Forcing yourself to work on something that you have no real motivation for
look at this

Winterly Creek in Dusk, Ludwig Munthe. Norwegian (1841 - 1896)

Be Kind to Moth
A short comic based on this post that’s been going around.
Please be kind to our tiny friends? Moths are really harmless, and despite the fact that people freak out over them eating holes in your clothes? Only very few species do that, and it’s not even the adults. It’s their little babus who you’ll see munching away XD. Moths are harmless in pretty much every way shape and form, and things like candles and bright lights confuse their internal navigation systems. A moth in your home flying towards a light is literally terrified and confused. So be nice the the little cutie and just bring it ouside? :)
moths pollinate at night and are also food for our ever-valuable and vulnerable friends the bats!
Be nice to moths.
Pugception [marksingletree]I only reblogged this because of the real dogs face…
Mikhail Khodorkovsky appeals to Russians: We can stop the war, it’s enough to take it to the streets!
We are at war with Ukraine. For real. Sending there the soldiers and equipment. Ukrainians fight well, but retreating. Forces, of course, are not equal.
Our government is constantly lying about it. As they were lying in the 80s about Afghanistan. In the 90s - about Chechnya. Today - about Ukraine. And we bury our colleagues, friends and relatives, who are now on both sides, who are killing each other, not because they want to, but because of of aging rulers who always need blood.
We all know that. Therefore, the government lies.
And why we pretend to believe them? Chickened ?! Are we even afraid to think? Losing our children, doesn’t scare you?! Shooting at our brothers? How will we live with that?
And you know - we could and still can stop it. Simply go out, it’s enough to take it to the streets, threaten to strike. The rulers will immediately retreat, they are so cowardly. Will we keep pretending that we believe? And keep crying at the funerals.
So, I do not want to remain silent and will not.
I always respect this Russian…. It is sad, that people in Russia do not hear him
