George Orwell holding a puppy while standing with fellow servicemen during the Spanish Civil War, ca 1937. Ernest Hemingway can be seen in the background.
I have a print of this 1949 Herman Leonard shot (taken in NYC’s famous Downbeat cafe) which has hung on the wall of every place I’ve lived for the past 7 years.
It’s the most beautiful photo I can think of, bar none.

Yup yup yup yup yup
Oooh, I love the light
very secret dog meeting
"we must overthrow the bunnies and the ladybugs"
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
