back when I first started doing photography I had the difficult task of asking all my subjects for their permission to use their image in a photograph. it wasn’t until I finally read the law books that I realized you don’t have to ask permission to take pictures of birds. birds don’t have the same legal rights as humans apparently. outrageous but true
Contrary to popular belief,
"I love you" and "I’m sorry" are not bandaids.
Saying “I love you” in the middle of a fight does not negate the feelings that were hurt.
And “I’m sorry” means absolutely nothing without an active effort to not do that thing again.
Words can be bombs, but they can never be bandaids.
