Let there be hamsters

I was going to write another depressing post about politics, violence, and injustice. Until I saw this:

In late summer the European hamster gets ready for hibernation. He fills up his pouches with grains, roots, plants or insects and transports them into his food chamber (that's why he is running).

A hamster in the wild beats ISIS, presidential campaigning, white supremacists, and Syrian refugees any day of the week.

The photo, by Julian Ghahreman-Rad of Austria, is one of the winners of the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards. You can see more of them here.

You’re welcome. Happy Thanksgiving.
