gentle strength.

Standard

after finding a tiny baby mole

who has died

along the side of the road

the kids say a few words on its behalf

and place it in the soft leaves of the woods

as a kind and gentle memorial gesture.

 

“when children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.”

-maria montessori

because i am a dog.

Standard

An adorable Shiba Inu named Ken-kun in Hokkaido, Japan remarkably runs his own sweet potato stand. 

The watchful dog politely tends to whatever the customer needs, however, he is not able to accept payment. That situation is solved with a slot in which to put the money.

Customers need to have the exact amount (or be willing to leave the rest), as a sign on the front of the stand reads:

“Because I am a dog, I can’t give you change.”

“the dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.”

inclusion.

Standard

the kinders made a wonderful house for rocket the turtle,

with many rooms and spaces,

including his very own garden and library.

 

“until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things,

man will not himself find peace.”

-albert schweitzer
