I saw his work in the National Gallery today, and I think I’ve found a new favorite painter.

My friend Olga (who is Canadian) tried to explain the milk bag system to me, and I just don’t get it. It seems so inefficient! Why would you put liquid IN A BAG? It doesn’t make senseeeeeeee.

A field grown oak that was just a sapling during the Civil War years. There  are many places in the Chesapeake landscape that are remarkably unchanged, even after centuries of intensive agriculture and in spite of the constant creep of development.

"There is a stigma in this country around women with jobs. So I want to start an organization that provides girls in the Congo with examples of women around the world who have balanced family and career. Most men in this country think it’s only about money. They think: ‘If I make enough money for us to live, then my wife should take care of the children.’ The common belief is that a woman who works is hurting her children. People don’t realize that children also gain from the knowledge and experiences of their mother."(Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

ANOTHER ANATOMY POST! Only three vertebrate groups have successfully evolved flight: Birds, Bats, and Pterosaurs, which are NOT dinosaurs, and are an extremely diverse group of reptiles! Pterodactyl is not the only one. However, birds ARE dinosaurs. Avian dinosaurs!

Wings are not some extra structure you tack on to a creature and somehow the arms go away— they ARE arms. Think about that when you are designing creatures with wings and also giving them arms. That means your creature has six limbs.

Next anatomy post: The anatomy and evolution of DRAGONS. If you guys have any requests, feel free to send them in!
