Before and After pictures of my room with new curtains in morning setting. I’m not really a fan of bright mornings and I think I’m going to have a good day today. I feel pretty great so far! Yass

Day 180: The delight of seeing kids, listening to them and deciphering thoughts in the mind of a child. Perks of being a #basadour aside from inspiring and teaching children the right way to live: Reading.
This is a picture of my feet in all its glory. #fromwhereistand, I’m happy and proud!

The Last Japanese Mermaids
For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.
In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence
