This was the most powerful, in my opinion, of the photographs I saw yesterday as part of the Body Language: The Yogis of India and Nepal exhibit at the Rubin Museum. I am so drawn into the eyes of the subject, but I feel as if the subject is not looking at me. Like any devout Sadhu, he is looking inward in contemplation and reflection. Which was precisely the effect that visiting this museum had on me yesterday - inspiring me to practice meditation, mindfulness, non-attachment and impermanence again. Photograph by Thomas Kelly.
I was too lazy to get out and take any photos of the Super Moon last night, a type of full moon that occurs roughly once every 20 years, but there are some great photos of it on Flickr. Photography by Several seconds
Right now the people of Japan are in crisis, their resources are stretched thin, and they need our help. Many organizations are already on the ground providing relief, including Doctors Without Borders and the Red Cross. You can provide immediate assistance by donating to help fund the emergency response:

Etosha National Park, Namibia. The world’s fastest land animal, the cheetah, is also the most endangered cat in Africa. Loss of habitat, conflict with humans, and the loss of genetic variation are the main threats facing the cheetah today. The Cheetah Conservation Fund was established to save the wild cheetah and its habitat. Like many other large animals, not just in Africa but throughout the world, humans have been a primary cause and accomplice to their plight. Therefore, I strongly feel that it is our duty and obligation to save them. Please help CCF save the cheetah, the oldest of the big cats, from extinction. Photograph by unknown.
Etosha National Park, Namibia. Lions are dying off rapidly across Africa. Conservationists estimate that unless the current rate of decline is checked, the number of lions will continue to drop significantly. And if this top predator disappears, the entire ecosystem could be in peril. We have failed as a species if we allow these majestic animals to disappear from the wild. Take action now to save them.
