“Adventure is a path. Real adventure—self-determined, self-motivated, often risky—forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind—and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” — Mark Jenkins
You can’t buy happiness but you can eat donuts. And that’s kind of the same thing. 🍩
P.S. Missing these tiny little hands now that my niece is back in Minnesota. Can’t wait until our next donut date when she comes back. #steadfastsociety
We wanted to share today’s RAK- a very special and kind-hearted 5th grade teacher who is facing some tragedy:
Right after Christmas her son in Northern California lost his home to a freak electrical fire that killed his dog. The entire family is heartbroken. She is in the process of collecting old furniture for them because their insurance process is unhelpful, lengthy, and for example giving them $80 to spend on an old shitty couch from Craigslist.
The family is living in a hotel currently that she is paying for, which as an elementary school teacher she can’t long afford. She’s VERY loved in the community.
The RAKlife team, with our amazing partnership with @grassroots.yoga.vta has pulled together to give this lovely woman $5,000 to help her family during this time in need.
Thank you if you’ve made it this far in the post and hope you all have an amazing day! :)

Do you know the difference between Body and Soul?
He roped his arm over her midriff, knitting her more with him.
I know many, but can't guess the one you are thinking about, away from this topic, she was thinking about something completely different.
The body becomes stiff when you die and the soul becomes stiff when you live, he exhaled a deep breath gushing through her neck.
She threw a blank expression at him.
Try to get out of my arms and wake up, he suggested.
She tried it, but there was a strong force stopping her. He had knitted her into him whole night after waiting for 3 months and now she did not even want to move an inch.
I can't, she confessed.
The soul stiffened?
Hmmm... She smiled and went back to sleep in the same position, counting the constant breaths gushing through her neck. With every breath, she could feel life. With every breath, she could feel her soul stiffening.
PS: This was the best I could make for you before leaving for the day after 4 failed attempts.
Now, we just have to work for our IGLOO. 🐼
The Namib Desert is the oldest desert on the planet, where a sea of red sand is blanketed by vast blue skies during the day and infinite stars at night. Desert-adapted wildlife like this oryx are just one of the many wonders to behold in mysterious Namibia...

So happy to be back in my favorite city on the planet - London! I’m here for two weeks in total and am really just enjoying the chance to hang out, see friends again, etc. I’m seeing Hamilton and Harry Potter later this week, so I’m excited to squeeze some theater into my trip too. Anything I should do while I’m here that’s new or maybe I haven’t heard of before? I’m always looking for new things to try! #RSJSinLondon
from that one time we watched the sun set from a different planet

📷@whyweseek «One of the worst things about traveling so much is that we can't have a dog. But we're still lucky enough to meet some amazing pups along the way. Like this little guy that led us all the way to the top of Bai Tho mountain recently. Safe to say he's my spirit animal.»
