May 3rd, Shades of Grey… (Love Liz)

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.” ~ Anne Lamott

April 2nd, And Still the Rain Falls… (Love Liz)

“I went to bed and woke in the middle of the night thinking I heard someone cry, thinking I myself was weeping, and I felt my face and it was dry.
Then I looked at the window and thought: Why, yes, it’s just the rain, the rain, always the rain, and turned over, sadder still, and fumbled about for my dripping sleep and tried to slip it back on.” ~ Ray Bradbury
Tulips the color of fire
Tulips the color of fire
Spring flame in the rain
Spring flame in the rain
Tulips in the rain
Tulips in the rain
Rain fall on us all
Rain fall on us all
Rain or tears?
Rain or tears?
Even the smallest things are beautiful in the rain.
Even the smallest things are beautiful in the rain.
So intricate
So intricate
Red the color of love
Red the color of love
Its a crown.
Its a crown.
Nothing reflects like faith
Nothing reflects like faith
A beacon
A beacon

October 29th, Wandering Eye… (Funko Fantasy)

 

“Should I put it in my pocket?
Should I keep it on a leash?
Whatever I do it just wants to break free.
It’s peering in a window with it’s unblinking stare,
It’s clearly fascinated with what goes on in there.
Should you wear a pirate’s eyepatch to try and restrict it’s reach?
Maybe we could distract it if I waved around this peach.” ~ Savlonic

October 17th, This week Sherlock Holmes… (Funko Fantasy)

My mind,” he said, “rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. I can dispense then with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation. That is why I have chosen my own particular profession, or rather created it, for I am the only one in the world.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle

October 10th, This week’s theme, Iron Man… (Funko Fantasy)

“What makes a hero? Courage, strength, morality, withstanding adversity? Are these the traits that truly show and create a hero? Is the light truly the source of darkness or vice versa? Is the soul a source of hope or despair? Who are these so called heroes and where do they come from? Are their origins in obscurity or in plain sight?” ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky

October 6th, Classical… (Funko Fantasy)

“No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. What does such advice mean? Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure. Happiness is a glory shining far down upon us out of Heaven. She is a divine dew which the soul, on certain of its summer mornings, feels dropping upon it from the amaranth bloom and golden fruitage of Paradise.” ~ Charlotte Brontë
