We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. We have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. It’s how we learn. We breathe love. It’s how we learn. And it is inevitable. — N. Waheed (via nezua)

“I was onstage with Led Zeppelin at Kezar Stadium, and there were some white doves in cages that were to be released at the end of ‘Stairway.’ When the signal was given to release them, out they went …but one circled for a moment and flew right into Robert’s hands. Robert was the prince of peace, the golden god, and this photo would look ridiculous with anybody else holding the bird. Any other male, that is.” - James Fortune (Photographer)

South Saint-Mary Cemetery. Walsenburg.
…These are not like graves in town that no one should forget.
These were meant to be forgotten. Some people never stop wanting to
disappear into the mountains.
