Thought Provoking

always stray. never linger


the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

Milk & Honey is a breakfast, lunch, craft coffee and gelato shop in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Local, high-quality, homemade and, most importantly, real- the Milk & Honey brand was a dream project in every sense of the word.

One day, whether you
are 14,
or 65

you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.

However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––

is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives.

It’s been at least a couple weeks since we last visited the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship, which is really far too long. Thank goodness for these cuddly litters of Vom Flussblick German Shepherds and Michigan Mini Juliana Pigs, both being raised by the same breeder in Augusta, Michigan.

The puppies and piglets are all raised indoors and spend their early lives socializing with each other and they appear to get along famously. The combination of wee puppy yips and piglet grunts must be dangerously cute.

You can keep track of all of these furry babies by following their respective Facebook pages. Click here for the puppies and here for the piglets.
