THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS 

In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.

Lake View Cemetery: The Haserot Angel 

It’s called the Angel of Death Victorious. Due to an effect of weathering and erosion on the bronze, the statue appears to be weeping black tears at all times.

"Concerning The Locomotive"

A lengthy history and future I be,
and hurry a great deal I do,
At times helping some to flee,
Turning curious heads as I go.

For My joints do turn and churn,
certainly drawing much praise
as my fierce fuel burns,
rushing past the soft sheep a’graze.

For your life’s best interest,
please do step away from my path!

As I’ve caused many gentle tears,
some of sorrow, others of joy,
and plenty of fears of my rough gears,
yet I be of the valiant dreams of boys.

And they say farewell,
and Godspeed.
These sentiments I find most telling,
as I move them through their lives.

And as many booted feet have trodden me,
these old parts still hold steady, I daresay!

For you see, my paths allow no wander
Aside from the hearts of my riders,
of which I find most fonder
than these stubborn metal guides.

My lady, where shall I carry you tonight,
protected through this gentle drizzle?
Pray, with not a gun fight in sight,
I will return you home, candles alight.

Knowing he was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realise or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion. As reported by “Weekly World News”, a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped moving and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull was in tears.  Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, “When I saw this kind of so-called “stupid” animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling. I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn’t want to move and sat there crying.” Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, “People thought animals didn’t cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby.” At the time, 10 men were present and all were touched. Even those responsible for the slaughter were in tears. Others working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals. With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life. After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said, “When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us.” Mr. Shiu said “Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable.” No doubt, this bull changed these butchers’ lives. Hopefully this story has, in turn, changed yours.


Oh my god I cant

For Ibrahim, life was bleak.

Bedbound and paralyzed as the result of a car accident over half a year ago, he had not had a visitor from his family in months and was in desperate need of life-changing surgery that the Saudi Arabian could not afford.

Alone and isolated, there was not too much joy in Ibrahim’s life.

That was until he posted a tweet aimed at encouraging one of the few followers he had to come and visit as he lay paralysed in his bed.

With his tweet he hoped that at least one sympathetic person might hear his call and provide some much craved company for him.

What he did not expect was the social media storm that it would create.

Within one day Ibrahim’s tweet became the most retweeted message in Saudi Arabia’s Twitter history.

The hashtag #VisitIbrahim circulated through social media circles and within just 24 hours it had been retweeted over 200,000 times.

Not only that, but Ibrahim got a lot more than he bargained for when hundreds of people from all over Saudi Arabia came to visit him.

Clutching flowers, pizza and other gifts there were cues of hundreds of people outside the King Khalid University Hospital in the country’s capital Riyadh, all with the aim of meeting Saudi’s latest social media star.

The hospital became so busy that its officials had to put a temporary ban on all of its visitors as the number of people in the building was affecting the work of its staff.

Yet Ibrahim did not only benefit from the tweet in terms of footfall and flowers, so compelled were the Saudi Twitter community by Ibrahim’s story that they contributed financially towards the life-changing surgery Ibrahim dreamed of.

The surgery which would cost $130,000 and involve Ibrahim travelling to Germany was quickly covered by the generous donors from the oil rich middle-eastern country.

Pictures showing visitors posing, talking to and even feeding the paralyzed man were posted on Twitter.

It is now hoped a trip to Germany can be organised soon so that that Ibrahim can get the surgery he is so in need of.
