Keith Haring - “The Life of Christ”

triptych that serves as an altarpiece in the Interfaith AIDS Chapel at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, which serves as a memorial for those killed by AIDS and a place of refuge for those currently suffering from the disease. Keith Haring’s last piece before his own death from AIDS.

If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense: nothing would be what it is because everthing would be what it isn’t, and contrary wise: what it is it wouldn’t be it would. You see?

~Greetings from the zen space of Jah-feels yurt~ I welcome you all to take a seat with me. As we breathe. Together. Inhale. Exhale. Om. Inhale. Exhale. Om. Rain is falling. I am warm in this cocoon. Blessed with incense smoke of sage and palo santo. I stare up into the sunlight. White rays shine in from the circle above my bed. I am alive. I remember the breath. Inhale. Exhale. Om. Repeat. Smoke fills the room. I breathe it all in. Another form of connection to the mother. Herbs taking root in her ground. Picked to dry and pass around. Smudging to heal. Lit with intention. I honor the light. Expanding my lungs. Praise up. Giving thanks. Grateful for this day. Jah. Grateful. Here. Grateful now.✨

  • males and females are known as jack and jills and I love that!!
  • they’re grey brown in the summer and white in the winter!! it’s like they’re metamorphmagi tonks would be so proud
  • in north america they’re called snowshoe hares because of their wide feet
  • native to scotland so you’d probably see some chilling in the hogwarts grounds
  • also the only rabbits/hares native to the uk! who knew?
  • they have a cyclical population that peaks every ten years or so but nobody knows why….. mysterious

you know, I’ve heard the story of the tortoise  &&  the hare my whole life, and people always fall back on the whole slow and steady wins the race thing.   but ( with apologies to charlie sheen ) what if it was never about winning ?   the fact that this adage turns every accomplishment into a competition is already problematic.   but too often, if we can’t finish something right away, we don’t think it’s worth doing, or if we can’t be amazing at something on our very first try, we don’t bother doing it ever again.   what if instead, it’s slow and steady FINISHES the race, and we all just focus on reaching our own finish lines, in our own time, instead of worrying about everyone else’s ?

Hare is a verb???

I’m officially never using “sprinting” again. Every character I write will be haring all over the place unless there has already been haring in the sentence and even then, it will be a debate I have to have with myself about whether my love of haring is more important than the penchant for avoiding repetitious word use in English writing.

A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit.

The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road and got out to see what had become of the rabbit. Much to his dismay, the rabbit was dead. The driver felt so awful he began to cry.

A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.

“I feel terrible,” he explained. “I accidentally hit this rabbit and killed it.”

The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to he car trunk and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the rabbit. Miraculously, the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped down the road.

50 meters away the rabbit stopped, turned around, waved at the two again, hopped down the road another 50 meters, turned, waved, and hopped another 50 meters.

The man was astonished. He couldn’t figure out what substance could be in the woman’s spray can! He ran over to the woman and demanded, “ What was in your spray can? What did you spray onto that rabbit?”

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: “ ‘Hare Spray’ Restores Life to Dead Hare. Adds Permanent Wave.”

jggirl  asked:

So did you create Jack Savage or was he originally a character in Zootopia? Where does he come from everyone is freaking out and I'm in the dark. Help please!!

Hi dear, thank you for posting your question here.
Jack Savage was the supposed-to-be main character of the first Zootopia concept, even before Nick and Judy. He was a secret agent who travelled the world, did cool things around the globe, fought bad guys, explored new mysterious places and so on. I was really, really cool in my opinion. However, when the idea behind Zootopia changed in what we actually know, of course there was no more room for him in the story. Which, still in my opinion, is a big shame because I think he’s a great character.

We don’t know much about him, but I managed to grasp some information which led me to these conclusions:
he’s very calm, smart, serious and brave. He trained hard in order to become what he’s today and he had to deal with a lot of animals who looked at him from up to down just because he’s a hare. He spent his life around the world, doing spectacular things that only few animals got the chance to know about. He probably acted like a hero but behind the scene so that nobody would know him or the things he did (which is pretty sad, if you ask me).
However, he never complained. He chose this path and walked it without a single regret. He “condamned” himself to a lonely life because he literally hasn’t the time to settle on, because he’s a spy and, I mean, how could he have a girlfriend? But it doesn’t mean he hasn’t eyes, or heart, or desires. Just he doesn’t have the time to satisfy them (and probably he doesn’t really care too much)… that’s why, when he saw Judy, he couldn’t help but think: “oh… oh. She’s a cop and… she’s cute”, but you can’t really blame him for that.

So, how can you mercilessy hate him? He’s so cute, so dedicated, so blind… probably he’s a mess with sentimental stuff, he doesn’t even know what courting a female really means. He’s pure… in his awesomeness, he’s pure. Almost like a baby. ❤
