DESERT FLORA - ARIZONA
The popular conception of Arizona is of a barren desert country, yet the flora ranges from the subtropical to the subalpine. Strange and unusual plant types are found from mountain peak to desert floor. … Even were it not for the myriad growth of flowers, the word “desert” as applied to Arizona would be misleading, for there are always green shrubs and cacti to add color and variety tot he landscape. Arizona leads in the number and diversity of cactus plants, and while most of them grow on the desert, some are found high on the mountains, surviving low temperatures.
—Arizona, A State Guide (WPA, 1940)
Arizona is far from a barren land of rock and sand. Russell Gossett sent in this beautiful view of the landscape for American Guide Week.

If someone ever tells you a certain song is important to them you should turn it up and lay on your bed and close your eyes and really listen to it even if its 10 minutes long because at the end you will know that person much better I think
My love for this post is unbelievable.
so for my art project we had to fake a death/murder. for mine I did someone who had jumped off a building. when I was laying down while the picture was being taken, 7 people came running up to me asking if I was okay and if I needed an ambulance etc. I’ve been suicidal for a very long time, and the thoughts of jumping off buildings and ending my life have gone through my mind a thousand times. But the fact that people actually stopped and came running over to see if I was alright made me see that people do care, strangers care. so many people looked and walked past, but these 7 people some how took these suicidal feelings away… weird huh? But the moral of this story is that people do care about you, even people who don’t know who you are.
Signal boosting this shit
When I was a little kid I used to want to be white so I could go on adventures because I believed only white kids could go on adventures. That’s what media taught me anyways.
GUYS NO LOOK WHAT I FOUND DID EVERYONE ELSE KNOW ABOUT THIS ALREADY OR WHAT OMFG I CANT BREATHE
Hookfire in OUAT 3x10
I need to talk about something that I think is being overshadowed by the, winning Emma’s heart, part of their storyline this season.
HOOK CARES ABOUT NEAL/BAE.
He loved Milah and he loves her son and he wanted them to be a family. And when he chose to come back after almost sailing off with the bean it was what he did to Bae that reminded him he made the wrong choice back then in choosing revenge over being hurt rather than just letting Bae go. And when he decided to come back and help he found out that Bae’s son was the one in danger now and he offered to help right away. I think this was his way of trying to make it right. To atone for what he did to Bae in whatever way he could now that he didn’t have the chance to do it personally, thinking he was dead.
"For the sake of the boy…"
He was talking about Henry, but again it was because he knows that Bae blames him for tearing apart his family and it was that pain that caused Bae to hurt Hook’s feelings and therefore Hook to betray him. He doesn’t want a similar fate for Henry but also he wants to give Bae his shot. He doesn’t want to tear apart his family again by taking from him, another woman he loves, like he did when him and Milah ran away together. He wants Bae to have a chance at being happy too. He wants to do that for him, it’s his atonement. Even though he knows that he will have Emma’s heart in the end he still wants Bae to at least have a fair shot at trying to have his happy family.
(MAN OF HONOR)
That’s why I love the look Hook has after he tells Neal he’s not so sure Emma’s gonna let him back in. He’s trying to give him his shot and do what he thinks is right for Neal but you can see the sympathy on his face for him. Because he knows. He may be a little worried for himself and if Emma chooses Neal but I believe he’s thinking more about how Bae is going to feel when he is NOT the one that Emma wants.
I love the way the camera focused on Hook watching Neal and Henry instead of the hug itself. It was showing you that Hook does care for both these boys. He wants Bae to have his son and he wants Henry to have his father. He wants them to be a family, whether he knows how he fits into it or not.
