"They call us now.
Before they drop the bombs.
The phone rings
and someone who knows my first name
calls and says in perfect Arabic
“This is David.”
And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
still smashing around in my head
I think “Do I know any Davids in Gaza?”
They call us now to say
Run.
You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
Your house is next.
They think of it as some kind of
war time courtesy.
It doesn’t matter that
there is nowhere to run to.
It means nothing that the borders are closed
and your papers are worthless
and mark you only for a life sentence
in this prison by the sea
and the alleyways are narrow
and there are more human lives
packed one against the other
more than any other place on earth
Just run.
We aren’t trying to kill you.
It doesn’t matter that
you can’t call us back to tell us
the people we claim to want aren’t in your house
that there’s no one here
except you and your children
who were cheering for Argentina
sharing the last loaf of bread for this week
counting candles left in case the power goes out.
It doesn’t matter that you have children.
You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
to nowhere.
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
Run."

I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love - and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.

Right. So dumb British kids are waltzing off to assist Israel (a terrorist state) with the genocide of innocent Palestinian civilians. Let’s say i went over to join the Gaza resistance. What are the chances I could just catch the next plane home and be allowed entry back to the UK? No chance. British Muslims kids are being questioned for going to the Middle East for bloody humanitarian work meanwhile these guys are going for murder-holidays. What HEROES.

Just wanted to share this site with you guys because srsly it’s really good. You can either have a time limit on the photo you draw to challenge yourself and get better at drawing quicker, or have no time limit and practice drawing detail and stuff. And it’s not just drawing bodies it’s also hands and faces and stuff, just check it out cause it’s really good for practising!

heeey this is what you want (to the figure drawing lady)

EDIT and have a look at the figure drawing tag on here. Lots of references / tutorials etc
