You’re worried about getting things successfully done in order to attain some degree of self-worth. Your soul is for sale; You most likely deceive yourself in order to convince yourself. Letting go equals failing, isn’t that right? And you forget outstandingly well, don’t you? You forget that It takes admirable courage not only to try but also to gracefully give up.

—Albert Camus, Notebooks, 1951-1959 (via angielovesindie)

Sorry Vegetarians: Plants Know When They're Being Eaten, Too

heteroglossia:

"Food" for thought: I see this as an obvious reason to discuss the anthropocentric privileging that goes into refraining from eating one form of life and not another. As it stands, vegetarianism is most often founded on the refusal to eat animals that remind us the most of ourselves. Ultimately, no matter what we eat, we are consuming life, living off an-"other" thing (or being’s) energy. To exist is to take the energy from another — to take life. This is very, very problematic and, as hyperbolic as it sounds, we might consider that the only way to truly refrain from causing harm, or pain, is to cease "being" (and consuming) altogether: an inconvenient perspective that would completely reframe the discourse on suicide, traditionally seen as immoral, as perhaps the only moral choice.

Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, AustriaIn the winter you’ll find crisp, tranquil grasslands and lake that is only about 3 to 6 feet deep.  However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 40 feet from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.
