A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS
So a couple of days ago, I'm reading the rumors that Google+ might be changing, might be dying, might be as good as gone, and I start crying. Full on waterworks. 😭

SOMEONE TO LEAN ON
I start thinking of all the memories. The life-changing, career-kickstarting, breakthrough moments that have defined my life, that all happened here. I hear that it happens, the "digital winds". But I just can't believe they might blow my virtual home away. So, I reached across the continents – using that Hangouts that have been my window to the world – and +Moritz Tolxdorff answered. Coder-and-fan-turned-trusty-bestie-friend long ago, from Germany to Dublin, to Austin TX, to my home, he's been there for me digitally and in person since some of my earliest Hangout Concerts and beyond.

LOST AND FOUND
From across the pond he dried my tears, talked away my fears. And then we haven't done in a while, but what we've done for years... We opened the Hangout doors and invited in the whole world. Like magic our friends – who felt like long-lost loves – started pouring in. Banging on the door. Trying to get in. We laughed. I cried (a little more). They calmed me down (+Dustin W. Stout). We talked stories and memories and planned to make more. We woke people up in the middle of the night in India (sorry +Neeta Tolani)! We heard exotic languages from ancient Scotland (so amazing +Dolidh Young). We packed up for big moves (good luck +Al Ebnereza)! We made new friends (+Denis Bach +Olaf Klein +Jens M Eichkorn). I got my snow showed up by a real Siberian (+Pavel Tumaev)! 

THE MAGIC IS HERE
We discovered the magic we found before is still so real. So alive. So now. I think the rest of the internet still just hasn't quite caught up. I know we'll welcome them with open arms and I'll hope and trust that this is just the beginning of the next amazing chapter for all of us. I for one, want to Hangout with all of you – concerts, but also just long silly wonderful conversations too – who's with me? Maybe it'll all be better than ever.

Thank you to all the people I've met – and am still meeting – here. Everyone who's touched my life and let me sing my way into theirs. You're real friends and I'll be yours forever.

XO, Daria

Ps. This was the best early birthday present, ever. Anyone free for a Bday Hangout on March 10th?

"Big Jaws" - AFRICAN TUESDAY
African Lion (male)
Savute, Chobe National Park, Botswana

Boy, have we got a great theme today for African Tuesday! This one will provide you with lots of eye candy for your viewing pleasure - it's all about #BigCats ! To participate and share your own photos of Africa's big cats:
1. tag your posts with #AfricanTuesday  "Big Cats"
2. include the +African Tuesday to be eligible for our popular weekly Top 5 selection!
3. include the curators (myself, +Grobler du Preez, +Dick Whitlock) so we can pick up on your posts with ease...

This big male was photographed back in 2011 during a safari to th Savute/Savuti region of the Chobe National Park in Botswana. He was merely yawning, but it does look menacing. Lighting was achieved with back-light from the setting sun and a very light dose of fill flash for exposure on the lion. I can't wait to get up there again!

The Ideal Woman
Allama Iqbal is warning the Muslim Women to guard themselves from the conspiracies of Modern Civilization. He exhorts them to remain firm on the footsteps of Lady Fatimah (R.A) and to bring up her children with the qualities of Hussein (R.A)

Fret not thyself
To calculate the profit and the loss,
Being content to tread the well-worn path
Our fathers went before. Be wary of
Time's depredations, and to thy broad breast
Gather thy children close; these meadow-chicks,
Unfledged as yet to fly, have fallen far
From there warm nest. High, high the carvings are
That wrestle with thy soul; be conscious still
And ever of thy model, Fatimah,
So that thy branch may bear a new Hussein,
Our garden blossom with the Golden Age.'

::: Traditional Art
Marci McDonald

Marci McDonald is a self taught artist based in Florida.
Marci uses beauty so splendidly that it could be mistaken for the sole constituent of her work. Her subjects begin as real and grow into something more realistic that involve and honor each other on many levels.

hmmm
 
On my last visit to the Bay Area, I visited +Brian Matiash  at Google's San Francisco office. They've got this classic view of the Bay Bridge. It looks like some giant wall mural, only it's real!

I snapped these with my iPhone 5, processed them with a combo of Snapseed & Vintique. 

_Fun with mobile imagery! _
