Aganetha Dyck is a Canadian whose current research is based on interspecies communication between humans and honeybees. Working in a collaborative process with the insects, she creates sculptural and visual representations of this communication in a way that neither party could have created individually.

The first patient of the day…

A tawny owl was brought in this morning after being found on the side of the road.

He had a broken beak, an ulcer in one of his eye and blood coming from his left ear. On top of it, almost all his tail feathers were gone, except one! We have no idea what happened to him, although it’s most likely to have been an RTA (road traffic accident).

This unlucky chap is looking very weak, but we are doing everything we can to save him.

Please Text WILD3 to 70300 to give a one-off donation of £3.00 towards his care.

The owl says Twit-Twoo! (we think it means ‘thank you’!)

Public body modification can force you to trade one life for another - it’s very rare to be able to have it all (but it can happen with effort). Looking like yourself will force you to work much, much harder than people who all look the same. Being free requires a lot more work than being a slave. Running your own business is more effort than working for someone else. Being an actor is more difficult than watching a movie. Cooking a meal is more difficult than buying a cheeseburger at a fast food joint… but, there are still people left in this world who believe that sometimes the difficult - but free - path is the more rewarding. The fundamental question in becoming publicly modified is a question of finding a balance between how free you want to be and how hard you want to work. The more free you are, the more responsibility you have to take for yourself. The more you blend back into the crowd, the less freedom you have, but the ‘easier’ your life gets. But is it really your life if you’re not controlling it?

Jeralean Talley is 115 years old 

the oldest living American

These are her hands when she was 113

I hope her kids, grandkids, great grandkids, whoever her family is, is taking advantage of being in the presence of living history…

So many questions… so much knowledge of what was. How it was. I wish I could have a conversation with her…
