I had the pleasure to make some rad photos with the insanely talented @rivermakings this past weekend. A few months ago River returned to South Africa from Cirque du Soleil to undergo surgery on a his shoulder. It's been three months since the operation and after using his wolverine-like healing abilities, he is back at it again and will be jetting off to the circus soon. 🙌🏼
Cannon Beach has about a 4 mile stretch of beach with the highlight, of course, being Haystack Rock. I usually take visitors here just because it is so iconic. The town is cute, too. It is still touristy but it doesn’t feel like as much of a tourist trap as Seaside.
Fees: usually none but you have to park around the town and walk to the beach so sometimes it can be tricky to find parking
Dogs Allowed: yes and off leash!
Distance from Portland: 1 hr 30 mins
If You don't know what it's like to be sexually assaulted.
You'd wake up the next day doubting your self, questioning yourself.
"But it's my body, why would someone think they have access to it?" It's a muffled cry, trickle of blood, feelings bombs in your stomach.
it's like to have an unwanted hand go up your skirt, being forced to give away your body.
And you thought it was okay to wear a skirt that day, it was a family dinner with your family friends. This memory made your self-worth decrease, your body has been violated by someone you thought you could trust, or thought they could protect you.
It's being unable to push him away, it's being forced into something.
It's like barely being able to breathe.
You don't know what it's like to be used just for your body,
If you do then speak up.
Your experience might motivate other quite victims to speak up.
“Go wherever you want.”
Its what I have always told myself to do. Someday at least. Traveling require more courage than you think. Can you travel alone? Languages? Cultural Wall? But thats the whole point of traveling isn’t it? To conquer fear and to better understand yourself. Do you have that courage?
Mt. Binutasan belongs to Maysawa Circuit, a hiking destination in Tanay, Rizal festuring two mountains. It is composed of rolling hills and grassland slopes. One can get a chance to take a glimpse of sea of clouds when the weather permits.
