“Any time you can have perspective about what you have in your life and what you can give, that’s good for your mind and soul. That rush, feeling like I’m doing something besides looking at my phone, or worrying about the next job, or complaining about traffic — that can give you a lot of gratitude”

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture that so fully summed up what it is to be a cat owner.

After some critical thinking, I think I’ve figured out I have a very specific yet very steadfast type I tend to ship. And it explains why I have fallen so hard for Claire/Jamie on Outlander almost as much as I did for Kurt/Blaine.
1) A protagonist (Claire/Kurt) who is an outsider in a less-than-friendly situation who is goal-oriented, a bit stubborn, and determined to make it through.
2) A love interest (Blaine/Jamie) who is a charismatic, natural leader, but sometimes feels like an outsider himself. Not quite close with anybody even though he is well-liked.
3) Upon meeting said Protagonist, Love Interest feels an innate desire to protect Protagonist. However, Protagonist constantly surprises Love Interest with their strong character, true grit, and more than capable ability to fend for themself in an unfriendly world.
4) Love Interest, used to being the caregiver in situations, is surprised by Protagonist’s ability to emotionally disarm them and be a caretaker for them.
5) One falls hard yet keeps silent (except for the longing looks and UST) while the other is oblivious until one day…
6) Me: 😍😍😍😍😍😍
Completely flustered, I said “Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp,”.
"It’s Fraser. James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser."
i keep going back to look at this
i made a shocking discovery today
Tokyo-based artist Makoto Azuma doesn’t appear to believe in doing things by halves. His latest installation looks at the universe, beyond Earth, as a site for appreciating beauty and art. Two pieces, a Japanese white pine bonsai known as the “Shiki 1”, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, hydrangeas, lilies and irises, were launched into the stratosphere last week in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. This is part of project Exobotanica – Botanical Space Flight (see more pictures here), where Azuma heads a 10 person team, coupled with Sacramento-based JP Aerospace — “America’s Other Space Program”, a volunteer-based organization that constructs and sends vessels into orbit.
Azuma is interested in the beauty of organic movement in plants, and how this beauty would be suspended in space as a weightless environment. The objects themselves – the bonsai plant and the flower arrangement, have an almost uneasy juxtaposition in their nature. On the one hand, they are organic, Earth-bound items that send instant connotations to the viewer about the beauty of our natural world, yet both represent a natural world moulded by human hands – the miniaturised tree and the specifically arranged flowers. In the end, they can almost be seen less as art and more as specific examples of Earthly design; an amalgamation of human and mother nature’s architecture, broadcast to the universe beyond.
But equally as stunning is the documentary imagery itself, taken from orbit and brought back to Earth. Oh to see what those blossoms have seen!
