Let's Have a Better Weekend

Taking a break from the London posts to wish you all a very nice weekend.  It's been a week of tragic news, thinking of the Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban because she was an activist in the cause of education for girls.   Sometimes one gets the impression that the course of human development has been thrown violently into reverse by some giant invisible hand.  

This story about Mitik, the 250 pound baby walrus being adopted by the New York Aquarium (more here from the New York Times) is cheering.

Hope it's a good one wherever you are out there.


  1. we'll try.
    happy weekend to you too.

  2. hello chère xoxo, ic il pleut tout le temps depuis trois terre est tellement contente, les arbres et les plantes aussi...c'est bien, lundi mardi mercredi soleil annoncé !
    chouette!Vive les thés chauds et les bonnes grosses soupes de verdures qui réchauffent bien le corps. Passes une bonne fin de we.

  3. Happiest of weekends to you, Paradis! :-) I'm so sad about Malala, it just guts me to see anyone abused/assaulted/murdered for trying to help others be strong. :-( I love this picture of the walrus. :-) He is adorable. :-)
