You need to go out into the world and see things. Find things out. Drink your coffee and sit down to think about things. Think about who you are, where you are, where you come from. Don’t forget where you come from. You’re a small fish in a big pond. That’s why it’s so important to travel. Everyday look down at your feet and say "this is where I am. This is where I’m standing now, I’ve not been in this moment before, and I probably won’t be again.". Realize that you should never get angry with where you are at any given time. Better times will come. Better times will come for all of us.
How does one take a picture of Matthew Shultz during a Cage The Elephant performance…? They don’t. (at Joe Louis Arena)
These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.
This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

"Each time you read a book, a tree smiles knowing there’s life after death."
Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.
I am the sea and nobody owns me.
If I can’t fly home for Aquacade next year, I’ll go insane from missing my crazy ass Westacrians too much. Cheers to another successful year 🇺🇸🍻 (at The Cult)
