Celestially divine embroidery by Ophelie Trichereau
Australian ambient composer Yantra De Vilder with a lost classic of the new age/environmental music genre, inspired by the Pacific ocean and Australian sea wildlife. A lovely album to put on as background music for working. It begins and sounds like a merry pirate voyage and ends on a reflective piano influenced note. It reminds me of the White Winds by Andreas Vollenweider.
I have no idea who made them but I found them Twitter and they are cutie patootie alright. Almost too cute to actually eat.

O’ speaker of my words,
we seek the wandering star.
In the twelfth night we fall
as you rise with hopeless scar.
Her world, allay, from
misunderstood passion we sought.
For I had to fight my blood off my hands
I had no fraught when I fought.
They are neither man nor woman,
to as I felt my spirit rising with my soul.
For I want,
for I have to be,
for I shall be the one whom is whole.
Who listens when I plea,
who listens when I cry,
whom is my emotion that I want to be.

Togo the Brave
In 1925, a deadly diphtheria outbreak affected the lives of 10,000 + in Nome, Alaska. With the weather to harsh to fly in the anti-toxin. Togo the Husky lead the sledge dog team that delivered the serum, traversing 674 Miles, some said he was on his last legs at age 12 years old, but he had a strong heart and persevered. He delivered the vaccines. If you are interested in Togo’s story, it was recently made into a really great movie.
