no problem a tiger cuddling with an orangutan can't solve

1. I think I like inter-species friendships more than most other things. Here is a very large collection of pictures. Some of them are more "hey look two animals in the same area" than friendships, but some of them made me squeal. 
"Cora, a two-month-old baby tiger with her adoptive mother, a four-year-old dog. Cora, born in a circus, was rejected by her mother. The adoptive mother feeds the baby tiger as it were one of her puppies."
"Owner Steph Tuft, 25, takes duck Essy on a lead for a walk with her Staffordshire cross dogs Rachka and DD in Bournemouth, England. Essy, a nine-month-old Cherry Valley duck thinks she is a dog, and likes to walk with the other two pets."
""Dema, a 26-day-old endangered Sumatran Tiger cub cuddles up to 5-month-old female Orangutan, Irma at the 'Taman Safari Indonesia' Animal Hospital in West Java, Indonesia."
let it go-the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise-let it go it
was sworn to
let them go-the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers-you must let them go they
were born
to go
let all go-the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things-let all go
so comes love.

3. One of my resolutions (really I just make a list of things I want from the year and see how it goes) this year was to spend at least an hour a day doing something creative or intellectually stimulating. Without a computer. An hour might not seem like a long time, and it's not, except when all you want to do is not think or make anything. But so far it's been really good for me.

4. WHAT. Holy, holy crap. Thinking about how long this guy spent on this project makes my measly one hour a day of creativity seem pretty pathetic.
