sometimes you come face to face with the reality that effort means nothing without recognition or memory. the stab of realization.
women have been again and again inhabiting space that is absence. the missing voice. the blank in the ledger. the faceless subject. the unnamed genealogy.
so i am trying to remember the unremembered. some days i try to be remembered.
it seems a futile task. but i try anyway.
In recent years, biologists have recognized that birds engage in play. Juvenile Common Ravens are among the most playful of bird species. They have been observed to slide down snowbanks, apparently purely for fun. They even engage in games with other species, such as playing catch-me-if-you-can with wolves, otters and dogs. Common Ravens are known for spectacular aerobatic displays, such as flying in loops or interlocking talons with each other in flight.
They are also one of only a few wild animals who make their own toys. They have been observed breaking off twigs to play with socially.
Just glancing at the epic aerial shots above, you’d think they were captured by a professional photographer.
In fact, these amazing photos were taken by Wei Gensheng, a crane operator currently working in Shanghai.

Especially orchids, since their petals have adapted specifically for wasps and bees to copulate with in order to pollinate.
excuse me what did you say about my daughters Wasp Dong and Tiny Vibratoria
