                                                                             come, my friends
                                           tis not too late to seek a newer world.
                                           push off, and sitting well in order smite
                                           the sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
                                           to sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
                                           of all the western stars, until i die.

Women of National Geographic

Jane Goodall - studied chimpanzees and has created community-centered conservation programs that not only protect chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania, but also take into account the needs of the people crucial to their protection

Hayat Sindi - created low-tech diagnostic tools to aid in the improvement of healthcare in the world’s poorest communities, has a Cambridge University Ph.D. in biotechnology

Kakenya Ntaiya - teacher building the first school for girls in her rural Kenyan village, refuses to accept Maasai woman’s traditionally subservient role, hopes that expanding education and leadership opportunities for girls will also improve life for the entire village

Nalini Nadkarni - uses mountain climbing gear to climb into the rainforest canopies of Costa Rica and researches the threats of global warming

Sarah McNair-Landry - youngest person to ski to the South Pole, sledged to the North Pole, and crossed ~1,400 miles of the Greenland ice cap to draw attention to the dangers of global warming

Dian Fossey - studied endangered gorillas in the Virunga Volcanoes of Rwanda, her devotion to their care and protection cost her her life and she was probably murdered by poachers who she fought relentlessly.

I hope that one day I can be added to this list of incredible and inspiring women.

season of the (w)itch;; [listen here] she raced the night, and she raced it valiantly. she gobbled down the stars, and slurped the marrow out of the darkness. her fingers sizzled; her eyes flared. she smiled the way murderers did after a conquest. she smiled the way the devil did, because she knew something that the world didn’t. she was death, and she bore no shame.

"Consider again that dot. That’s here, that’s home, that’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines… every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."
