За окном чудеса. ☀️Погода благоволит к продуктивному завершению недели, чего всем желаю.
А для нужного настроя #шуткаминутка
В одной семье было два сына- близнеца. Один оптимист, а другой пессимист.
Один все время радовался жизни, а другого родители довольным и не видели. И решили они детей уровнять. В день их рождения, пессимиста порадовать - купили красивую деревянную лошадку, а оптимисту – кучку лошадиного говна... Утром пессимист в слезах: сплошное огорчение...-"Не белая, а коричневая, грива куцая, хвост не той длины."
Заглядывают в комнату к сыну-оптимисту -"А у меня лошадка живая! Но вот только убежала куда то!"
"My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together." -Desmond Tutu
Tutu's words ring extra true tonight, surrounded by divisive politics and a nativist perspective of "us" and "them" that seems to wholly lack in trust, compassion, or belief in synergistic existence with the people around us. "Ubuntu....the essence of being human...gentleness, hospitality, putting yourself out on behalf of others..." We need to instill these values more strongly in society if we want it to become more compassionate, and that can only happen if we lead by example. Pay attention to the strangers you pass tomorrow. Look them in the eye, recognize their humanity and individuality, don't just cross their path. I'm going to try to do that, at least.
I took this photo on a popular overlook on the Blue Ridge parkway. Sitting on a rock with my camera and watching a peaceful sunset, a blur of humanity surrounded me - an engagement photo shoot, a group of college kids working hard to get the perfect 'gram, a family of three who drove up after dinner, a steady stream of cars pulling over nearby for just a minute or two, a few other people perched on the cliffs watching the sun slowly fall. But despite the relative crowd, interactions were mostly positive. A woman asked before walking in front of my camera. A man moved on request to let me get a particular shot when the lighting was perfect. A couple politely requested that I snap some photos of them. I generally seek wilderness for solitude, beauty, and contemplation, but the presence of pleasant humanity added something special and unexpected to that evening.
We have the power to be that pleasant interaction with a stranger for someone else. Every day, every interaction, we have the power to restore someone's faith in humanity, or erase it.
We can't be human in isolation. Let's choose to be human together.
As much as I love the ocean, the lush forest landscapes were (unexpectedly) my favourite part of this long weekend 🌿 Deep in the Otways

I wanted to create a brand that connected likeminded individuals who share a passion for adventure, the outdoors, and exploring this amazing place. And that’s exactly what has happened. Thank you guys for your support and I urge to continue following along as we have some cool stuff coming your way soon! Cheers to the next adventure into the Sur 🥂 | photo by @mindz.eye
