Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
Let your soul stand cool and composed before a million universes.~ Walt Whitman
Rest in Peace

…Hearing the desperate call of a tiny creature in the water, we see a small reddish bird swimming frantically towards the boat. As we approach, the little head and open squeaking beak, pink body and wings become visible just under the water surface. This is a member of the enormous flock of bee-eaters we’ve come to visit, and it’s exhausted and close to drowning!
The boatman pulls the boat closer and our friend Martin quickly and instinctively offers his open hand to the little creature, which clambers gratefully aboard. This is Martin’s first view of a carmine and he spends the next two hours watching protectively over his tiny charge while it dries out. Its feathers are completely saturated and all it can do is lie there with its eyes closed in the friendly stranger’s hand. …
This weekend’s full moon will be the biggest and brightest of 2013.

It looks like a rainbow exploded, but these multihued rooms are the result of an interactive children’s installation in Australia. Artist Yayoi Kusama replicated a household environment in which everything is painted white, to mimic a blank canvas. This pristine installation, in the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, invited children to interact in a free and highly creative way. Kids who visited the site were equipped with multihued dot stickers and had the liberty to place them anywhere they wanted.
The once white surroundings have since been overpowered by a surge of colors. How could a kid not love going to museums after an experience like this?
