Live in This World - Epistolae Feminae

Ask me anything   Just another queer geeky white disabled feminist, a comic-book reading, beer loving, cat worshiping, dead language wielding, gender defying, obsessed with queens, knitter of socks and a CHICK WITH FEELINGS. And yes, I live in this world.

I have a master's degree in medieval history and I'm not afraid to use it.

In Blackwater Woods

Look, the trees / are turning/ their own bodies/ into pillars// of light, / are giving off the rich / fragrance of cinnamon / and fulfillment, // the long tapers / of cattails / are bursting and floating away over / the blue shoulders // of the ponds, / and every pond, / no matter what its / name is, is // nameless now. / Every year / everything / I have ever learned // in my lifetime / leads back to this: the fires / and the black river of loss / whose other side // is salvation, / whose meaning / none of us will ever know. / To live in this world // you must be able / to do three things: / to love what is mortal; / to hold it // against your bones knowing / your own life depends on it; / and, when the time comes to let it go, / to let it go.// - Mary Oliver


Oh dear god

If he wasn’t otherwise a good roommate, I’d have to smack him.

* people who try to shoehorn religion into science are stupid because they’re trying to prove something that can’t be proven.

* he blames black people in Ferguson for electing a white sheriff and council, and lack of black representation in the area on lazy people who can’t be bothered to go out and vote.

ugh

Sutton Hoo 75th anniversary

On this day, in 1939, archaeologist Basil Brown investigated the largest of many Anglo-Saxon burial mounds on the property of Mrs Edith Pretty in Sutton Hoo. He made one of the most spectacular archaeological discoveries of all time – an undisturbed burial of an important early 7th-century East Anglian. 

The hoard is displayed in Room 41 of the British Museum, which has just reopened, fully renovated for the first time. Admission is free, so please go and submit a post about your visit. I’d be more than happy to post it.

Reblog if you do too. Just to prove that it is more normal than what people actually think.

helenish:

—Derek Hale, Werewolf Rights Activist, calls for a widespread media boycott, in a defiant, impassioned speech condemning the recent release of Hunter’s Code IV, which  includes scenes of graphic violence against werewolves and an interactive multi-player “dead pool” which updates in real time as players compete against each other to rack up in-game kills.  

well, this is now my headcanon

ofhouseadama:

A brief history of fandom, for the teenagers on here who somehow think tumblr invented fandom:

  • 1960s: with the advent of Star Trek, fandom moves into the public sphere for the first time with a television in almost every home, creating a large group of people all excited…

at least i wasn’t alive for the birth of fandom?

this is an example of what i love about zentangle: at a glance, it seems like this person had an unholy ability to keep everything perfectly uniform, but upon closer inspection, you can see that the edge question mark looking thangs are not precise, just close enough to fool the eye.
