A photo of two girls hugging each other and looking at the camera while a boy behind them is holding some flowers. They are children, it is innocent and joyous.
This Week's "I want to go to there": hugs and cuddles with friends! Can't wait to get those back...

Refuse Pain


“Look into your own heart, discover what it is that gives you pain and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else.”
—Karen Armstrong

Epic Dance


Since the only caption to this video is in a language I don't understand, there is little to nothing I can tell you about it except that the dancing is beautiful! It also makes me wistful for the days when we could touch each other.


Look for Magic


A good citizen went to her local Costco and replaced the signs for sold out toilet paper and hand sanitizer with signs for sold out mystical items. Turns out, her town had a big run on summoning orbs and healing crystals!

Cheap Trick


Artist Tomohiro Yasui takes cheap toys and turns them into action figures, photographing his process so you can see pop bottles, rubber duckies, and accordion hammers turn into epic figures fighting for good (or evil). These could very well be #isolationcreations, except that he's been doing it for a while.

Soft Shell


If you need a reminder that you don't have to harden yourself to stay safe, a sheep escaped its farm and spent 6 years in the mountains. In that time, he grew so much wool (60 pounds!) that the wolves who tried to eat him couldn't get through all that floof.
