I never know what I’m supposed to do about gentrification
On a really basic level most of the good things boil down to “don’t be a dick.” As people involved with the housing market on the consumer side, you and I don’t really have that much control over where we choose to live and which landlords extort us.
But the key in acting ethically from that limited power is to be a part of where you live — to make connections, to truly inhabit it, which means being part of the life of the community that existed before you arrived. Establishing relationships with long-term residents, patronizing locally-owned and -operated businesses even if they’re unfamiliar or strange to you, being friendly, attending community/tenants’ meetings with an understanding of the economic forces at play in people’s lives, even worshiping in that community if appropriate — all of these are important, because they establish a basis upon which community organizations can succeed. Most places facing gentrification already have community organizations, and you want to make sure that people trust you enough to involve you in their work. Support these organizations, too, whether with monetary donations or with volunteering (to cook meals for a meeting, for example) or with solidarity at actions.

Listen to the wisdom of pain and to where it is drawing your attention. If you meet a challenge with resourcefulness, courage, and sincerity, you will set into motion a trajectory of healing that you forgot possible.

Get scared. It will do you good. Smoke a bit, stare blankly at some ceilings, beat your head against some walls, refuse to see some people, paint and write. Get scared some more. Allow your little mind to do nothing but function. Stay inside, go out - I don’t care what you’ll do; but stay scared as hell. You will never be able to experience everything. So, please, do poetical justice to your soul and simply experience yourself.
Albert Camus, Notebooks, 1951-1959 (via exoticwild)

When art critics get together they talk about Form and Structure and Meaning. When artists get together they talk about where you can buy cheap turpentine.

My frustration and anger regarding the way in which humans treat animals only increases the longer I live a vegan lifestyle. 

Mine’s done the opposite. The longer I’m vegan the more utterly I realize that people just DO NOT think about the animal products they consume and what they entail AT ALL. Ignorance / avoidance on a mass scale so profound that I can only be skeptical of myself and compassionate towards others, and after that there’s no more brain space to be ‘angry’.

[Jesus] also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Luke 18:9-14 (via locusimperium)
