Dating isn’t easy, no matter who you are. This is a great Attenborough clip about wasps and orchids.
Original is on my site here.

orchids can be so cruel.

"There are many stories of people who were actually able to see the awakened state by breaking into laughter —seeing the contrast, the irony of polar situations. For instance, there was the hermit whose devotee lived several miles away in a village. This devotee supported the hermit, supplying him with food and the other necessities of life. Most of the time, the devotee sent his wife or daughter or son to bring the hermit his supplies; but one day the hermit heard that the donor himself was coming to see him. The hermit thought, “I must impress him, I must clean and polish the shrine objects and make the shrine very neat and my room extremely tidy.” So he cleaned and rearranged everything until his shrine looked very impressive with bowls of water and butter lamps burning brightly. And when he had finished, he sat down and began to admire the room and look around. Everything looked very neat, somehow unreal, and he saw that his shrine appeared unreal as well. Suddenly, to his surprise, he realized that he was being a hypocrite. Then he went into the kitchen and got hand-fulls of ashes and threw them at the shrine until his room was a complete mess. When his patron came, he was extremely impressed by the natural quality of the room, by its not being tidy. The hermit could not hold himself together. He burst into laughter and said, “I tried to tidy myself and my room, but then I thought perhaps I should show it to you this way.” And so they both, patron and hermit, burst into laughter. That was a great moment of awakening for both of them."

I am prone to make fun of my boss on Tumblr, but she’s really quite incredible. She’s one of those people that is often an individual’s “the only one I trust.”

Today I helped a woman count out piles of bills of various denominations because she was headed to jail tonight and wanted to leave all of her money with my boss for safe keeping.

My boss is a health care provider. She is a single mom. She is a dancer. She is an entrepreneur. She is saving people lives in so many ways on a daily basis. 

She is also my best friend.

Like balls of fluff, cuscus species are some of the most adorable marsupials on the planet

What a sweet little face. This is the common spotted cuscus (Spilocuscus maculatus) from all over Papua New Guinea and the far north region of Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula.Like a white chocolate and caramel puff the size of a house cat, this species is wrapped in an incredibly beautiful coat, the females in an overall creamy colour with a ginger face, and the males ginger all over with a network of white splotches arranged like dappled sunlight…

Just a reminder:  If God didn’t want us to eat children, he wouldn’t have made them out of meat.
