I know I'll see your face again.

"I want to think again of dangerous & noble things. I want to be light & frolicsome. I want to be improbable, beautiful & afraid of nothing, as if i had wings."

Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.

Today is the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to sit in the back of the bus in Montgomery, Ala. And this photograph of President Obama sitting on that exact same bus 57 years later is a poignant reminder of just how much America has changed in half a century. The image was taken at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., where the humble 36-seat General Motors bus is on display. Like this simple picture of the president, the bus is an ordinary thing that represents extraordinary progress.

Stunning photos of Chiang Mai’s Floating Lantern Festival.

Thousands of people gather and launch hot-air lanterns into the night sky. They are made of a thin fabric - usually rice paper. A candle or fuel cell is attached so that when it’s lit, the hot air trapped inside creates enough lift for it to float away. It’s a spectacular sight as thousands of lanterns are released at the same time. The festival is a time to pay respect to higher deities - you say a prayer, make a wish and then watch as your lantern floats away. Many people also believe that the lantern will carry your troubles away with it.
