Miles from the main roads, in rural Africa, soccer balls bounce unevenly. Playing fields are arid, lush, weedy, sandy — any flattish space will do. Goalposts might be made of gathered mahogany or driftwood. Some feet are bare, others shod in fraying sneakers, boots, rubber sandals. Yet children kick and chase handmade, lopsided balls with skill and abandon, competing for pride and joy — for the sheer pleasure of playing.
Has the “beautiful game” ever been lovelier?

What the fuck textbooks
You’re made of paper and ink
Not fucking diamonds.
CG4, a cometary globule in Puppis
CG4 (also known as The Hand of God) is a cometary globule that lies about 1,300 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Puppis (the Stern). Its “head” is some 1.5 light-years across, and its “tail” is about eight light-years long. This dusty, star-forming region contains enough gas and dust to form several stars about the size of the Sun.

True love does not depend on physical expression. You should realize this. True love is a feeling deep within you. It is not just a matter of wearing a smile on your face and looking happy. Rather, it arises from a heartfelt understanding of every other being’s suffering and radiates out to all of them indiscriminately. It does not favor a chosen few to the exclusion of everyone else. This is true love.
