Cats. They can be absurdly annoying, quirky and inscrutable, and yet they are endearingly cute. Their charm is undeniable which makes them easily forgivable, but for all the frustrations and snubs, it is worth it when they decide, on their own schedule, to grace you with their love and companionship.

Caesura. Those ever-hunted for their image, in film or tv, or the hacked security cameras of 98% of our public spaces, now become your guardians. A line of heroic strength. Standing up to the beast, screaming, ”#timesup!”
