Excerpt from “Conversations with my Mother” (via leviathanrose)
Laura Ingalls Wilder (via observando)
my 6 word story (via un8common)
Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’
Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.
Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.
Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.
Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned
But good god,
Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’"
Six Word Story (via allineedissix)
221B is a canadian web series in five parts which shows us dr. watson and miss holmes at home at baker street.
While not the grand Sherlockian mystery most are used to, 221B emphasizes the domestic side of the mystery solving duo, often leading to comedic, puzzling and dangerous results. Giving a fresh perspective to the English Icons. Sometimes a woman’s touch is needed, even within the walls of 221B.
it’s short and cute and features a female holmes (!) so if you have a minute you should watch it!
