So I missed it by a day..
International seal day was on 22 March. I have been very fortunate to have spent large amounts of time underwater with these amazing creatures. Playful, exuberant and friendly, it is hard to imagine a valid reason to justify either hunting or culling these amazing animals. Yet Denmark, Canada, Namibia, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Finland, Sweden, and Greenland all allow seal hunts.
To pick on one, Namibia culls over 90,000 seals each year because of a discredited report that claimed that seals consume huge amount of fish and this would result in fish stocks being wiped out.

As the planet’s climate changes, the polar regions are the most directly and visibly affected. Polar flux seeks to show the splendor their unique wildlife and landscape while highlighting a place that is in a state of ecological transition.

Everything will be alright in the end so if it is not alright it is not the end.

MAKE ME FEEL || Lost that loving fucking feeling way back when. Not sure when the rest followed. Now just an empty husk, walking this world, waiting to disintegrate. Still see things, just don’t feel things. I’ve mistaken the rain for my own tears; but it was just Mother Nature’s lie, a false sense of hope that I could still feel. And still, I keep moving on. Life nothing but a series of consecutive red X’s drawn through the days of the week on a calendar, pinned to a board, nailed to an otherwise empty wall. Patiently waiting for the day of that last red X; the day that I eat my own gun, wondering if I will be able to feel something, even if it’s just a bullet in my brain. Listen to the song “Closedown” by the Cure on repeat, because I think it’s about me; thinking that maybe it will make me break down and cry. [“I’m running out of time. I'm out of step and closing down. And never sleep for wanting hours. The empty hours of greed. And uselessly always the need to feel again. The real belief of something more than mockery. If only I could fill my heart with love.”] But still, I don’t cry. Even though the song is beautiful. Even though the song is sad. Even though I fucking love it. In the end, my love is just a mockery. Seek the broken and the abused; fall for the victims of life’s cosmic comic tragedy. I’ve become an emotional plague doctor in search of an emotional disease. Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, I sweetly whisper. Tell me all your secrets. Infect me with your lies. Kill me with your misery. Just make me fucking feel. And still, I try. Always knew that I would end up alone, on my own. But never did I think that I would end up here, in this place. Standing on the edge of a deep green sea. Just like I once did, in a dream, when I was only three. And am I dreaming now? Or is this reality? My breath catching in my throat, the sea about to devour me. But before the ocean can take me, I feel this wet sensation on my face, all over me. I can’t tell if it’s the salty spray of the ocean, or if I’ve been made to feel again. || [Ho'okipa Beach, Maui County, Hawaiʻi, 01.16.18]
The adrenaline and famous Gondola at Timang Beach. Approximately 3 hours of driving from the city of Jogja to this place. The road to the beach is not well paved, so you will need to rent for a jeep, the cost if I’m not mistaken about Rp 350k (return). Anyway, I did not take the Gondola ride, too scary to go! 😂
