"Many of my movies have strong female leads - brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man." - Hayao Miyazaki

Lemminkäinen’s Mother, 1897

In the Finnish epic Kalevala, Lemminkäinen drowns in the river of the underworld while attempting to capture the Black Swan. His mother fishes her dead son’s body parts from the river and sews him back together. The only thing that can restore his life is a drop of honey from the dwelling of Ukko, the God of the Sky.

In this painting, Lemminkäinen’s mother waits for the bee to deliver the precious drop of honey to revive her son.

Joan Fontcuberta

I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking; “How on earth did that priest train a dolphin to carry him like that?” Or maybe you’re thinking; “Where did the photographer have to stand to capture that image?” Or perhaps, in fact, you’re thinking; “This HAS to be fake.” But all of these lines of inquiry are valid in the world of Joan Fontcuberta, the Spanish artist and photographer who’s latest exhibition has just landed at The Science Museum’s Media Space.

His new show, Stranger Than Fiction demonstrates a complex personal mythology that treads a fine line between fiction and reality, blending outlandish taxidermy, forged documents and staged photographs with sculptural works that resemble archeological excavations and fake skeletons. His mission is simple; to question the reliability of photography and the fallibility of our own perceptions while building an alternative scientific history to a mythological world – also he’s just having a bit of fun creating mermaid skeletons and snakes with legs. Definitely one to check out, although you’ll definitely be disappointed that the winged unicorn monkey doesn’t actually exist. (by  James Cartwright)

Miyazaki chilling with a cat

(Source: nevebianca, via catnipcharge)

I start to see that I surround myself with broken people; more broken than me. Ah, yes, let me count your cracks. Let’s see, one hundred, two…yes, you’ll do nicely. A cracked companion makes me look whole, gives me something outside myself to care for. When I’m with whole, healed people I feel my own cracks; the shatters, the insanities of dislocation in myself.

Sickened; Julie Gregory (via eileenssummerreadinglist)

Because when I read, I don’t really read; I pop a beautiful sentence into my mouth and suck it like a fruit drop, or I sip it like a liqueur until the thought dissolves in me like alcohol, infusing brain and heart and coursing on through the veins to the root of each blood vessel.
