i bloom with the roses
As I see it, you are living with something that you keep hidden deep inside. Something heavy. I felt it from the first time I met you. You have a strong gaze, as if you have made up your mind about something. To tell you the truth, I myself carry such things around inside. Heavy things. That is how I can see it in you.– Haruki Murakami (via maksg)
I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.– Henry David Thoreau
Cincinnati’s Forgotten Subway System
Cincinnati isn’t simply home to a few ghost stations, but an entire abandoned rapid transit system. Incredibly, as cities look towards cleaner transport solutions and traffic reduction, Cincinnati boasts an entire subway system, complete with four stations directly beneath the downtown, that has never hosted a paying customer.
Described as “one of the city’s biggest embarrassments”, subway construction began during the early twentieth century but was halted by the Great Depression, World War Two and the rise of the automobile. Numerous attempts to revive the project have failed, but on a positive note the Cincinnati Subway conducts bi-annual tours, offering a golden opportunity for historians, photographers and urban explorers to take a look around.
Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds… Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.– Neil Gaiman (via thatkindofwoman)
