For those of you who criticize Janelle’s signature monochromatic look.
From her speech on “Black Girls Rock”:
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” - Janelle Monáe
Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
In short, leave those bunnies alone! Same thing with baby deer. However, baby birds can safely be put back in their nests—or if you can’t reach the nest, securely zip-tie (or otherwise fasten without nails so you don’t hurt the tree) an empty plastic butter container (like the small Country Crock ones) with some nesting material in it as high as you can to the tree the nest is in and put the baby in there. Often the parents will visit both nests.
If you do find baby animals where you know the mother/parents are dead/not coming back/have abandoned the baby, PLEASE take the babies to the nearest wildlife rehab center. This includes squirrels, raccoons, etc. as well as the above. Yes, I know there are stories of “I raised these baby squirrels and they turned out just fine! They even come and visit me!” However, most people don’t manage to care for the wild critters well enough and the animals end up malnourished, sick, or dead. (Fun fact: did you know baby rabbits eat their mother’s droppings to get necessary bacterial components to build their immune systems?)
A wildlife rehab is simply a better place with more resources and training, and additionally they focus on minimizing human contact enough that the animals that can be released back into the wild will be less likely to equate humans with “source of food”, which never goes well for the animal.
Same with foxes! Unless you know for certain that the mother is dead then leave them alone. Every year large numbers of cubs are taken from the wild when they shouldn’t have been. The vixen does not stay with the cubs during most of the day and its normal to see cubs wondering about alone! The vixen will usually be resting up somewhere nearby, so unless the cubs appear to be starving/dehydrated then they are probably fine!
Also remember that foxes often live in family groups and it’s not uncommon for the main vixen’s daughter/sister to step in and care for the cubs if anything should happen to her. Once the cubs are past the weaning stage they can survive without the mother so long as the father is around to bring them food. It’s also recommended in such situations that food is left at the den daily to help out. This is a much better situation for the cubs then taking them out of the wild.
Sadly the vast majority of cubs that have been rehabilitated in captivity die within the first few days/weeks of release. Cubs have a much higher chance of survival if they grow up in the wild where they belong.

“There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.”
