Nogoshi, is this Ramin with a beard?

Haha, yes, this is Ramin Karimloo with a beard (and as always, I love his tattoos). While we’re here, if you’re curious about this (beautiful) man, he’s an amazing singer and is currently starring as Jean Valjean on Les Miserables Broadway. I had the pleasure of seeing his Jean Valjean performance in West End and attended one of his personal concerts in NYC. I even got to meet him (twice!) and he’s very sweet to his fans. Not to mention that he’s a man of color (Iranian Canadian) so yay, representation! Here, listen to him sing "Bring Him Home." 

Also, if you don’t know about the Ice Bucket Challenge, it’s to raise awareness about ALS, which is a terrible disease that severely affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, eventually leading to death. Unfortunately, there’s no known cure or treatment for ALS so there are donations going towards more research. More information about how you can help can be found here.

In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

“I believe pain breeds wolves
and joys give rise to moons.

We grow forests in our bones
so our memories can’t find us.

I believe we hide and haunt ourselves.”

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

  1. Autumn In The White Carpathians
  2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
  3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
  4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan 
  5. Autumn Path
  6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan
  7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan
  8. Dark Hedges In Ireland
  9. Winter Forest Path, Czech Republic
  10. Path Under Blooming Trees In Spring

Gahh, thank you so much, dear reader >//< I can’t wait until I finish revising it (so close!) so I can finally give you the conclusion that’s been outlined in my laptop for almost a year, haha. 

Till then, happy (re)readings~

Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.

Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”
