Guess.What.Day.It.Is?


Notes:

  • Source: Vox.com – Awesome photos show how Google is using a camel to map deserts. When Google wants to create its Street View maps — the ones that show the buildings and sidewalks that line the world’s streets — it sends a funny-looking car with a camera on top off to capture the footage. Those StreetView cars work great in places where there are roads. But in the world’s more remote locations — a desert in Abu Dhabi, lets say — vehicles don’t cut it. Enter Raffia, the camel carrying a camera across the Liwa oasis to produce more Google Maps.

  • Photograph by Sergei Reoutov with Camel, Socota Island: “On the dunes of Socotra island, Yemen. Seconds later the camel set off in a run down the dunes, its feet sinking into the sand. It vanished behind the dunes, leaving me with this picture and the most awe-inspiring memories of Socotra.”

Saturday Morning

…it is winter here.
Look how white everything is,
how quiet, how snowed-in.
I am learning peacefulness, lying by myself quietly
As the light lies on these white walls, this bed, these hands…

To lie with my hands turned up and be utterly empty.
How free it is, you have no idea how free——
The peacefulness is so big it dazes you,
And it asks nothing, a name tag, a few trinkets…

~ Sylvia Plath, from Tulips in Collected Poems

Diner En Blanc


It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon.

You are in Paris.

You have no plans for the evening.

Your phone rings.

It’s an invitation to the annual Diner En Blanc.

You and “13,000 people, dressed elaborately in white, will converge at a secret location (in Paris) for the annual DINER EN BLANC.  In fifteen minutes they will position 4,000 tables, unveil miles of linens, crystal, sterling and epicurean delicacies. You’ll eat, drink and dance until midnight at which time you’ll will depart as swiftly as you arrived.   [Read more…]
