Watch the whole talk here »

Leslie Morgan Steiner was in an abusive relationship, though at first she didn’t realize it. In a talk at TEDxRainier, she tells the disturbing story of her relationship, correcting misconceptions many people hold about victims of domestic violence, and explaining how we can all help break the silence.

If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence or an absuive relationship, you can find a list of resources here. The U.S. National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-4673 (HOPE), and RAINN offers a secure online hotline.

The Whimsical World Inches Above the Earth

Your shin lives in a pretty cool world.

Photographer Michael Reese has spent a year getting to know that world. He creates a humorous and fantastical series of images he titled “Inches Above Earth” that incorporates aviation into a world less than a foot off the ground.

Reese began the project when Atlanta Celebrates Photography placed a call for work that explored a sense of place in a nontraditional sense. Fascinated with aviation since he was a child, Reese decided to pursue an imaginary world seen through a childlike imagination.

i. do not fall in love with me.
for i am hungry and cruel & i
will hollow you out with heavy
secrets & ugly insides.

i am not beautiful, i am scarred.
my mind is dusty archives with 
paper thoughts that my wildfire
heart has a tendency to burn.

i will burn you. i will not provide
you warmth.

because i am selfish & frigid &
i will steal your offered comfort.

ii. do not fall in love with me.
for i am a killer.

finger pointed in a permanent
pistol, i will whisper compassion
with the heavy barrel of my gun.

iii. do not fall in love with me
because i am cruel.

i am jealous & messy & savage
& i will show you what a true monster
is. i will posses you utterly.

i will suffocate you.

iv. do not fall in love with me.
for i am a sadist and i will feed
you my chaos affection & you 
will choke.

v. do not fall in love with me.
for i am a liar.

i will hurt you & crush you & scream
my strength into the air between us.

i will make you feel wonderful & worthless.

vi. do not fall in love with me.
for i am weak.

& i will inhale you more than the
stolen oxygen in my butterfly lungs.
i will rely on you with my life & i will
lock my heart away inside your ribcage 
because I do not trust myself with it.

vii. do not fall in love with me.
for i will need you.
