Happy Monday!

What’s a march without a little laughter?

Penguins are not the biggest, most feared or most dominating animal on the planet, but they are uniquely majestic and adorable. Ever since elementary school, when I did a class project on the flightless birds, I was hooked. There is a special magnetism to this creature, shared by few other animals. Part of this attraction could be that a penguin is the style equivalent of Jay Gatsby in the animal kingdom.

“Impeccable tux, Old Sport.”

Starting the workweek is not the easiest task for anybody, but a cute penguin just might be what the doctor ordered.

(FYI – There’s no limit to the number of times you can watch the following video)

Penguins FTW (For The Win).

Have an Awesome Week!

The Imagination Whisperer

A picture is not only worth a thousand words, but now it can inspire millions of people of all ages.

Exhibit A: Robin van Persie’s diving header against Spain in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil was the best goal of the tournament. Surprisingly, this moment nearly/does rise to the same level as the imagery of the Germans triumphantly lifting the World Cup trophy. That’s powerful. When that goal is replayed on television, it instantly encapsulates the top-level talent of the players and teams in that glorious tournament last summer.

This goal was the sports highlight of 2014.

Exhibit B: The highly-anticipated Jurassic World was expected to be a summer blockbuster, reinvigorating the franchise that started with the 1993 cinematic masterpiece Jurassic Park. The 2015 film will be remembered for many things, including its dinosaur-sized, record-breaking box office domination. Or how about how John Williams was welcomed back into our hearts, as well as to the top of the Billboard charts after 22 years. Jurassic World was the sequel everyone had been waiting for since watching the helicopter safely fly into the sunset over the oceanic horizon in June of 1993.

Enter Chris Pratt/Owen Grady.

As seen in the film and the trailers, Owen’s prowess for cautiously wrangling velociraptors is a spectacular sight of a person trying to control nature. There are several memorable scenes from the movie, but none like the raptor whisperer. However, the photograph after the screenshot is not directly from the film, but is instead of a child’s interpretation of the aforementioned scene with some parental coordination. And this pose has been done by many, however, this adaption showcases the dinosaur-loving kid in all of us.

This is the pose of 2015.

The image gets your attention, like a certain cup of trembling water…

Happy Monday!

The world can always, always use more penguins:

I love penguins and this is unequivocally one of the reasons why. Hopefully this starts your week off the right way!
