These are images that tell a compelling story (Curated from Jan-May 2013).
Everyone needs love and companionship
The loneliest whale in the world – the Hellen Keller of whales – is on a different wavelength from all her species.
But elsewhere in the universe, whales are a welcoming congregation when they have empathy and can hear the cries.
This girl is very much like the whale, only she is surrounded by people every day. But do they notice her? This image also illustrates the power of physical space on our psychological being.
There is a longer story here about servants and greatness.
A story in a SIX WORD sentence
For some reason, this one reminds me of my 16 year old niece. Here are many SIX WORD stories that could go with the picture:
I’m weird just deal with it
Yeah I’m that kind of girl
The odds are not “in my favor”
I’m in my own little world
Can you tell that I’m bluffing?
I don’t want to fit in
I eat soup with a fork
The sky is not the limit
But I struggle to come up with a six word sentence for what this girl is thinking.
