Falling Into the Atmosphere


Sharing beautiful things that make my struggle with depression easier and will hopefully do the same for others.

Flowers are like the earth’s bright little reminders that I have a reason to be happy

A while ago I was having a hard time with existing. I had to create a short comic for a class I was taking, so I ended up making this. It was such a therapeutic experience for me that I’ve done a few more since then, though this is the only one that has managed to escape from the sketchbook.

It’s poorly drawn, poorly scanned, poorly written, and poorly laid out. But it’s the first comic I made, and I thought I would share it with you.

"well, that isn’t so bad."
"no. no, it isn’t."

"i will tell you, my daughter
of your worth
not your beauty
everyday. (your beauty is a given. every being is born beautiful)
knowing your worth
can save your life.
raising you on beauty alone,
you will be starved.
you will be raw.
you will be weak.
easy clay.
always in need of someone telling you how beautiful you are."

BAJAU LAUT: LAST OF THE SEA NOMADS

the bajau laut are some of the world’s last true sea normads, living as they have for centuries almost entirely in the waters of the coral triangle (“the amazon of the seas”) on long boats known as lepa lepa.

hunters of fish, pearls and sea cucumbers, the bajau people free dive to depths of 20 meters, hold their breath for up to three minutes, and spend up to 60% of their time in the water submerged - the equivalent of a sea otter.  it is a common practice amongst bajau people to intentionally burst their ear drums at an early age to deal with the problem of equalizing.

as photographer james morgan explains, “traditional bajau cosmology - a syncretism of animism and islam - reveals a complex relationship with the ocean, which for them is a multifarious and living entity. there are spirits in currents and tides, in coral reefs and mangroves.” the bajau people, for example, will not spit in the ocean.

in the last few decades, increasingly depleted fish stocks and government efforts have forced many to settle permanently on land and abandon a life of self sufficiency known as cari laut, or ‘searching the ocean’. a dwindling few, however, still choose to live the majority of their lives at sea
