soar.

Standard

with the absence of so many humans

the animals have reclaimed their territory

and even branched out to try things that might be new

when i saw this goose standing full of pride and bravado on top of the bridge

all i could think of was that scene from ‘titanic’ when jack said to rose:

“i’m the king of the world!”

and he believed that for a little while.

 

“the higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly”

the tipping point.

Standard

saw this in the early morning when walking downtown 

I wonder about the story behind how it got there

was it a server at his/her limit

 finally reaching the tipping point

throwing down the apron 

tying them down

abandoning ship

hoping for

something better/different/new out there?

‘a single act of courage is often the tipping point for extraordinary change.’

Boars🐗, frogs🐸, naga🐲, lions🦁and tigers🐯 and elephants🐘, oh my! 

During the BBC’s coverage of the ongoing cave rescue operation in Thailand, they came across this adorable cartoon by Bangkok-based illustrators Sisidea, which caught their attention after it was shared on Facebook by the Thai Navy Seal team. 

This is what Aruni Aunhawarakorn and Jantima Manasviyoungkul (the people who drew the picture) had to say:  “We are so, so happy at the news and our cartoon shows our appreciation from the Thai people – to everyone around the world who have been involved in the search as well as those [unsung heroes] who haven’t been mentioned.” 

“from caring comes courage.”

World Refugee Day 

In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees. On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20th, the United Nations commemorates the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. This year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee and to stand for their right to stay together as a family unit.

“it is the obligation of every person born in a safer room

to open the door when someone in danger knocks.”
