Do-Ho Suh - Bridging Home (2010)
"A replica of a Korean house installed into a small space between two larger homes in a Northern English City. The juxtaposition of one’s personal, safe space, located within a very foreign and impersonal environment raising questions of cultures and traditions. Mimicking old Korean architecture, the replica also served as a visual representation of the past. Home is a universal concept accepted by all cultures, but upon crossing boundaries, Suh urged his viewers to consider differences and similarities between the history of cultures."

Oh… 20 years ago I stood in that exact spot and took a picture of that view… would love to visit there again.

These are good points - just want to say that anger’s not the same as hate. Yes, hate will destroy you… but anger can fuel a revolution. We should all be angry about what’s going on in the world. It means we still care about each other.
"don’t fight hate with hate"
translation: i’d rather you continue to be hated and suffer than face the possible ramifications of you fighting back. i care more about some hypothetical badness that might come from you being angry at me for legitimate reasons than the very real harm that is done to you

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days… Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me… So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling.
The abusive man’s problem with anger is almost the opposite of what is commonly believed. The reality is:
Your abusive partner doesn’t have a problem with HIS anger; he has a problem with YOUR anger.
One of the basic human rights he takes away from you is the right to be angry with him. No matter how badly he treats you, he believes that your voice shouldn’t rise and your blood shouldn’t boil. The privilege of rage is reserved for him alone. When your anger does jump out of you —as will happen to any abused woman from time to time —he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can. Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are. Abuse can make you feel straightjacketed. You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use as an excuse to belittle you further or make you feel crazy.
n. a recurring thought that only seems to strike you late at night—an overdue task, a nagging guilt, a looming and shapeless future—that circles high overhead during the day, that pecks at the back of your mind while you try to sleep, that you can successfully ignore for weeks, only to feel its presence hovering outside the window, waiting for you to finish your coffee, passing the time by quietly building a nest.
