Empathy in a photo and six words

These are images that tell a compelling story (Curated from Jan-May 2013).

A vertical forest is expected to be completed in 2013 in Milan, Italy. There are two tower apartment complexes which contain a total of 400 residential units. The facade of the buildings will be covered with 730 trees, 5,000 shrubs, and 11,000 perennial plants. It is expected to have the same ecological impact as 10,000 square meters of forest (= 0.01 sq km = 1 hectare = 1 official rugby field). This foliage fights smog, produces oxygen, and regulates temperature inside homes.

There is a longer story here about servants and greatness.

A story in a SIX WORD sentence

the six word question


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 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.

For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn.

— Ernest Hemmingway. (Written to prove that stories don’t need to be long to be evocative.)
