Today I was supposed to stay in bed and relax, recovering from being sick. Instead I hiked five miles around a lake...whoops 🤷🏼♀️ As I hiked I justified it to myself as “it’s less than 600 feet of elevation gain. It’s not like I’m on a mountain right now. It’s casual.” #LaneyLogic

Guten Morgen und einen schönen 3.Advent euch allen!
Booked a holiday to Sri Lanka!!!!! Yewwww!!! I'd love your tips please if you have been to the southern province? Best waves, local restaurants and anything else you recommend - count down to curry feasting is on!
Meanwhile... thought I'd keep the festive dish-spiration happening for you - this one is PEACH BOCCONCINI BASIL AND TOMATO all the favourites at this time of year - how good is stone fruit season!??!?!? To make it do this:
Cut about 500g mixed cherry/heirloom tomatoes in half then toss with 150g baby bocconcini, 1 cup torn basil leaves and 1/2 cup pecans (break them up a little). Make a dressing with 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 tablespoons orange juice. Drizzle over, lightly toss, season with sea salt and black pepper and serve!
If you want to make it 100% plant based you can omit the bocconcini and go with macadamias or walnuts.
One of the questions of old regarding giraffes are, do they sleep standing up or lying down. The answer is a complicated yet simple one, very similar to that of the chicken and the egg.
Some say they sleep whilst going about their daily business...others say they dont sleep at all...others, lying down and others standing up. So which is it?
OK so its not a question of old...just me rambling on and on not knowing the non complicated answer to the question.
So here it is. Rather interresting.
Anyone who’s pulled an all-nighter(or simply stayed up a little too long past his or her bedtime on a school night)is well aware of just how much sleep we need to function well(and how even a small deficit can throw us off our game). For reasons we still don’t really understand, our brains seem to need a lot of time to reboot.
But in the wild, animals’ sleep patterns have evolved along different lines. For them, sleep comes at a steeper price(one that must have affected our distant ancestors, too): vulnerability. Even successful predators don’t sleep the way humans do—deeply, essentially undefended, and at one long stretch. Lions, the apex land predator in Africa, rest up to 20 hours a day, but there’s a reason we call short, easily-interrupted rests “cat naps”; cats are ready to spring to action much more quickly upon waking than you or I.
Giraffes, though, may be the strangest sleepers in the Serengeti. As babies, they lay down with their legs tucked beneath their bodies(lowering themselves to the ground is a serious process)and rest their heads…on their rumps. Apparently, they’re their own best pillows!
Adult giraffes occasionally sleep like this, too, but rarely for more than a few minutes at a time. In fact, they almost never sleep for longer than five minutes at astretch
throughout my life, my love of photography has transcend its necessity from just a hobby to a life longing passion. to showcase the unnoticed, the abandoned, the underdogs, the forgotten ones, is honestly one of the best things i feel like i could do. when this world is more focused on the superficial beauty of one's appearance, i wanna focus more on what known as the ugly side of the world and show that even what you call ugly, ordinary and unappealing can be beautiful as well. for me, those unappealing traits are what makes them so special. knowing that their appearance isn't their only strength they can rely on and that there's so much more of them than just appearance. what's the most appealing is their stories.
for my participation in @taintedmag contest, i'd love to win so that i'd have more media and utilities to showcase the world in a more unique perspective and make people notice that there's so much more than just what's the society shown as the definition of beauty. -with love, arthur xo

my wishes, clouded by judgements of humans. trapped me between worlds, to the world that i'm longing. a serenity, simpler than breathing.

One of Africas remarable beasts, the giraffe.
A giraffe heart can weigh approximately 11kg and this is the biggest of any land mammal. It can pump 60 litres of blood around its body every minute at a blood pressure twice that of an average human.
