I discovered this blog a few months and I literally fell in love with the concept. The guy who had the idea to put this together is young (22) but manage to hit the sweet spot of many of us. 
Many people are getting inspired by this original idea. Images are so strong and capture not only the light but also an engraved emotion, a story. 
Once in a while I will share with you some of the most touching stories.

From unknown basketball player to stardom in one week! this is a true story that reward patience, work and perseverance.

Lin-sanity!

ivavavoom:

Who haven’t heard of the new basketball sensation? Jeremy Lin. 

Jeremy an Asian (Taiwanese) guy in the NBA.. he used to stay on the bench all the time.. Nobody really paid attention to him, he was sleeping on the couch of his family’s friend. He is Christian and soft spoken. And I forgot he is also graduated from Havard. To make it the perfect context, he is not that tall and got turn down by a couple of teams. 

2 events in the Knicks team brought him to the light.  The 2 star players had to leave the team temporarily .. So the Knicks called him to play. Then happened what had to happen like Clark Ken, in one week he made history. 

Lin had a career night on February 4, 2012, when he scored 25 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and dished out 7 assists (against only 1 turnover) in a 99-92 Knicks victory over the Nets. The statistics for points, rebounds, and assists were all career highs for Lin. After the game, Knick coach Mike D’Antoni, while being interviewed by the MSG Network, said Lin has a point-guard mentality and “a rhyme and a reason for what he is doing out there”[78]. In the subsequent game against the Utah Jazz, Lin had 28 points and eight assists, new career highs.[79] On February 10, 2012, Lin scored a new career high 38 points and had seven assists, leading the Knicks in their victory over the Los Angeles Lakers with a score of 92–85.[80] He scored 89 points in his first three career starts, the most by any player since the merger between the American BasketballAssociation (ABA) and the NBA in 1976-77.[81]

The Great Depression in 1929..2012

Today the Economy is leading the world and brings a lot of people onto their knees. The recession is hurting a lot of families.  Some clichés seem too familiar for us to stay stoic.  History stammers. People have short memories and keep repeating their mistakes. Greed rules the world, without compassion. 

The Great Depression began with the Wall Street Crash of October, 1929 and rapidly spread worldwide. The market crash marked the beginning of a decade of high unemployment, poverty, low profits, deflation, plunging farm incomes, and lost opportunities for economic growth and personal advancement. Although its causes are still uncertain and controversial, the net effect was a sudden and general loss of confidence in the economic future.[1] The usual explanations include numerous factors, especially high consumer debt, ill-regulated markets that permitted overoptimistic loans by banks and investors, the lack of high-growth new industries,[2] all interacting to create a downward economic spiral of reduced spending, falling confidence, and lowered production.[3]

Does it sound familiar?

What do we need now a “New Deal” and a World wide War? Is this the only solution to recover?

The images are from the Great Depression… in 1929. But still very contemporary.
