I’m attracted to the idea of drowning. Or rather the idea of jumping off and being enveloped by something, not bad or good, just enveloping. When I was a kid, I had this moment when I got under the water, lying on the pool floor, and I felt I could breathe. I’ve been trying to recreate that feeling ever since.

The hours of the Hatchard Memorial librarian were from three to five; and Charity Royall’s sense of duty usually kept her at her desk until nearly half-past four.

"Play Doesn’t End With Childhood: Why Adults Need Recess Too" via Sami Yenigun

Who said adults don’t need to play, too? Research shows that doing something engaging, voluntary and fun helps adults maintain their social well-being and reduces risks of diseases like Alzheimer’s. And as an added bonus, having some playtime makes adult life more enjoyable. So go ahead –– crack open that new book or break out some markers for doodling.

This is a real panda
China has this “panda diplomacy” and this one will be sent to Japan as an friendship envoy. For the safety reason he sits as a passenger with his feeder, not in a cage. Fastening the seat belt, wearing a diaper, eating bamboos

I would love to sit next to a panda on my next flight.
