table at a dimly-lit restaurant, half-booth and half bench; the stool beside you…

    Wow bukowski so profound do you also bathe fully clothed you dickhead. “Oohh isn’t it funny that a person will eat when they’re hungry but will duck if you throw an apple at their face”

    Reblogging for the comment, Bukowski is one of my least favourite authors….
