Creating wonderful art with nature is a masterpiece for the eyes to admire. It looks so good, would you eat it?
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY:
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was the first artist in the modern era to think of the preparation and consumption of food as art. The avant-garde Futurist movement, formed by Marinetti and other artists in Milan in 1909, embraced the industrial age and all things mechanical—from automobiles and planes to manufacturing methods and city planning. They thought cooking and dining, so central to everyone’s day-to-day lives, should also be central to their farsighted, far-out ideals.
Suicide can be preventable since infancy. Having caring parents and relatives who really love their children and look out for them, creating an optimal and loving environment for their healthy and happy growth.
However, this almost seems like a utopia in the world we live in. But it is not impossible, we have to have hope, always, and have love, for ourselves, our children, our family and friends.
But, even when we have had been raised in loving homes by caring parents, in a healthy social and mental environment bad things happen to good people as we all know: a failed marriage, the death of a loved one, the loss of work or income, a traumatic accident; things that could trigger an acute depression and if not treated immediately it could develop into a severe case of suicidal depression.
When a friend, a child, a patient, anybody tells us that “I don’t want to live anymore”, or that “I am going to kill myself tonight or tomorrow”, we have the responsibility as human beings to believe him/her and help in anyway possible and as soon as possible.
“There is a critical window in which depressed patients who are suicidal need rapid relief to prevent self-harm,” said Michael Grunebaum, MD, a research psychiatrist at CUMC, who led the study.
“Currently available antidepressants can be effective in reducing suicidal thoughts in patients with depression, but they can take weeks to have an effect. Suicidal, depressed patients need treatments that are rapidly effective in reducing suicidal thoughts when they are at highest risk.
Currently, there is no such treatment for rapid relief of suicidal thoughts in depressed patients.” — Read more here
Learning to simplify your life is easy and fun. The result of doing this is more time for yourself, more peace and more laughter!
We spend so much time looking at screens instead of real people, put so much focus on building virtual friends instead of nurturing a small group of close friends in our daily life and technology has made us so fanatical about trying to keep up with a million things at once that our productivity sinks, our minds never rest and we gradually build up stress and anxiety.
Who doesn’t love petting cats, or cuddling with an adorable kitten? These felines are a gift to my heart.
ISN’T SHE CUTE?
SOME INTERESTING FACTS:
This fluffy friend of us is a small, usually furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
They have been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years, and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Owing to their close association with humans. They are now found almost everywhere in the world.
The writer David Derbyshire cites a 2007 CE research project in which, “the study used DNA samples from 979 wild and domestic kittens to piece together the feline family tree.
They looked for markers in mitochondrial DNA – a type of genetic material passed down from mothers to kittens which can reveal when wild and domestic ones lineages were most closely related.”
Coffee and flower, a wonderful combination. What’s more, I will make some interesting and beautiful quotes’ inspiration in this leisure time.
“THE POWERS OF A MAN’S MIND ARE DIRECTLY PROPORTIONED TO THE QUANTITY OF COFFEE HE DRINKS.” – SIR JAMES MACKINTOSH
Once dubbed ‘the gasoline of life’, coffee is a beverage served hot or with ice, prepared from the roasted seeds of the coffee plant, called coffee beans. Coffee is the second most commonly traded commodity in the world, second only to petroleum.
