Growing Up Untouchable in India

from Vasant Moon, a dalit (a term which was originally and unrightfully coined untouchable or lower than human) quotes Babasaheb, "'Listen, one candle can light another candle, can't it? Doesn't the spark go from on to another? Rebirth is the same way. Without being extinguished, the spark from the candle arises in another place, this is what is called rebirth." This was in the response to Moon's question about Buddhism's non-belief in spirit but its acceptance of rebirth.

I'm still deciding what I believe in, I haven't really read anything or educated myself on any matter... but as a non-god believer I find it difficult to believe in re-birth as well... it's still fascinating, though

I missed this and my professor was there

"for the photographer, the world is really there; it is an incredible thing, it is all interesting and in fact, more interesting when seen through the camera than when seen with the naked eye or with real sight."

Memento Mori

I don't believe in new years resolutions, but I do believe in the occasional inspiration spurt... I want to become more active in finding my own inspiration, especially with my own work. Mentally, emotionally, and aesthetically.

Probably one of the first series of inspiration for this semester, and something I always come back to: death and decay
