Writing is play in the same way that playing the piano is ‘play,’ or putting on a theatrical ‘play’ is play. Just because something’s fun doesn’t mean it isn’t serious.

Everything I have written is closely related to something I have lived through.

~Henrik Ibsen

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.

~Anton Chekhov (1860-1904)

I began to speak of style, of the army of works, of the army in which all kinds of weapons may come into play. No iron can stab the heart with such force as a period put just at the right place.

O SWEET everlasting Voices be still;
Go to the guards of the heavenly fold
And bid them wander obeying your will
Flame under flame, till Time be no more;
Have you not heard that our hearts are old,
That you call in birds, in wind on the hill,
In shaken boughs, in tide on the shore?
O sweet everlasting Voices be still.

W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  The Wind Among the Reeds.  1899.

Meet 9-year-old Joshua. He recently had to go in for surgery and was so nervous that he brought along his stuffed wolf. The wolf had a tear in its leg, so Joshua asked if his doctor could do a wolf surgery too. His parents said ‘no.’But when they walked into the recovery room to see their son, they discovered the little wolf laying next to him; this time, with a surgical mask, a little cast, and surgical quality sutures in his leg.We think the entire surgical staff deserves some serious respect and love for this act of kindness.

Do Cancers get frustrated really easily? nervousbrkdown

zodiacsociety:

Yes they do, their surroundings and their feelings are very much tied together, so they can easily feel the frustration of a situation.

January 15th 1759: British Museum opens

On this day in 1759, the British Museum was first opened to the public in London. The museum was based on the collections left to the nation by physician and naturalist Sir Hans Sloane who intended for his possessions to be put on public view. Parliament established the British Museum in June 1753. The collection was housed in a 17th century mansion called Montagu House in Bloomsbury. The original items included items from Aztec Mexico, Ancient Egypt and Japan. The most popular items were the Egyptian mummies. The British Museum is still a major attraction in London with its sizeable collection of artefacts from around the world.
