there are many amazing pics from the another man shoot but high key none of them tops harry on that field, laying in the grass, surrounded by flowers, wearing that
soft striped sweater, gently rubbing his eye and smiling
This is my teachers true story. This happened to her parents before she was born. We’ll call them Mary and John (because why not? And I forgot their names.)
So my teacher, Caroline, has a phobia of aliens. Not all aliens but certain ones. The have to be a certain colour, shape, look, etc. (E.T. fits into that category) and when she sees them she will start crying. Shes terrified of them.
Before she was born, her parents were party people. Once she was conceived, they had to stop. They would go out to Mary’s parents place, drive into the middle of the field near the house, lay on top of the truck (or in the bed of the truck) and listen to music, looking up at the stars. One night, when she was 6 months pregnant, they were out there, relaxing. 20 minutes, they were out. 20 minutes of relaxing and listening to music. After 20 minutes, the sky filled with bright, blinding light. They could barely see. John yelled at Mary, “Go! Get off the truck and run towards the house!”. They rolled off the truck and started running, fast as they could. In about 5-10 minutes, they got to the house. The lights had gone by then but they were spooked. The got inside and slammed the door. Marys dad was in the entry way with a gun, all his brothers and family an everyone around him.
He saw them and yelled “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? WE WERE WORRIED SICK ABOUT YOU TWO!”
Both of them were really confused. “We were on the truck! We were there for 20 minutes when the sky lit up and we ran back here!”.
“No! We looked everywhere! In the field, around the truck which was abandoned, in the forest. You were no where! You’ve been missing for 5 (it was either that or 2. Sorry, I can’t remember!) hours! No where!” Her dad said.
“What? We were gone for 20 minutes! What are you talking about?”
No one knows where they were for those missing hours, they don’t remember anything, and they don’t know where the lights came from.
concept: us. laying in a field, buried in the long grass, the sky is blue and the sun is warm on our bodies, my head rests on your chest and you’re telling me all your hopes and dreams and pointing out the shapes in the clouds.
Does anyone else ever get really sad because they’re not living the life they want to live? I want to go on adventures. I want to drive to the beach to watch the sunrise at 6 a.m with coffee and breakfast. I want to explore new cities and try new foods. I want to roam through the woods and swim under waterfalls. I want to lay in the middle of a field with a 6 pack and stare up at the stars. There’s so much I want to do yet here I am not doing any of it.
Do you ever meet someone and you’re just like “wow, I want life with you. I want to take you on that first date that I will spend days planning. I want to take you on that second date that will still be just as nerve racking as the first. I want to share that first kiss with you that will stop my heart. I want to go on countless random adventures with you. I want to walk the streets at 3 a.m and talk about life with you. I want to lay in a field on a blanket with you, looking at the sky, and still think that it’s beauty doesn’t begin to compare to yours. I want to wake up in the middle of the night craving you and be able to turn over and have you right there. I want everything that life has to offer. The beautiful and good things and then scary and dark things. But I want it all with you.”
Back in the 1970s and 1980s, mathematicians working in an area called dynamical systems made use of the ever-advancing computing power to draw computer images of the objects they were working on. What they saw blew their minds: fractal-like structures whose beauty and complexity is only rivalled by Nature itself. At the heart of them lay the Mandelbrot set, which today has achieved fame even outside the field of dynamics.
The Mandelbrot set is a fractal. Fractals are objects that display self-similarity at various scales. Magnifying a fractal reveals small-scale details similar to the large-scale characteristics. Although the Mandelbrot set is self-similar at magnified scales, the small scale details are not identical to the whole. In fact, the Mandelbrot set is infinitely complex. Yet the process of generating it is based on an extremely simple equation involving complex numbers.
The Mandelbrot set is an incredible object that equals infinity. It’s really amazing that the simple iterated equation Z = Z^2 + C can produce such beautiful works of mathematical art.
Loggerhead sea turtles use Earth’s magnetic field to navigate. Though they travel for years at a time, females return to the exact spot of their birth to lay their eggs. If the magnetic field has shifted, they adjust their nesting sites to match it. Source
How do I tell her that she inhabits my mind 24/7, whether I’m trying to sleep, drinking coffee, or driving my car- she is constantly on my mind. I want to be able to hold her hand, or kiss her forehead, I want to be able to lay in a soft field of grass and just talk about anything and everything. When she doesn’t text me- it makes me miss her more and more, and I feel silly for feeling that way. I know she has better things to do then wait by her phone. But I just want her. I want to know what she’s thinking, what’s she’s doing- how she feels. I only want her to feel happy and hate knowing that I cannot do anything to stop the pain she’s going through. I want the good & the bad that comes with her- she’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more. It scares the hell out of me because it seems she doesn’t want the same and I know I’ll probably get hurt but I just want to try. I need to try. I don’t want anybody but her, nobody can compare. If only I could tell her, how do I tell her?
