 No, I don’t have any real disease

I’ve never had any real disease

Depression, anxiety, acne

All pushed aside and held in secret

Like Panera’s hidden menu

I keep it to myself

None of it’s real; none of it’s validated

Until I read that severe acne is highly

Correlated with depression

And I think to myself

OK, I get it now,

But wait, this happened to me in reverse

I don’t understand, what’s happening here?

I used to write down every time a kid came up to me

And said “What’s all the red stuff on your face?”

Even if I explained it the question came again

And one, two, three, four, five tallies

Were marked in my notebook by the end of the day

My friend would tell me

“Don’t worry, they’ll figure out someday”

But the truth is I don’t want them to.

I don’t want to find happiness in myself

Because of someone else’s misfortune

I just keep the tallies so I have 5 more reasons

To hate myself

I’ve gone through using toothpaste, Proactiv


Watching the commercials wondering

How the hell those girls looked so cheerful

Washing their face in the morning

And I struggled to keep the foam and water

From soaking my shirt and pants

I scrubbed so hard

Those girls never had acne to begin with

Inspired by uispeccoll, houghtonlib, smithsonianlibraries, and others, we’ve created our first animated gifs! 

These images are from Fragments on the theory and practice of landscape gardening by Humphry Repton (London, 1816).  Repton was England’s first professional landscape gardener, a term he coined himself. Repton and other gardeners of this period sought to shape the landscape without the outward appearance of control, creating “natural” scenery too perfect to exist in nature. 

Repton’s main employment was as a design consultant for wealthy landowners throughout the English countryside, and he used his artistic and writing skills to further his career. When he sketched plans for new landscapes, Repton devised a way to make the illustrations interact with his clients by incorporating overlays which, when closed, show the current state of the property.  The client could lift the flaps to see how his or her estate would look after Repton’s proposed modifications. 

Although Repton took on hundreds of commissions during his thirty-year career, his writings and watercolors may be his most enduring achievements.  His illustrations, along with his written commentary and explanations of his design principles, were collected and published as Observations on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening (1803) and Fragments on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening (1816).
