I have lived nearly fifty years, and I have seen life as it is. Pain, misery, hunger ... cruelty beyond belief. I have heard the singing from taverns and the moans from bundles of filth on the streets. I have been a soldier and seen my comrades fall in battle ... or die more slowly under the lash in Africa. I have held them in my arms at the final moment. These were men who saw life as it is, yet they died despairing. No glory, no gallant last words ... only their eyes filled with confusion, whimpering the question, "Why?"
I do not think they asked why they were dying, but why they had lived. When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. To seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!
- Miguel de Cervantes
1. If you adopt, you’ll save a life
Around 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States simply because too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters.
Because there is limited space at shelters, staff members sometimes need to make very hard decisions to euthanize animals who haven’t been adopted.
The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.
By adopting from a private humane society or animal shelter, rescue group, or the local animal-control agency, you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.
I Died Today. By Duke Roberts.
And I ate a lot of hamburgers. We had a party. Note: This wasn’t my dog or situation; I thought it was worth sharing though. The photos and captions on this post have been reproduced as they originally appeared on photographer Robyn Arouty’s blog. http://www.robynarouty.com/
And I laughed.
Whether legal or illegal, drugs come in all different shapes and sizes including small painkiller pills, liquid cough syrup, and everything in between. These many forms are easy to see with the naked eye but, artist Sarah Schönfeld wondered how the substances might react with other chemicals.
Posing the questions, What all these substances actually look like when their essence is visually depicted?, she took drops of various drugs and squeezed them onto negative film that had already been exposed.
In reaction with the film coating, the chemicals grew and expanded into amorphous shapes and vibrant colors that produced wonderfully abstract photographs, a series called All You Can Feel. She explains, “The shapes and colors that appeared showed unique characteristics and revealed unique internal universes.”
