We look before and after,
And pine for what is not;
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell
Of saddest thought.”
— Percy Bysshe Shelley (via man-of-prose)
Pablo Neruda is one of my favorite modern poets, and despite him being Chilean, when I read his poetry in Spanish, I dream of my soul’s resting place - a remote puebla in Mexico that I’ve been known to run to from time to time in order to swim with the sea lions and remember what’s really important. Living.
At a march to reform education in Bogota. Came up on my facebook feed, but I don’t read spanish so well - here’s the photo credit from the description: El Tiempo, Juan Manuel Vargas

DEEP SPACE SATURNINE This silhouette of Saturn was taken by the Cassini spacecraft on Feb. 13, 2010. Although the sun is eclipsed by Saturn in this dramatic image, some sunlight scatters through the uppermost part of the atmosphere to reach Cassini’s cameras. This view looks toward the northern, sunlit side of the rings from just above the ringplane. (Photo: NASA / JPL)
