I’m completely honored ♥ Thank you so much for the feature.


FINISHED. I’ve invented a ‘Daeydoim’ for The Dark Crystal competition. Basically humble cart pulling omnivores that reside on the edge of deserts. They disperse heat through their large dorsal scales and scrape vegetation off trees with their long incisors. Short fighting tusks also enable them to catch river creatures similar to fish and broad hooves make walking on sand easy. They’re commonly used within the Dark Crystal realm for long distance trade and agricultural farming.


Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

  • Teddy Roosevelt, former president with epilepsy and asthma
  • R.J. Mitte, actor with cerebral palsy
  • Miles Davis, jazz musician with sickle cell disease
  • Helen Keller, writer and social activist with hearing and visual impairment

  • Lucille Ball, actress with rheumatoid arthritis

When you use phrases like, “as long as you’re healthy” these are just a few of the people that your language is excluding.  No one owes you health.  Being healthy does not make you a good person, and being unhealthy does not make you a bad person.  The state of a person’s body does not reflect their soul, their mind, or their worth as a human being.
