DPS and a list of beautiful words? Oh yes.

Love.

Sadly half the people I talk to need me to explain when I talk like this.

"oh no, that’s a really pretty dragon"

ancient flight rising proverb (via saelr-clan)

"Oh no, I’m broke again" - what usually follows

(via inkyflight)

I realise I don’t have a rank, but I would like to request a uniform.

Kimmel Center in Philly had busts of composers. If you press the red button, it plays the composer’s music.

Dawn Upshaw sings Faure’s song cycle, La chanson d’Eve

Really beautiful poetry by Charles van Lerberghe exploring Eve’s first days on Earth.  One of my favorite excerpts:

 Does he know at this moment
 that I'm loosening my hair
 and that it breathes;
 can he smell it on the ground?

(from VII. Veilles-tu, ma senteur de soleil)
