When late night #pinterest browsing turns into sporadic morning #DIY #projects. As well as the realization that finger #painting sometimes works #best. #me #silly #selfie #selca #nomakeup
I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.

"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
Too fucking cute

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.
좋은 친구와 좋은 책, 그리고 살아있는 양심이야말로 가장 이상적인 생활이다. (Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience; this is the ideal life.)
Korean Proverb, 한국 속담 (via baldwiniv-1185)
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)
