Quote of the day:
Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. -Henry James

A homeless shelter -Metro Atlanta Task Force, in Atlanta, U.S, is running a rooftop garden which serves as a means to teach homeless people about urban food production and sustainable technologies. According to Carl Hartrampf, a board member, 'the idea is to produce enough to feed the residents something green and health everyday'.

A bride and groom in Turkey, Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat, who got married in a Syrian border province decided to invite over 4,000 Syrian refugees to eat with them and celebrateAnd the groom's father said he was glad that the new couple began their life together "with such a selfless action."

As seen on Arch Daily, a weekend house by architects David Jay Weiner, located in Rensselaer, NY, USA. The weekend house has the compactness and interior sparseness akin to traditional Japanese architecture, serving as a quiet retreat from busy city life.



Peace & serenity always.

  19. I am having trouble commenting, but I am going to try a third time. Sorry- if they are getting posted without my knowledge.

    The rooftop garden sounds like a great and very beneficial project. The wedding feast sounds like a lovely way to start a marriage- by being kind and generous to those around you. :)

  30. I've seen the others - but the couple that got married warmed my heart. Honestly, that was so wonderful. I hope that kindness and karma comes back to them two-fold. Beautiful people!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I LOVE this post! Love the rooftop garden to inspire and hopefully help feed the homeless. ADORE the couple who thought of the refugees when celebrating their wedding - an auspicious way to begin their life together. And I would so love to live in that little house of glass.........I am very intrigued by the Tiny House movement (your glass house is large in comparison), and its possibilities as an escape from huge mortgages, excess and being house-poor. Also it might potentially house some of we low income folk......we live in hope.......

  32. Glad to see you stop by. I was getting your posts by email and then they stopped coming. Google/blogger has done this to me with several blogs. No idea why. This is such a wonderful post, as all of yours have been that I have read. You lift people up! Have a great weekend. :)

  50. I like the garden and wedding ideas... the house is nice BUT I don't think I'd want that much glass around me (and it would be hard to heat in Upstate NY)
