I thought of texting you
"good morning, I can’t sleep"
and then I remembered
that you are on a journey
which I am not a part of
and that’s okay
but
good morning
I can’t sleep

Treehouse, Redmond, USA, by Steve Rondel http://goo.gl/B4RMuF

Steve Rondel’s children grew up before he could finish this exeptional treehouse. He started it 20 years ago when his oldest son was 5. Now he is looking for grandchildren to give him an excuse to push on.”

25 Lives by Hwei Lim (lalage) e/R version

It’s my Les Mis anniversary and I wanted to make a small something to commemorate this lovely fandom and the pairing that got me into it. (And the persistent people who got me into it, and those who helped me with this!)

Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: INDIA

India’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).

god. it’s like they only ever read half of the story. harvey milk was deeply closeted, deeply concerned with appearing straight and respectable to his colleagues. a math major. served in the navy. worked on wall street while volunteering for the goldwater campaign. and maybe in some lesser, unkind universe, he continued down this soul-destroying path of self-denial. maybe he settled down and married a woman and had a kid or two and died of old age.

but he walked away from it. all of it. came out of the closet and left every semblance of safety to live openly and run for office explicitly to promote the rights of his community. his neighbours. he was a beacon of hope for the gay community, obviously, but there are other folks he helped that you don’t hear about. san francisco’s labour unions. the bay area’s asian-american communities. the city’s underpaid contract workers. his first priorities were constantly and consistently the establishment’s last priorities. and he did all of this while living openly as a gay man, fucking demanding respect, weathering pervasive death threats. do i even need to remind you how his life ended? how his death echoed throughout the gay community? what he inspired?

you don’t get to do this. you don’t get to freeze him in this moment in time, in the closet, and accuse him of retrogressive republicanism when he literally spend the latter half of his life fighting who he had been and the social forces that had made him that way. you don’t get to ignore who he was and what he did and what he stood for. shame.

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
