(5) Things we love…#140

Posted in Things We Love

Au revoir Sam Shepard. A muggy heatwave. A lot of animal videos I can’t stay away from. Have a wonderful weekend.

One. A beautiful remembrance to seal a beautiful friendship.

Two. I always suspected there was a point to my potty mouth. I spotted this on the NY Times’ website: [..] swearing is beneficial beyond making your language more colorful. It can also offer catharsis. A study co-authored by Richard Stephens, a senior lecturer in psychology at Keele University, found that swearing can increase your ability to withstand pain. So when you stub your toe and howl an expletive, it might help you tolerate the pain better.

Three. Whether you love dogs or not, this will help you take your mind off things. If you own a dog, it will give you ideas (your dog might not like).

Four. This came from Leonor of Felt Buddieswho is becoming a reliable provider of fun things. Have a look at all the images – super fun and creative.

Five. Most animals die afer their reproductive functions fade – not so for a handful of them such as gorillas, elephants and orcas. Not sure if they get hot flashes but there is a point to their menopause. And it’s awesome.(Mama elephant and baby picture by fellow safari traveller Mikael).

  1. Mi ha colpito la morte di Sam Shepard, ma anche la notizia che alcuni animali muoiono quando non sono più fertili. Perchè l’ho pensato per gli umani 🙁

  2. Ooh, I’m feeling like a veritable collaborator now 😀
    That dog dancing and wagging his tail all the time is just so wonderful to watch. I wish we could all see these things as fun games to play…
