Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

The “urban heat island” effect (where urban areas are far hotter than their surroundings) probably affects the place you live, and is only going to get worse from climate change.
Climate Central has the facts on how the heat island affects the major cities in the U.S., like New York — 20 degrees hotter than its subarbs!
***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.
I feel that the internet is somewhat of a window into the minds of people. People show more of themselves, the kind of people they really are, the things they WISH they could say, etc.
So when you look at core of the internet, where the largest amounts of people gather (reddit, 4Chan), and see all this misogyny, racism, and other horrible things. Well, it kind of drives in how deep-seated and prevalent those mentalities are in society. People say it’s just the internet, you shouldn’t take it seriously, but they forget that this is what people actually think.
A lot of people like to think that there’s a disconnect between the internet and reality, but there really isn’t. The posts and comments you see online are made by real people, and a lot of times I feel like everybody forgets about this.
That dude spouting how much he hates women exists out there, in the real world, and his beliefs and values will affect how he treats others. If this man is a teacher, it will affect the grades he gives out and the amount of help he gives to certain students. If he’s your supervisor, it could determine who gets fired, who gets promoted, and who gets employed at all.
destroy the notion that someone’s mental health is what makes them evil.
destroy the notion that mental illnesses make bad people.
destroy the notion that you can’t be an outright awful person without being mentally ill.
destroy the notion that neurotypical people can do no harm.
