merda taurorum animas conturbit
Hello my name is Leah and this is that beautifully slow, but sure process. I believe in this life, myself, and you ♥.
People say I talk too much so I'm trying to write more.

  • A friend of mine posted the total costs of labour to run the ALS Association, including the executive salaries. His posting was incredibly justified because I believe everyone should be aware of where their money is going and have the choice and wisdom to choose. But it also reminded me of one of my favorite TED talks I believe everyone should watch if they have the chance. I’ve been working with small scale non-profits every day and many of the Executive Directors I meet volunteer their time to run entire non-profit organizations and coalitions alongside their intense day jobs in finance, law, health etc, working around 20+ hours in their nonprofit work. These small-scale directors know better than to quit their day jobs, but that’s also why their nonprofits aren’t going to be growing exponentially anytime soon because there simply isn’t enough manpower. There really are some unnecessary hefty nonprofit CEO salaries out there, but these days using overhead costs as a reason to deter anyone from donating to charity is just an archaic and fallacious argument.

    My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

    To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

    Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

  • They say somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go lie down, unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end 💛💙 Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson @denydesigns #whyistherenoelephantemoji

  • Back from a week at Americorps Training and at my first conference representing the DAs Office today! So crazy/inspired/awestruck listening to military leaders such as General Banta of the Marine Corps Camp Pendleton, Speaker of the CA State Assembly Toni Atkins, corporate/media leaders, and even an amazing UCSD professor speak on behalf of design thinking, radical collaboration, and changing our world for the better. AsdaJdjsmsms Day 1 of my Americorps year #overwhelmed and #happy

  • Just called Jonathan Brandon and Anais cause I miss them extra today. And although they were super excited I called because I rarely do, they were all so distracted watching TV, using the computer, unprepared for a genuine call and conversation with me, they werent really present for any chatting. When I offered to go and hung up (cause they would never) I wondered and know deep down inside this is how my dad probably felt every time he finally called across the seas.
