transcendent thorn,
Long after the bloom will fade
the sharpened thorn remains

And all that's best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes

Don’t think you can persuade me with appeals to my intellectual vanity.

Thomas Harris - Red Dragon 


"Retro Dinosauroid Tribe" by Simon Roy [via]

Based on Dale Russell’s obsolete vision of what dinosaurs (Troodons) might’ve evolved into had they not gone extinct.

Ignaz Unterberger. Hebe Jovis Aquilae Nectar minstrans (Hebe holding a cup of Nectar to Jupiter in the form of an Eagle). 1796.

The depths of winter longing are ice within my heart
The shards of broken covenants lie sharp against my soul
The wraiths of long-lost ecstasy still keep us two apart
The amen winds of bitterness sill keen from turn to pole.

The scares are twisted tendons, the stumps of struck-off limbs,
The aching pit of hunger and throb of unset bone,
My sanded burning eyeballs, as might within them dims,
Add nothin to the torment of lying here alone…

The shimmering flames of fever trace out your blessed face
My broken eardrums echo yet your voice inside my head
I do not fear the darkness that comes to me apace
I only dread the loss of you thy comes when I am dead.

Robert A. Heinlein - Stranger in a Strange Land

You’re alive, Bod. That means you have infinite potential. You can do anything, make anything, dream anything.
