My students had a chitchat stop during the transect survey at my old job; New Heaven Reef Conservation Program. They were performing ecological monitoring survey of the reef. Picture from 2015

Fertilizer maker staff at the farm. All of these cows were bought/rescued from slaughter houses to produce fertilizer for the whole farm. Their only job is to eat and poo. Thank you, cow friends!

The old hand... The hand that worked in rice fields, the hand that cleaned other people's houses, and the hand that raised 3 children alone after her janitor husband was killed by a drunk driver. All 3 children moved away to big cities. 1 child returned home with drug, alcohol and mental health problems from working as a construction worker the city. 
It's been 70 years, the hand still keeps on working... spinning and weaving cotton to support herself and her son. 
This is one of the stories from our work. @rosyconnell and I are beginning to create a new social start-up. Stay tuned for the 'Living Loom'.

Oh, when them cotton bolls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton,
In them old cotton fields back home...cotton fields back home🎵🎶♩ This cotton that I picked up was almost ruined by the rain.Generally the cotton starts to be ready to be harvested around this time of year and will keep coming out until February but occasional rain will make the cotton rotten. You must pick it and dry it right away otherwise it will be no use spinning it into thread. 📸@rosyconnell

Beautiful moment between a mother and daughter. 
After the rainy season, this village's community gathering up to work as a team for 24 hours in order to pick, spin, weave, dye the cotton and tailor into monk ropes to offer them to the monks at a local temple. This is an ancient tradition that's been brought back for 10 years.  The harmonious ceremony helps continue the hand woven textile culture and bring together joy and happiness.

Wachirathan waterfall after the rain. Sometimes you must let you and your camera get a bit wet to be close to the nature and hoping for no flash flood...risky business.
