After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t always mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of woman, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and you learn—
With every goodbye, you learn.” —Jorge Luis Borges, You Learn (translated by Veronica A. Shoffstall)

Pharrell Wants to Turn Ocean Trash Into Jeans
“Now we know one of the big ideas that musician-entrepreneur Pharrell Williams had under his enormous hat: Taking plastic trash from the ocean and turning it into jeans.
Pharrell recently announced plans to launch a new jeans collection with the denim label G-Star RAW. The collection, called G-Star RAW for the Oceans, will be created using fabric from Bionic Yarn. We’ve been sterilizing and melting down plastic bottles to make synthetic threads for years now but Bionic Yarn’s new thread will apparently originate with plastic waste pulled from the ocean. The details aren’t available yet, though. Hat tip Grist.”
SEE THEY’RE HAVING FUN WITH IT, NOW ALL YA’LL GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS AND STOP TEARING DOWN WOMEN TO RAISE OTHER WOMEN UP.
