Only ten years old, never to see eleven. Last week, Joanna Ramos from Long Beach, California, had an appointment with Death. He was not dressed in black, Death, nor carrying a scythe. No, Death was dressed as a girl. A girl, the same age as Joanna.
They were rivals, these youngsters, fancying one and the same boy. And they decided to fight over him. Within one minute it was over. The fight. And Joanna’s life. A blood clot blocked her future.
Clouds were dominant today. They blocked the sunlight and suppressed any thoughts of spring. But the clouds will not fool me, noooooo. Because I have proof that the sun is getting stronger. Remember, last Saturday, when we went for a beer walk?

“The Muses in Greek mythology, poetry, and literature, are the goddesses who inspire the creation of literature, science and the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge, related orally for centuries in the ancient culture, that was contained in poetic lyrics and myths.”
This post is a reblog from Anake Goodall about the Living Bridges of Meghalaya, India. The message was so inspiring and awesome, I just had to share it. Please read the post straight from Anake Goodall’s blog.
For the ones who don’t want leave the safe environment of Figments ;), you can also watch the BBC film (five minutes) here. And admire a photo of the living bridges. And with ‘living’, I really mean living! I urge you to hit the ‘play’ button, for you will be thrilled. The people of Meghalaya are working WITH nature, not against it, finding ingenious natural solutions. I am in awe.
In search of the origins of the photo I used for this post, I came upon Malini Rajesh’ blog. There you will find more intriguing information on these bridges!
