Art is Life

Bury my heart next to yours.

I have big secrets - and pretty soon, I’ll be able to share them with you!

“So if people ever look down upon you for crying for fictional characters, you should give them a gentle, pitying look and feel bad for them. If they’ve never cried for a fictional character, then they’ve never loved one (and what a joy that is). If they’ve never cried at a book, a movie, a piece of music, then they’ve missed one of the great pleasures life has to offer. Just because fiction does not contain things that are real doesn’t mean it doesn’t contain truth, and we find it through the alchemy of our tears.”

Frost Flowers

Frost flowers, also known as ice ribbons, are common in the arctic region of the ocean, but extremely rare when they occur on land by a plant. Only several species of plants can produce these extremely beautiful, yet sadly temporary spectacles.

They are produced when the water in the soil is not frozen but the air temperature is. As water in the soil is drawn up through a plant’s stem, the water freezes and expands, breaking the stem walls and creating a flow of ice. As crack after crack yields another layer of ice, the total effect resembles the many layers of a flower petal. Each layer of ice is so thin, the frost flower is almost weightless and will shatter if touched.

Seeing these in person is on my life list.

Tick Tock. Tick Tock. 

Our women are missing.

Shhh…

Can you hear that?

Their spirits are whispering. 

Every place one of ours has fallen,

Has a soul dancing for justice to not be forgotten.

You may have pushed us aside…

Oh, but we have not repressed our sisters bloody breasts.

The blood splattered is across your chest.

Everyday that passes another life slips away,

Another family with hearts on display.

How foolish you are to think we’d run away…

Tick Tock. Tick Tock.

The Hanging Coffins of Sagada

The people of Sagada in the Philippines follow a unique burial ritual. The elderly carve their own coffins out of hollowed logs. If they are too weak or ill, their families prepare their coffins instead. The dead are placed inside their coffins (sometimes breaking their bones in the process of fitting them in), and the coffins are brought to a cave for burial.

Instead of being placed into the ground, the coffins are hung either inside the caves or on the face of the cliffs, near the hanging coffins of their ancestors. The Sagada people have been practicing such burials for over 2,000 years and some of the coffins are well over a century old.

Talk to Cirion
Be around Cirion
Think about Cirion
Listen to Cirion
Do stuff with Cirion

The funniest part is that this could be either Tricky or Marrcesh.

Rules to remember!

“That summer I caught a butterfly
and devoured bowls of melons

but out of all those lies
“I love you” was most delicious.”
