"I woke up like this."

howtolivefatandhappy:

Recently, I have been consistently using the phrase, “I woke up like this,” or variations thereof in my posts and tags and general everyday life. It is with my sincerest apologizes that I admit to you, dear friends, that it was a bold-faced lie. I do not, nor have I ever woken up like this:

I know, this may come as a shock to a lot of you but here are a few examples of how I actually wake up:

Miyoko Ihara

Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat

If you love a good cat photo, Miyoko Ihara's images of her grandmother and beloved cat will not disappoint you. From working in the fields to taking naps, these two are inseparable. Ihara not only explores the amazing bond between human and animal, but also tells the story of her elderly grandmother's life in Japan and the daily tasks she pursues. These images can be found in the beautiful book “Miyoko Ihara: Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat.”

"I’m still struggling with her death. She was my best friend and biggest fan.""What’s your happiest memory of her?""When I graduated from high school, I had to either sing a song or recite a poem. I sang a song that she’d taught me, and she was in the front row, clapping louder than everyone.""Do you remember the song?"“‘I never can forget the day,I heard my mother kindly say,You’re leaving now my tender care;Remember, child, your mother’s prayer.’”

"Do you remember the song?"
“‘I never can forget the day,
I heard my mother kindly say,
You’re leaving now my tender care;
Remember, child, your mother’s prayer.’”

This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill. 

Capitalism is inhumane.
