a glimpse


glimpse: WOULD YOU RATHER | Would you rather be fed, safe and unfree or hungry, unprotected and free? Would you rather have someone take care of you or take care of yourself? Would you rather live in a shelter with hundreds of others or be alone? Would you rather stay stray or become domestic? Would you rather put up with a -30 °C Kazakh winter or be put down?

glimpse: SEE  | If you think the world is only what you see, you’re blind.
