Voyager 1 probe has just reached the edge of the solar system and is still flying to some unknown places. This probe was sent to space on septembre 2nd 1977, and it's still cruising out there. Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 was made originally to explore and study the farest planets of the solar system, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and their moons. They even discovered some more moons in Saturn's and Neptune's rings. Their primary goal finished, they were sent to discover more and more, farther and farther until they stop working.
Voyager 1 is now the farest human probe ever, and it's going to keep going until about year 2020. This probe doesn't want to go home. It still wants to travel far far away, checking on the amazing wonders of the space. It still want to cruise this new empty space, looking back at us and sending pictures and datas, saying hi from time to time to us.
It must sometimes feels alone in the dark cold space, but we are still and we'll always be amazed by what it can do.
Go on Voyager 1, amaze us more everytime, makes us dream!
It's time. It's full moon tonight. It's time to go.
Rabbit prepared his tools before going. Nothing must be forgotten for tonight's trip. He has only one night to do it, so he has to make sure of everything. Tonight he's going to collect some ingredients for his mistress's potion, like he does every month at the same time.
This little rabbit is just the rabbit on the moon which you can see when you look at the moon, especially on full moon. He is the companion of Chang'e, moon goddess for whom he prepare some potion from time to time.
And on every full moon, Rabbit goes back to earth to get the ingredients for his potion and also food. Only on full moon he can jump down to earth, do what he has to do and go back to moon before sunrise! Otherwise he'll be stuck on earth for a month, and he don't like it when he leave his mistress all alone that long.
It's time. Package is ready, let's go. Rabbit took his backpack and headed to earth slowly sliding over the first moonbeams. Yes, when the moon is full, beams appears from the moon to earth. That's his way to get to earth.
Arriving on earth, no time to rest! He needs to go fast to get back to the moon just before sunrise. He knows where to find his ingredients, no time to waste. He goes fast from a bush to another, gathering fruits and seeds and leaves, looking from time to time to the moon up there checking how much time he has left.
After a long night of collecting and gathering, and a full bag, rabbit sit down on a stone, for a little rest, watching the moon. He thought about his friends down here that he miss and promised himself to pay them a visit next time he comes to earth, on next full moon. He likes his job, being on the moon. From up there he can see what's happening on eath, and look after his friends.
Sunrise is approching. Rabbit get his bag, looked at the east where the first lights of the sun were coming, and then he jumped on the last moonbeam, back home to his mistress. On his way to the moon, he looked back to earth saying "see you later beautiful".
Strangepair has a new project!
It's a postcard project!
It began when we were talking about how people often use postcards nowadays, and then Mehdi had a cool idea, we should send a postcard to each other. But not regular postcards!
We are going to make them and draw something on them! Homemade postcards! And the drawings we will make will be connected so we can put the postcards beside each other and make a long postcard line!
So keep visiting our blog, we will post the photos of our postcard here! :)

Thank you Justin and all of The Farewell Continental for this awesome song!
Have you ever felt that you're stuck at the same place for a long time?
Haven't able to move your body, your mind, your perspective, and just stay on the same place even when your imagination is somewhere out there?
That's what the Mr. Mountain think about right now.
Mr. Mountain is a big mountain, he has a beautiful landscape, amazing scenery, a lot of secret places that people must visit before they die, and another interesting things.
But he has one thing in his mind.
He wants to see the world.
He knows that he's big and tall and he can see everything from his place, but he has a limited eyesight, and he feels bored for staying there for a hundred or maybe a thousand years.
So he wants to move, go to another place, to feel his skin touching another land, enjoy another scenery, and meet a lot of new friends, new mountains, and everything.
He always waiting for that time to come.
Until one day..
The sky was blue that day, it was a perfect day to spend the day looking at the sky, wondering.
But suddenly Mr. Mountain heard someone's voice..
"Such a beautiful day to travel, isn't it Sir?"
And then Mr. Mountain was looking up, and there's Cloud there, floating above him.
Cloud was a very white creature, with some curls and a fading tail. He was looking down to the land where Mr. Mountain stands still, with a big smile of fullness.
"Don't talk to me about travel, kid!", said Mr. Mountain.
"Oh why so? Travelling is good, I love to travel" , says Cloud.
"Well.. not for me. I don't know how to travel, I don't even know how to move from this place!" , Mr. Mountain answers.
And then Mr. Mountain tells Cloud his story how he wanted to travel so much. It started years ago when he was a young mountain. He was looking at the sky, and all he wants to do is to travel, and to look at the sky from a lot of different places.
But then he grew older, and he realized that his dream would be just a dream, cause he can't move anywhere, he's just a mountain, who will stay at the same place for another thousand of years.
First, let me tell you what is a treehouse. It's not the little house on the tree where your kids can go and play, it's a real house that stands entirely on a tree. A real house with all the rooms and everything is hanging in the air. Isn't it beautiful?
Cool houses with cool architecture are so amazing! Especially when there is different floors and stages in the house! Well, actually not all of these house are treehouses. They're more like houses standing on poles, with unsual architecture on an unusual ground. These uncommon houses must be really fun to live in. They seem interesting architecturally and interior design speaking. Why would anyone leave from there?
Jessie walked home from the bus stop. It's been a long time since she didn't get on this road. So many memories coming back makes her feel a little nostalgic. not so much changes around this road, maybe some more houses, but the old ones are still here, same as before. At the end of the road, her house will stand up as always, on that ancient tree, where she left it.
Funny feeling, she hitted the road for so many years, and coming back home is the best feeling she's having right now. She missed the treehouse so much.. She never felt home in all the places she visited. She visited amazing places, but the return to her home makes her feel warm and relieved and her heart began to beat faster.
