From the talented and constantly practicing @jppacificoriginals
Was listening to a debate on the radio today about immigration and the increase in children making the dangerous trek alone from Central America to the US. Legalities aside, the stories of these kids’ experiences to make it here and the reasons why they had to leave their home were extraordinary… Regardless of our country’s policies, this is what comes to mind for me. At some point in each of our own histories, we or our families before us came to this country looking for a better life…

Energy Density means calories divided by grams/weight. The low energy density foods are also high nutrient dense foods.
This is so important to remember, especially when people say you can’t be healthy and lose weight without being hungry all the time.
This is so good
Creating and Capturing Paper Abstracts with @ninoisy
For more photos and videos of Karuna’s artwork, follow @ninoisy on Instagram.
For Thailand graphic designer Karuna Khettanurak (@ninoisy), patterns are at the core of her creativity. When she began to experiment with transforming paper into various designs and posting them to her Instagram account, she received suggestions from her followers for further exploration. “My Instagram friends recommended ideas to me from other artists who made interesting creations from paper, and I did find a lot of them after doing some research,” says Karuna. Since then, the works of these artists have become some of her inspiration in what she calls her “abstracts.”
Karuna says that paper and photography are “like two worlds colliding.” She folds, stacks, cuts, sculpts, curls and weaves her papers, then captures them in different angles to create unique designs. Karuna often shoots in a room with low lighting and either places her paper abstracts on a light box or by a window to get natural light. Reflecting on her fascination with capturing paper, she says, “It’s so close to us but we overlook its value. I was so surprised to find the art hidden inside.”
The bottom 70%?! Thats significant.
