I was never American, I could never call myself American and when I did it was at the end of the word Asian. When I’d say what I was I’d say Chinese, but I’m not Chinese, am I? Born in the states, raised in the states, I’m American right? Right? But I’m not because they call me…
This is a “Family Portrait” of China’s 56 ethnic groups. Chen Haiwen, a photographer, recently lead a team of 14 photographers to create a book entitled, “Harmonious China: A Sketch of China’s 56 Ethnicities.” The team spent one year travelling all over China to complete the project. They ended up taking over 5.7 million photographs.
It’s a cute little thing though.
Sometimes it is hard to remember that owls are incredibly dangerous predators seen by cultures throughout the world as ill omens. Especially when they look like toasted marshmallows.
My boss once described them as flying pillows filled with seething hatred.
Further confirming that owls are the avian equivalent of cats.
Literal translation of the canto word for owl is “cat-head hawk”. All makes sense now…
