do not trust the managers, even those who were once your comrades - the pull of authority is tempting and can convert even the most dedicated revolutionaries! revolt! revolt, and throw off your leashes, and if they are a true comrade, they let go on their end, and turn to bite the master’s hand!
A flower for Esther by Kali Ciesemier www.ciesemier.comI drew a flower for the Blooms of Nigeria tumblr, curated by Rebecca Bradley & Janna Morton as an illustrated vigil for the 250+ kidnapped Nigerian girls. Of the 180 girls whose names we know, the tumblr aims to give each of them an illustrated flower by different woman artist, and to keep their story alive and in discussion. I’m saddened and disappointed that there hasn’t been more progress in finding the girls, but hopeful for their safe return.
