Spectacular colour into this arid Utah desert by Guy Tal

"Every few years, for a few fleeting days, when conditions are just right, these otherwise arid lands burst into color with carpets of Scorpionweed and Beeplant." - Utah’s badlands"

The Badlands region in the American West is famous (or infamous) for its arid and unforgiving landscape, which is decorated by sharp and eroded spires of stone. If you catch it at just the right moment and in the right conditions, however, these apparent wastelands can give birth to an extraordinary explosion of color and life in the form of beautiful wildflowers.

An Oral History Of The Tinderverse

the-feature:

We have been told we live in “the hook-up era.” We have been warned that “the hook-up culture” will hurt us all. And yet, today’s kids were hardly the first to get into each other’s pants for non-procreative purposes. What changes over time is how we get to the moment of unzipping, and how we feel about the process along the way. Technology is always in the mix, whatever the outcome. These days, technology just seems to come and go more quickly.

The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation.
