Located on an isolated stretch of road outside of the tiny town of Calhoun, Tennessee is a gorgeous church which is hidden by the surrounding forest. This place of worship was once known as Shelton Memorial Church. It is a quiet place and the only sounds we could hear was the distant splashing of the water from the nearby Hiwassee River and the rustle of leaves in the breeze.

Abstract Maps

Toronto-based artistJazzberry Blue created this series of abstract maps portraying the world’s most famous cities: Los Angeles, London, Milan, and more. The self-taught traveling artist uses a combination of bold color palettes and geometric figures to give each map an abstract flare of its own.
From the organized city blocks of New York, to the chaotic streets of London, every print perfectly captures the essence each city.

That comic strip highlights a normal way of thinking for me.

"We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly except crammed in a noisy tube like sardines, which doesn’t count. Humans compared to animals are almost totally deaf, and we can’t smell a fart in an elevator by their standards. We are finite and separate, and neurotic, while the consciousness of an animal is at peace and eternal. We strive and go crazy to become more important. Animals rest and sleep and enjoy the company of each other. We think we have evolved upwards from animals but we have lost almost all of their qualities and abilities. The idea that animals don’t have consciousness or that they don’t have a soul is rather crass. It shows a lack of consciousness. They talk, they have families, they feel things, they act individually or together to solve problems, they often care of their young as a tribal unit. They play, they travel, and medicate themselves when they get sick. They cry when others in the herd die, they know about us humans. Of course they have a soul, a very pristine one. We humans are only now attempting with the recent rise in consciousness to achieve the soul that animals have naturally."

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth."
