We arrived in the italian capital city of rome. There was an american girl travelling with us called Julie. We discoverd Julie was almost completely blind.Our trip manager jokingly said he had forgotten the way back to the hotel and did anyone know how to get there? None of us did. But then Julie piped up ‘I can do it’. We all thought she was joking too but she said ‘no, seriously, I can take us all back’. So we turned and filed behind her. She led us to the maze of winding streets. Someone asked ‘How’re you doing this? How can you possibly remember the way we came?’ - ‘I just know. Feel how beautiful and cool the air is. We’re by the fountain, that’s where we turned left. ‘I’m smelling freshly baked bread, she said. We turned right by this bakery and this is the café we passed by. I recognized the sound of that coffee machine. Trust me.’ And sure enough with every turn, the things we hadn’t focused on before revealed themselfs like hidden gems. Did we make it back to the hotel? We did, actually! Right to the front door. What struck me was, how Julie made us all see the city through her eyes. - Natalie Dormer (x)

It’s difficult to know how to react to astronaut videos and gifs being both a planetary scientist/space exploration enthusiast and a silly Youtube video connoisseur. Half of me wants to comment with something like “How amazing is it we’ve been to another world and collected samples to bring back and it was humanity’s greatest achievement and we should go again and did you know the lunar maria are lava flood basins in the sites of huge impact craters” and the other half wants to go “John Madden. John Madden. ?!?!?!?!?!?!! 99999 here comes another Chinese earthquake brbrbrbrbrbrrbbrrbrbrbrbrbrb aeiou.”
Infused in the white bead is water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. In the black bead, mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Separating the two beads are clear beads, representative of the story we all have to tell. Life moves through cycles, find your balance.
