Frida Catlo

Artist Nia Gould created a book detailing the history of art in 21 cats - it includes Frida Catlo, Henri Catisse, Vincat Van Gogh, and more. It's adorable!

Be Silly

“None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after-thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”
-Nanea Hoffman

High-Def Outer Space

Photographer Andrew McCarthy took 50,000 photos of the moon and stars to combine into one image, making it a super high-resolution photo. I have never seen the moon look quite like this, it's stunning.

Then and Now

Looking at Ard Gelinck's photos combining images of celebrities now with pictures from their youth made me cry. So many of them are hugging or otherwise showing great love and affection for their past selves, and it is super beautiful to think about! WHat if you could go back and give your past self a hug?

It's Pinteresting

People go to Pinterest to find inspiration all the time - but when the makers of Pinterest discovered that people were also using their platform to spread anti-vaxxer nonsense, they had to decide what to do. Facebook (and other platforms) have struggled to shut down misinformation on their channels, but Pinterest didn't have that problem. They simply removed the information from their platform. Now, if you search "vaccine", you get no search results.

A spokesperson simply said, "We’re a place where people come to find inspiration, and there is nothing inspiring about harmful content."

I love it.
