I am not sure how we jumped from January to April (or, at least, that is how it feels to me) but here we are, with Spring in full bloom. Two things always happen to me in Spring: I want to sleep longer and I reawaken to the world, which means that I end up being very busy, doing a million things I wouldn’t have considered two months ago. April also means my trip to see sofagirl (and the elephants) is six weeks closer! Have a wonderful weekend.
One. Admit that, at least once in your life, you thought of dropping everything and wander the world. This British couple did it, by car. And this is their story of what it is really like.
Two. “History is not on your side”. A Holocaust survivor, and proud Californian, faces off with the Director of ICE (the immigration police), at an immigration forum in Sacramento. It was caught on camera – very powerful.
Four. Statues of Buddha in Japanese cemeteries are sometimes dressed in colorful clothes, to protect the souls of dead children. Sad and beautiful images.
Five. Elephants stuck in mud in Cambodia and a community coming together to save them. For no other reason that 1) they are my favorite animals, b) sofagirl sent it to me.
