“The direction that I am heading to is to be a playmaker. I have accepted the fact that you need to do the things you need to do; at that time, at that moment, at that place. However, in life, nothing is certain. So, if changes come, you just have to roll with it. In life, we have to trust ourselves and our guts, and just go for it. If you don’t do anything, nothing will be changed.”

「私は変化をもたらせる人になりたい。その時、その瞬間、その場所でやらなければならないことがあるという現実は受け入れた。でも、私の人生は何も決まってない。変化が訪れたら、それを迎えればいい。自分を信じて、向き合えばいい。何もしないと、何も変わらない。」
sage has the coolest name, the bluest hair, and the wildest energy. what started as a comment on how his hair so perfectly matched the minneapolis skyline turned into a conversation about his dreams of ivy league schools, traveling to far off lands, and studying other planets as an astrophysicist. we can learn so much from spending time with those who dream + allow themselves to be inspired. i’m not quite sure what astrophysicists actually do, but i’m sure whatever sage does he will do with such excellence.
with an e-cig in one hand, and a necklace full of tokens from franciscans and saints in the other, chris passionately explained his love for the mothers and fathers of the church. he was so welcoming and kind, and even invited us to gather with him and his friends to study the bible together. he has fallen in love with the deep traditions of the church, but with a fresh perspective which listens, respects, and welcomes people into community.
today was such a beautiful day in downtown minneapolis, and my friend + i decided to take a walk. oftentimes, our fear of being offensive keeps us from asking the very questions which connect us, which is what i found to be true when we stopped at a bus stop + had the privilege of meeting this incredible woman. i asked her what the diamond on her forehead symbolizes in her culture, and she went on to explain to me the meaning behind why indian women wear bindi’s, and the value for marriage that she holds. she shared with us that she has been married 10 years, and we even got to see pictures of her cute little sons that she is so proud of!
Imagine living a life not just doing what you love but also making a difference to the world? Dr.Sarah has a PhD in glaciology! How often do you hear that?

Sarah was studying in New England and there was an internship to assist a military scientist. She took up the offer which resulted in her lifelong love for glaciers and Alaska. She has spent 23 years of her life researching on glaciers, she received her PhD and also worked as a research specialist for NASA.

She is on voluntary "retirement" and is now guiding people on Glacier hikes. I put retirement in quotes because she does not look a day older than 30. "I came to learn something, but nothing could prepare me for the grandeur that is Alaska. I fell in love and I decided to make it home. I love to talk about this and I'm so grateful that I get to do it everyday" she says.

She lives in a cut-off part of Alaska and has to make a three hour drive to the nearest city every week for groceries, but she would not have it any other way.

“The best part would be that you get to see the kids in a different environment than you do in the classroom. See, the best thing about phys ed is that we get to see them both in the classroom: the health class, and the gym. So we really get to see different parts of the student, and hopefully, they’re having  fun. So that’s the best part. The hardest part? I have a hard time thinking of the hardest part. Sometimes if the facilities aren’t available you have to change your lesson plan. But, you know, for the most part, it’s a good job.”⁠

Ganhei o livro "Humans of New York" de uma amiga querida, na época que eu fazia as entrevistas sobre o sentido da vida para o Blog Vidaria. Quem não conhece o projeto, o fotógrafo Brandon Stanton catalogou na obra algumas das fotos que tirou das mais diversas pessoas pelas ruas de NY! Fazia sempre a foto e uma mini entrevista, com destaque de uma frase do fotografado! O projeto segue no @humansofny

Back to back pictures from the Washington Square Park (WSP). As I had mentioned, WSP is right in the middle of the New York University campus and attracts a whole lot of young students all through the day. The park, a popular hotspot for the locals and tourists alike, has multiple forms of recreation, with an ever-changing array of performers, buskers, musicians and spontaneous jams. We had reached the park a few minutes after sunset, as the park lights came on and the blue hour set in. I first spotted this young girl, standing on the bench, dancing carefree to the melodies of the song played by the middle-aged man. I do not know if they were together or had met just a few moments ago, but it didn’t matter. By the time I approached her, she had switched from the role of a dancer to an attentive listener. The historic Washington Square Arch dominates the background.

"My father just died.  I have been sitting here for sometime,  thinking and planning his burial in my head.  He lived a fulfilled life and died at the ripe #old #age of 95 years old.  I am grateful I was able to take care of him and celebrated him while he was still alive.  I have learned to show love to those I value while ther are living because #death can come at anytime.  I don't want to have much regrets and spend scarce resources for a burial,  that was why I celebrated my #father while he was still living.  Now he can happily rest in peace and I hope to live long enough to reach 95 years some day."

LOVE ON THE BRAIN
I took this photo while volunteering as a #photographer for a #charity in #Vancouver whose focus is to provide meals for the #homeless, and people struggling with #addiction and mental health issues. 
I asked him if I could take a picture. He agreed and swiftly woke up his #friend who had fallen asleep while waiting for the food to arrive. They kissed as she struggled to stay #awake. It was #beautiful to see that #people are still able to find #love even in the darkest places.

Four separate ice cream cones. Four similar end results. When you like chocolate ice cream this much, sometimes it just gets a little messy.

Danut from @findinghopeministries shows us the right way to eat ice cream. .

What impressed me as an outsider visiting New York was the number of public parks that dotted Manhattan, despite the astronomic real estate prices. While none comes close to Central Park in terms of area as well as the options it offered to the city residents, the Washington Square Park, located in midtown surrounded by the NYU Campus, is my second favourite. I have only been here twice, on both occasions during late evenings, the park being the culmination of long walks across the city. Washington Square Park, bustling with both locals and tourists, has multiple forms of recreation, with an ever-changing array of performers, buskers, musicians and spontaneous jams. A young Stanley Kubrick is known to have played chess and the likes of Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg have performed here. Home to the impressive Washington Square Arch and a beautiful fountain, the park has a kind of vibe which immediately connected with me.

I call all my art as Pouli - “Pouli” means bird in Greek. A bird knows no boundaries, no limitations. Unbound is exactly what we believe art is, don’t we? Liberated as a bird, a piece of Art is a representation of what one truly believes in.

I was born and brought up in a small town. While I was growing up, I was a rebel, but it gradually faded away as if being vocal was futile. Gradually I found the medium of exhibiting it in any form of art as the best way! I used to doodle with my grandfather. He would guide me with various colour combinations and concepts. Then it was my mom who introduced me to the world of canvas painting as a form of expression. All the emotions, be it anger, love, strength, fragility, sensuality, perception, liberty or pride have found their way in my works of Art. But, there was a beauty in the fact that I started to paint my emotional chaos which eventually became my area of expertise. I could feel what others were/might be going through. I could feel the need for acceptance. I could feel the emptiness in the eyes of others. I could feel what remained unsaid. 
The stepping stone in my life was my first formal painting exhibition at Lamakaan, one of the most loved art and culture youth-hub. However, my vision is to create an impact by opening my workshop (and gallery) for visitors, conducting exhibitions across the country and creating awareness on the need for acceptance and on mental well-being.

Believe in yourself - always. Even when nothing's making sense or working out, believe that you will sail through. At times when you are caught up amidst the chaos of failures, remember that it is your duty towards yourself to keep trying. Your life is a challenge, don’t sit back but fight. .

what does it look like to speak out in a world full of injustice? what does it mean to come against oppression in an age of dissension? and how do we use our voices to be advocates for those with perspectives far different from our own?

thank you julius for being so willing so speak out. thank you for having convictions, and for sticking with them. and thank you for diligently fighting on behalf of others.
you know how sometimes you come across those dumb pinterest quotes n they say stuff like “she is sunshine in human form”? well i hate those quotes too... but in this case it’s really so true. the first time i met olivia was about a month ago, and now i get so excited to see her whenever i go to @fivewattcoffee . she has the most joyful spirit + positive attitude. she looks at live with a sense of gratitude + never fails to approach situations with creativity. today a huge crowd of people came into the shop all at once: a nightmare for a barista. but instead of getting frustrated, she told me that she loves when that happens because it is such an empowering + accomplished feeling to handle stressful situations! a beautiful perspective.
“This is going to sound stupid and philosophical but it’s okay to value time differently than other people at Strath Haven. Everyone is kind of racing against the clock and that’s just not necessary all the time. It’s always... you're doing something to pass the time because your parents want you to be involved. Or you’re doing something in order to finish in time and that’s just not always how you’re going to work. You don't need to have the same schedule as everyone else and that’s beautiful.”

"I have known him for sometime as a Barrister who lives in this area.  Most times when he's leaving for work,  we exchanged greetings and few words about business.  Very early one morning,  he came to my shop and said his car battery refused to start so he needed to buy a new battery for his car to enable him get to work.  He wanted to buy the battery that sells for ₦10,000 but he had only ₦3,000 with him that morning.  He promised that immediately he got back from work,  he would bring the balance.  He seemed sincere and I had no reason to doubt him,  so I took the money and sold him the battery.  Unlike him,  I didn't see him that evening.  When I managed to sight him 2 days after,  he apologized and promised to pay by month's end.  He never did and tactically began to avoid me.  So one morning,  I went to his house.  When I knocked,  he peeped through a pigeon hole and went back.  His little daughter then opened the door and told me her father wasn't around.  I told her his car was downstairs but she said someone else brought the car home.  I was surprised a man I clearly saw with my own eyes can school a little child in the perfect art of lying.  I came back to my shop and kept looking out for him.  At long last when I saw him,  he gave me ₦4,000 and that was it.  He was angry with me,  saying he knew the law and when to pay his bills.  Till today,  he is still owing me the balance for that battery and hasn't finished paying for it.  I felt really sad because I helped him with a good heart,  hoping he would reciprocate same by paying for the battery and even telling his friends about my business.  But he never did.  While I was deeply hurt by this barrister's actions,  I made sure that experience didn't make me a bad person who would refuse helping others if need be.  I am a good person and not even a man who knows the law but doesn't know how to pay his bills can change that."

These are unforgettable clicks from my visit to the #911memorial & museum in New York City three years ago. The monument not only symbolises insurmountable loss but also the spirit of standing up & overcoming adversity. 
Over the years, I’ve known & come across two dozen or so individuals who’ve faced unmentionable hardships & shared their tragic stories after being victims of terrorism across India, America and Belgium.

My deepest condolences & prayers to everyone affected by the scourge of terrorism, especially the ones with whom I’ve shared a close bond. You’ll know who you are. 
If there must be a fight, we must fight for PEACE.

Speed is almost synonymous with New York as I have said earlier. But with speed comes stress, something that I have witnessed often in New York. People sleeping in the subway, people sprawled on the benches, or like the guy here dozing off in the busy junction of Oculus and that too early in the day. But life in New York stops for no one. Life moves on, as it must.
