Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
--Jorge Luis Borges, translation by Veronica A. Shoffstall (via nonelikejesus)
All That Jazz
Umi no Mieru Machi / 海の見える街
This is such a fun and happy song! :D
Shall somehow be able to play some jazz music on my own on the piano ONE DAY!
Need to train those fingers to run first… yes
(till then, this shall be my ringtone!)
In your patience possess ye your souls
“In your patience possess ye your souls”
- Luke 21:19
When a man is born again, there is not the same robustness in his thinking or reasoning for a time as formerly. We have to make an expression of the new life, to form the mind of Christ. “Acquire your soul with patience.” Many of us prefer to stay at the threshold of the Christian life instead of going on to construct a soul in accordance with the new life God has put within. We fail because we are ignorant of the way we are made, we put things down to the devil instead of our own undisciplined natures. Think what we can be when we are roused!
There are certain things we must not pray about – moods, for instance. Moods never go by praying, moods go by kicking. A mood nearly always has its seat in the physical condition, not in the moral. It is a continual effort not to listen to the moods which arise from a physical condition, never submit to them for a second. We have to take ourselves by the scruff of the neck and shake ourselves, and we will find that we can do what we said we could not. The curse with most of us is that we won’t. The Christian life is one of incarnate spiritual pluck.
- Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
Artist Erik Johansson and Adobe pranked unsuspecting people waiting for busses, by photographing them from afar and Photoshopping into ads at the very same bus stop they were waiting at!
Watch how surprised they are when they see themselves pop up on the screen!
In an effort to make his daughter’s first baby album a bit more interesting than the rest, Swedish photographer Emil Nystrom used his skills in Photoshop to come up with some hilarious and memorable scenes.
Love this :)

A Trip to Salvation Mountain
Browse more photos on the Salvation Mountain location page.
If you ever visit Niland, California, a desert town of just over 1,000 people in the southeasternmost corner of the state, you’re sure to find Salvation Mountain. The giant, bright relgious tribute is made of over 100,000 gallons of paint and stands 50 feet tall by 150 feet in breadth. Artist Leonard Knight started building the mountain in the 1980s and lived there for 30 years, passing days adding to and caring for his life’s work.
Since Knight, now 82, entered into a long-term care facility in late 2011, concern has been raised for the future of the site. Without constant upkeep, the harsh environment can quickly erode the fragile mountain made of clay and paint. Learn more about the fight to save Salvation Mountain here.
I want to go to this place!
