If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.

(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

Yeah!  This reality hit me a few months ago when a teenage boy at work said to another teenage boy, “ladies first!” in order to insult him.  Chivalry is not about respect or kindness.

the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

The Art of Juan Cabana 

This post was recommended to me by a follower of mine!

All of it really is intriguing

In 2001, he came across a tiny, Japanese mermaid constructed from wood and paper — reminiscent of the Fiji mermaids, created thousands of years ago in Japan and China.

He was inspired by that to make his new creations. 

He enjoys the art but he strongly believes that mermaids could have been real at one time. 

He won’t reveal his techniques, explaining only that he typically starts with a human skeleton replica or animal and fish bones, and molds the mermaid with whatever parts and skins he gets from the market.

Occasionally he’ll use baboon skin and parts, as they come with small humanlike hands and miniature skulls. A vendor in Africa sells him the parts, he says.

You can visit his official site here

He has sold some of pieces for $10,000
