The Egyptian Mau is probably the oldest breed of cat. In fact, the breed is so ancient that its name is the Egyptian word for “cat.”

#did they name it mau because thats the sound cats make!?
now I am just imagining a very early Egyptian encountering a wild cat for the first time.
human: what the fuck are you?
cat: mau
human: oh okay then

The very first pokemon.

TRAVELING ACROSS AMERICA WITH THE WILD ONES 

As strange as it may seem, I couldn’t be happier to be homeless and living out of a van with 2 of my best friends, as we travel across the country (again) to teach photography workshops. 

To give a little background, I met Joel Robison and Sarah Ann Loreth through photography just over two years ago. We all discovered each others’ work through the image sharing website, Flickr. After we all met in person 2 summers ago, things instantly clicked and we started throwing around the idea of traveling the country together. We thought to fund the trip through photography workshops along the way. The whole trip went so well, and we met so many incredible people, that we decided to do it again this summer, only bigger and better. 

Unfortunately, both times we’ve stopped at the Badlands, it was only for a single night. So to be safe, we went to the same area as last year (Conata Basic Picnic Area), since you can venture around the hills and small valleys within a stone’s throw from where you park. 

I couldn’t be happier to be working with Nature Valley to share this adventure and many others with you all to hopefully help inspire you to get out and enjoy some adventures of your own! I’m very passionate about astrophotography, so one suggestion I would make for your next trip is to stay out until the sun is gone and the stars come out. It’s like watching a whole other world come to life! 

Next up is Glacier National Park, followed by Banff National Park. Two of the most beautiful mountain ranges that you could imagine! Stay tuned!

El 21 de septiembre es el Día Mundial del Alzheimer. Se trata de una enfermedad  degenerativa de las células cerebrales –las neuronas-, de carácter progresivo y de origen hoy todavía desconocido que ya se ha diagnosticado en España a alrededor de 800.000 personas.

Inicialmente se produce pérdida de memoria, y desorientación temporal espacial.

En una segunda fase el enfermo pierde fluidez en el lenguaje, tiene dificultades para vestirse y necesita ayuda constante para realizar actividades cotidianas.

En la fase avanzada la incapacidad es profunda y no se puede valer por sí solo. Su personalidad experimenta alteraciones irreversibles, deja de hablar, no reconoce a sus allegados, así como otras complicaciones de carácter fisiológico.

Hoy quiero compartir con vosotros una carta que una persona que padece esta enfermedad escribió a su esposa Julia.

Creo que para los que no conocemos el Alzheimer de primera mano es fundamental comprender y empatizar con las personas que luchan cada día contra la tristeza de no ser reconocidos por quien han amado y aman tanto.

Léela y comprende.
