when she talks, I hear the revolution / in her hips, there's revolution

Birthday gift for Stina.

I like this quote 'cause I think it's important to remember that the revolutionary struggle isn't some macho war ideal, it's life. It's the everyday choices we make, the choice to fight back, stand up and take control in ways that can differ a lot from time to time, situation to situation and person to person.

And I don't mean that in some sort of neo-liberal "anything goes!" way, but more in a "don't put yourself down 'cause you're not doing enough, look at the things you do, the choices you make & feel proud of them" way.

Edit: Sorry for sounding like a stupid self help book. Will do better in the future.

Thanks! I'm no good with words right now, but some day I'll try to explore the subject a little bit more.
