sights and sounds
My name is Christian. I'm 29. I believe in fairies but I don't believe in god. I love music, cats, red wine, science, mythology, nature, The Moon, books, Love and many other things like Nutella, feathers, and spiders. I have a (well-documented) weakness for alternative female singer-songwriters. I post things related to art, music, literature, space, and pop culture (mostly 80s and 90s), with fairies, atheism and pretty boys sprinkled throughout.
Here are four things that have made my life a little better: 1. Tori Amos. 2. Virginia Woolf. 3. The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. 4. Six Feet Under.
"Did it matter then, she asked herself, walking towards Bond Street, did it matter that she must inevitably cease completely; all this must go on without her; did she resent it; or did it not become consoling to believe that death ended absolutely? but that somehow in the streets of London, on the ebb and flow of things, here, there, she survived, Peter survived, lived in each other, she being part, she was positive, of the trees at home; of the house there, ugly, rambling all to bits and pieces as it was; part of people she had never met; being laid out like a mist between the people she knew best, who lifted her on their branches as she had seen the trees lift the mist, but it spread ever so far, her life, herself."
-Virginia Woolf, "Mrs. Dalloway"
"How did it go so fast?" you'll say as we are looking back. And then we'll understand—we held gold dust, in our hands."
-Tori Amos, "gold dust"
