O SON OF MAN!
“A dewdrop out of the fathomless ocean of My mercy I have shed upon the
peoples of the world, yet found none turn thereunto, inasmuch as
everyone hath turned away from the celestial wine of unity unto the
foul dregs of impurity, and, content with mortal cup, hath put away
the chalice of immortal beauty. Vile is that wherewith he is
contented.”

~Baha’u’llah, Persian Hidden Word #61

Lauren does a lot of things. One of them is taking pictures. Another is baking scones. Yet another is spinning large spheres of fire at the ends of two chains. The only one of these she went to school for, however, was photography. She is currently the Visual Director at Lethal Poetry, an Art Editor for Muzzle Magazine, and most recently, a photographer for Loud Loop Press. Find more of her work on Flickr .
