DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM AMAZON. EVER.

I DON’T CARE WHERE YOU LIVE AND HOW ACCESSIBLE AN INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE IS FROM YOUR APARTMENT/HOUSE AND THAT YOU ARE BROKE BUT STILL WANT TO READ BOOKS.

I survived in New York City working full-time at an independent bookstore for 9.50 an hour and…

Couldn’t figure out how to embed this video here, but it’s beautiful.

Such a great story. Best thing to ever happen to the tiny pianist joke.

I wanted to include an avocado love-related quote from The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death here, but my well-worn copy isn’t currently on my person, so a casual mention will have to do.

Ain’t those avocados just grand, though?

Left: Flowing Waterfall Over Crystalized Magma Under the Winters Full Moon, Japan, 2013. Magma can become crystalized into geometric patterns when cooled down slowly in the earth. The winter full moon lights up the waterfall against the wall of columnar rock formations. Right: Red-Hot Cinders Erupting Skyward in the Midst of a Volcanic Lighing, Sakurajima, Japan, 2013. With the eruption, red-hot cinders are shot up skyward out of the crater and burn in reds and oranges. In the midst of these, blue bolts of volcanic lightning flash.
Last one, I promise. By Takehito Miyatake.

"Fishing Rafts on the Quit Inland Sea at Full Moon, Uchino-umi, Japan, 2013. The Naruto strait is known for its fierce, whirling waves, but there is a quiet inland sea called Uchino-umi just nearby. Scores of fishing rafts were highlighted by the light from the full moon."
By Takehito Miyatake. This might be my favorite - quiet, unassuming, beautiful. I feel calm just looking at it.

"Beached Firefly Squid Light Up the Japanese Coast, Japan, 2013. The hotaru ika, or firefly squid, lives 2,000 feet below the water. In spring, they come up near the surface to spawn, and some of them even wash up on the beaches. A school of squid glowing like jewels looks like a blue band trimming the water’s edge."

"Eruption on Showa Crater in the Midst of Volcanic Lightning, Sakurajima, Japan, 2013. A light snow was falling intermittently on a winter night when I saw numerous blue strips of lightning flash as if to interweave with the scarlet flames. I was entranced by the performance of primary colors that evoked thoughts of the creation of Earth."
