I bought my first painting to hang in my room. It is a shot of Prospect Park in Brooklyn. This park was designed by landscape architects Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, who also designed Central Park. I have yet to go to Prospect Park! I saw this particular artwork at the Union Square Market and fell in love with it. After searching the Prospect Park website (yes, the park has a website) I found out that it has a forest, the nation's first Audubon center, a zoo, and hosts a performing arts festival each year. I am definitely going to visit the park this weekend while the weather is still nice. For now, I have this beautiful picture above my desk to remind me of nature and new sites to explore.
as someone who identifies as queer, i gotta say that the original reblog is more resonant than your follow up answer to an ask. Queer is a description, like gay, like fat, like tall, like thin, like straight. There's nothing inherently shameful in any of those adjectives. Anything–ANYTHING—in the wrong mouths is a slur. Treating my identity like a bad word does actually harm me. I shuddered when I saw you censor it.
