Makes we want to run

Onwards from akqa on Vimeo.

This animation by James Jarvis is excellent. If you have ever run regularly you will recognize the joy and awe in this animation. For me, it brings back memories of a long run once when it began to snow, by the time I got home I had ice on my beard and a fire in my heart. From the very first stretches the yellow man makes you can recognize its honesty and accuracy. Man, I gotta get back out there. There is music - after a moment.

Playground documentary is a must see for responsible adults- but be prepared

Libby Spears has created a documentary that sheds a light on the dark underbelly of American culture; the child sex trade. Even looking at this trailer makes me sick and sick hearted. But unlike stopping to look at a bloody car wreck, we can actually accomplish something by seeing this side of reality. Watch, then figure out what you can do to help stop this exploitation of our country's children.

One thing you can do is attend this public screening:
