The Little Boy and the Old Man by Shel Silverstein: 'Said the little boy, Sometimes I drop my spoon. Said the little old man, I do that too. The little boy whispered, I wet my pants. I do too, laughed the old man. Said the little boy, I often cry. The old man nodded. So do I. But worst of all, said the boy, it seems Grown-ups don't pay attention to me. And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand. I know what you mean, said the little old man.' (Image source unknown) #Photography #Hands

Wicked Ice by Thomas Zakowski via 500px #Photography #Ice #Lighthouse #Michigan

  • Katie Kroening

    It's hard to tell with all that ice, lol, but that's not St. Joe, shape's not right

  • Kimberly

    according to this site citing the photographer, it is. http://www.weather.com/trav...

  • Kimberly

    my mistake this photo is obviously a date very close to the one above so I can't confirm the photographer listed is not correct (the water is more frozen in the link image than the one above) but the angle of the shot and even the twists and directions of the icicles are identical.

  • Katie Kroening

    No, you were right...I think it's the outer light in St. Joseph. It just confused me, because in SW mich, we think of the big structure with the red roof as "the St. Joe Lighthouse". This pic shows both structures: http://www.cheslights.org/c.... Sorry about that!

  • Kimberly

    ahhh that makes sense, i've been there a few times, a great little town.

The Grand Canyon Filled With Clouds by Erin Whittaker via io9:SEXPAND The Canyon came to be filled with fog due to what's known as a "temperature inversion," a phenomenon whereby warm and cool air (which typically reside at lower and higher altitudes, respectively) swap places. #Grand_Canyon #Clouds

  • Priester Photography

    I've been there when this happened and it's AMAZING!

  • Pam Christensen

    I live in Arizona, yet I've never been to the Grand Canyon! I need to go! This is so beautiful!

  • Erika Mattila

    Those are CHEMTRAILS in the back. It's man made...just like "climate change" - but not by cars. By chemical aerosol attacks that are, and have been, going on around the world for over a decade.

Dean's Seminar Series: John A. Rogers on the Future of Bio-integrated, Dissolvable Electronics - YouTube #Biosensors

  • Dan Van N

    Yeah, you can keep that rubbish out of the human body. Pretty much guarantied to produce cancers and all kinds of other issues.

  • Dan Van N

    Also, this sounds like it has incredible potential for enslaving society and for extremely evil, nefarious purposes.

    @Dan Uyemura Van N Talk about lack of privacy! Wouldn't the NSA love this? (If they don't already have it?)
