i found this quotation and i really enjoyed it...
"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere." -my favorite, eleanor roosevelt
also-- i've become a swedish clog lover. i ordered a pair of clogs from Lotta from Stockholm, and i am here to say that they are the comfiest shoes EVER. i romped around nyc for an entire day and only towards the end did they even start to bother my feet (this was when my sister and i had to sprint 3 blocks to make our train : ) ).
p.s-- does anybody else get that overwhelming feeling like they want to get rid of half of what they own, only to be sickened by the thought of so much going into a landfill (if its un-donatable)!??! urggg.
have a lovely weekend! xx
