" Perhaps today, back-tracking, treading the trail by the stream of consciousness, I would refrain from so much loving, so much gathering, so much suffering with and for so many fellow creatures." - Nell Shipman


I’m doing a quasi in depth study of Nell for a film class. She was a actress, writer, director, producer, mother, animal rights activist, feminist and fellow north westerner among others.

The useless days will add up to something. The shitty waitressing jobs. The hours writing in your journal. The long meandering walks.

These things are your becoming.
