Some pleasure reading but mostly reference books. 
Including: ‘The Monkey Wrench Gang’ by Edward Abbey, ‘Fahrenheit 451’ by Ray Bradbury, ‘Ok, so now you are a vegetarian’ (recipes) by Lauren Butt, ‘Make Good Art Make Fantastic Mistakes’ speech by Neil Gaiman, ‘Canone Inverso’ by Paolo Maurensig

And a freshly harvested pineapple because they’re delicious and have fibonacci numbered spirals (this one has 8).

Never have I been so glad to be a vegetarian.

“I have come to realize that the mind of a constant wanderer is different from the mind of the firmly grounded. Different things fulfil us and fill our dreams. We selfishly value experiences higher than people. We need solitude and independence at times, but companionship and love at others, switching from one to the other in a way that is cruel to those on the outside. Know that if you leave, you are forever changing your future. And when you return, some may still love you, but others will hate you for it.”

Iranian photographer Hossein Fatemi, offers a glimpse of an entirely different side to Iran than the image usually broadcasted by domestic and foreign media. In his photo series An Iranian Journey, many of the photographs reveal an Iran that most people never see, presenting an eye-opening look at the amazing diversity and contrasts that exist in the country.

A side often unseen by non-natives

"…If you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.
The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It’s been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

Drowsy street blanketed under thick fog. Amber darkness drooped. Go to sleep, go to sleep. This moment, I feel alive. Conscious of my existence, more than ever.

The idea that we are all made with the same stuff that stars are is beyond my comprehension.
