melancholy + sadness + hope + beauty

With all the sadness and pain in the world, today I feel moved to share something melancholy yet magnificent. Sad song with an uplifting ending. Because sometimes life is like that. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

girl power + poverty + change + social justice

Further to the amazing BECAUSE I’M A GIRL website about issues affecting
young girls in the developing world, there’s going a new book of stories from
around the world. BECUZ I’M A GIRL
Sorry to be sort of tweetie today rather than bloggy,
but wanted to spread the word.

New Year’s Revolution

So here it is. A new year a new decade. A new start. Then again every day, every minute is a new beginning.At the risk of repeating myself, I am going to once more present one of the most extraordinary things I saw last year. It’s an audio + photo essay of people living in slums around the world. Proud people who invited other people into their very humble (and by our standards awful) homes. We have so much that sometimes we forget how little we actually need. Home Sweet Home

I also did a peruse of my postings of late and realized water is a big theme. Over 70% of the world is covered in water. And about 60% of our bodies are made up of water. WATER IS LIFE. Which brings me to another astonishing website – about a film called WaterLife. Drink in this amazing and beautiful and important information.
