Signs for the Homeless
An exchange project for homeless people by artists Kenji Nakayama & Christopher Hope
One of the best outreach projects I have ever seen.
…Watch this. Love your lover’s body. Love your body like you’d love your lover’s body.
And, I feel the most beautiful when I know someone doesn’t see my shape, or color or height, but instead looks me in the eyes and smiles at me, takes my hand, or holds my shoulders, and authentically shares themselves with me.
ladies, you need to watch!

The Most Colorful River in the World
For most of the year, Caño Cristales in Colombia looks like any other river: a bed of rocks covered in dull green mosses are visible below a cool, clear current. However, for a brief period of time every year, the river blossoms in a vibrant explosion of colors. During the short span between the wet and dry seasons, when the water level is just right, a unique species of plant that lines the river floor called Macarenia clavigera turns a brilliant red. It is offset by splotches of yellow and green sand, blue water, and a thousand shades in between.
