Each fall, millions of monarch butterflies migrate to California and Mexico for winter. North American monarchs are the only butterflies that make such a massive journey (up to 4,830 kilometers/3,000 miles). They use the sun to ensure that they stay on course and on cloudy days Earth’s magnetic field as a kind of backup navigational system. (read more here)

The great Ralph Steadman illustrates the life of Leonardo da Vinci – it hardly gets more delightful than that. (Also: Steadman’s young Leonardo looks strikingly like young Neil Gaiman.)

Dear God, I cannot love Thee the way I want to. You are the slim crescent of a moon that I see and my self is the earth’s shadow that keeps me from seeing all the moon. The crescent is very beautiful and perhaps that is all one like I am should or could see; but what I am afraid of, dear God, is that my self shadow will grow so large that it blocks the whole moon, and that I will judge myself by the shadow that is nothing.

I do not know You God because I am in the way. Please help me to push myself aside.

Flannery O’Connor, from this review of her recently released prayer journal. (via beingblog)

photo by @vincentjmusi My First Nikon, circa 1980.  I worked at Garcia’s, a small camera store in Conway, Pennsylvania.  Nikon offered an employee purchase program and the camera came engraved with your name on the bottom plate. This was not my first camera but it was the one where I grew the most as a young photographer. @thephotosociety #mylifeincameras #nikon @vincentjmusi by natgeo

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
