I agree wholeheartedly with this talk. We don’t grow into creativity, we are educated out of it. I don’t think that every person will ultimately be a creative genius, but I do believe that everybody has potential and should be encouraged to explore those options. Our potential for original thought is squashed so early on. I think it really hit me when I was in 6th grade or so.
“A tradition in the cafés of Naples is to order a caffè sospeso – literally, a coffee “in suspense” – as a sign of your good fortune. When a sospeso is ordered, the customer pays for two coffees, but only receives one. That way, when a person who is homeless or otherwise down on their luck walks into the café, the person can ask if there are any coffees held in suspense, and can have one as a courtesy of the first customer. Though the custom has been a part of Neapolitan society for many years, it is somewhat less common today.”—(via hannahkayye)
These children are the relatives of a friend of my friend Magdalena. They were abducted from St. Paul, MN on February 6 and were last seen in rural Missouri, around the Ozarks. Have you seen these children? Please reblog!
