A lie is still a lie, even when it’s white!

 

I say I’m 10 when I’m 9 and half.
My Uncle Tells a joke and I try to laugh
In gym I fake a headache, but I want to quit
I say I love the sweater that my Grandma knit.

But that was…

Chorus 1:

A white lie
(Sing as echo in „Lie To Me” epsisode the children sing this part) White Lie
That’s a white lie
(Sing as echo) white lie
That’s the kind you want to tell
(Children sing too) A white lie
So your mom won’t have to yell
A white lie
(sing echo) White Lie
Everybody does it cause it feels alright and it’s more polite
But a lies still a lie, even when it’s white

I pretend I’m asleep when my dad walk’s in
I said I ate my chicken, but I just ate the skin
You speak and say your lie and when your mouth says not
Your pants are on fire, but their not too hot

When it’s a…

Chorus 2

White Lie
(sing echo) White Lie
It’s the kind you want to tell
A white lie
So your dad won’t have to yell
A white lie
(sing echo) white lie
Everybody does it, cause it feels alright and it’s more polite
but a lie’s still a lie, even when it’s white

While it might be hard, to say what’s true,
would you want a white lie told to you?

The child in us. Traveling from Zhangmu (Nepal-Tibet border) to the Tibetan capital – Lhasa you can see road workers all along the Friendship Highway. The Chinese industrialization has affected Tibet a great deal. But despite the Chinese government’s attempts to settle Chinese population across the Tibetan Plateau, the Roof of the World still remains a place where only the Tibetans can survive its harsh climate conditions.

After the Crash. My dear friend, Laura, fell from the sky. The helicopter she was traveling in crashed into an open, dry field and burst info flames, killing three of the six passengers on board, including the pilot. Laura survived, but barely. She was burned, crushed, and near death. She broke 45 bones. She was pulled from the burning wreckage by her hair. To this day, she still cannot walk. While there wasn’t a part of her body that was unharmed, her spirit and determination to live a full, happy life remains stronger than ever. This image taken in a lush, green field is meant to signify her rebirth. (Photo and caption by Judy Starkman)

Ki Gompa. This picture was taken when I visited the Buddhist Monastery of Ki. Ki is a tiny village in the middle of the Himalayas, and next to it is Ki Gompa (Ki Monastery). I lived with the monks for about a week, and this picture reflects the peaceful, almost heavenly atmosphere that characterizes this place. The Monastery is almost 4,000 meters high, and I had to climb almost 500 meters more to get this panorama. This place is a touch of heaven. (Photo and caption by Natalia Luzuriaga)

Lightning Strike NY Harbor. This shot was captured during a major electrical storm. There was little wind and no rain which allowed me to stay safely inside and shoot from an open window. This was the 82nd exposure out of 150 made that night. The camera was mounted on a tripod, exposures made with a cable release for 5 seconds at f10. Except for a some minor level adjustments and a square crop this was what came out of the camera. (Photo and caption by Jay Fine)

Suradita Village, West Java, Indonesia. Children playing with their roosters. Actually it was not a real cockfight because the roosters didn’t wear blades on their feet. Children like to play this game because they almost never have toys in their life. (Photo and caption by Ario Wibisono)

Great Blue Heron with fish. The largest and most widespread heron in North America. When foraging, they stand silently along riverbanks, lake shores, or in wet meadows, waiting for prey to come by, which they then strike with their bills. (Photo and caption by Linh Dinh)

Kanana Camp, Botswana. Pulling over by the side of the road to watch a grazing giraffe, we spotted an amber head lurking behind a small mound. A hungry lioness. Watching, waiting, camera to my eye, she eventually chose her moment and pounced just as the giraffe sensed danger. The lioness gave chase, but failed. Hungry, she lay down, invisible, in the grass not ten feet from us and waited again. (Photo and caption by Alex Tan)

În case vecine, locuiau două familii.
În prima casă, domnea liniștea și pacea, pe când, cea de-a doua era plină de certuri.
Odată, soții celei de-a doua familii hotărâră să-i urmărească, pe ascuns, pe vecinii lor, ca să înțeleagă de ce, acolo, întotdeauna, e pace și voie bună.
Dimineața, bărbatul se ascunse sub fereastra vecinilor săi. Privi înăuntru și văzu că femeia spală podeaua. Peste un minut, ea își aminti ceva și fugi repede spre bucătărie. Între timp, soțul ei intră înăuntru, în grabă, și răsturnă găleata cu apă. Când femeia se întoarse din bucătărie, soțul îi spuse:
– Iartă-mă! Mă grăbeam și nu am observat găleata.
– Nu, e vina mea! spuse soția. Am lăsat găleata chiar lângă ușă…
Bărbatul de la fereastră văzu această scenă și se întoarse acasă.
– Am înțeles diferența dintre ei și noi, îi spuse el soției.
– Și care e diferența?
– La…

– Gata! spuse discipolul. De mâine, mă voi schimba! Voi fi mai atent, mai harnic, voi face mai mult sport, voi citi mai mult, voi face mult mai puține greșeli… Începând de mâine, voi fi alt om.
– Nu te vei schimba, spuse învățătorul, continuând, liniștit, să-și bea ceaiul.
– De ce credeți așa? Veți vedea, de mâine, voi fi altcineva.
– Dacă ți-ai fi dorit să te schimbi cu adevărat, te-ai fi schimbat chiar în această clipă…

Învățătorul îi spuse discipolului o pildă:
– Stejarului îi plăcea să se laude în fața ierbii: ”Eu sunt cel mai puternic din această poiană. Pe tine te calcă toată lumea în picioare, pe când eu sunt atât de viguros și de tare încât nimeni nu-mi poate face niciun rău”. Iarba îl asculta în tăcere. Într-o zi, o furtună puternică se abătu asupra lor. Iarba, cu ușurință, se apleca sub vânt și furtuna nu reuși să-i smulgă nici măcar un fir. În schimb, stejarul pierdu o mulțime de crengi și se despică până la jumătate… Deci, ține minte, flexibilitatea este mai importantă decât tăria.
– Am înțeles, învățătorul meu.
– Acum, ascultă continuarea! Iarba i se lăuda stejarului: ”Eu sunt cea mai puternică. Pe tine, furtuna aproape că te-a distrus, pe când mie nu a putut să-mi facă absolut nimic. Flexibilitatea mă face mai puternică decât tine”. Stejarul o asculta în…

Go into yourself

“Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.

This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple “I must,” then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse. Then come close to Nature. Then, as if no one had ever tried before, try to say what you see and feel and love and lose…

…Describe your sorrows and desires, the thoughts that pass through your mind and your belief in some kind of beauty – describe all these with heartfelt, silent, humble sincerity and, when you express yourself, use the Things around you, the images from your dreams, and the objects that you remember. If your everyday life seems poor, don’t blame it; blame yourself; admit to yourself that you are not enough of a poet to call forth its riches; because for the creator there is not poverty and no poor, indifferent place. And even if you found yourself in some prison, whose walls let in none of the world’s sounds – wouldn’t you still have your childhood, that jewel beyond all price, that treasure house of memories? Turn your attentions to it. Try to raise up the sunken feelings of this enormous past; your personality will grow stronger, your solitude will expand and become a place where you can live in the twilight, where the noise of other people passes by, far in the distance. – And if out of this turning-within, out of this immersion in your own world, poems come, then you will not think of asking anyone whether they are good or not. Nor will you try to interest magazines in these works: for you will see them as your dear natural possession, a piece of your life, a voice from it. A work of art is good if it has arisen out of necessity. That is the only way one can judge it.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Best friends

 Born in Africa to French wildlife photographer parents, Tippi Degré had a most unusual childhood. The young girl grew up in the African desert and developed an uncommon bond with many untamed animals including a 28-year old African elephant named Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, lion cubs, giraffes, an Ostrich, a mongoose, crocodiles, a baby zebra, a cheetah, giant bullfrogs, and even a snake. Africa was her home for many years and Tippi became friends with the ferocious animals and tribespeople of Namibia. As a young child, the French girl said, “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends.”

Photo of Officer Giving Boots to Barefoot Man Warms Hearts

  On a cold November night in Times Square, Officer Lawrence DePrimo was working a counterterrorism post when he encountered an older, barefooted homeless man. The officer disappeared for a moment, then returned with a new pair of boots, and knelt to help the man put them on.

The act of kindness would have gone unnoticed and mostly forgotten, had it not been for a tourist from Arizona.
