“So you’re made of detritus [from exploded stars]. Get over it. Or better yet, celebrate it. After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?”
―Neil deGrasse Tyson

Island Kitten Befriends Animal Photographer
Animal photographer Mitsuaki Iwago was visited by a little ginger kitten when he was filming on the island of Okinawa. This little island dweller like many others are taken care of by the locals. Many cat lovers and photographers come to this island to visit their furry kitty friends.
This ginger kitten went up to the photographer and climbed on his head in the midst of the filming. Mitsuaki was happy to have a little helper on his shoulder, inspiring him as he went on with his creative production.
By the end of the day, the little island kitty fell asleep in his lap. It’s clear that he had made the photographer his new friend.
