A friend of mine did a little recap and got really sad about some things that happened in the last years to Misha which where not only nice. I know it isn´t always everything good but a lot of stuff is very wonderful. All the love and appreciation we all have for Misha is wonderful, the guy himself is wonderful. Sometimes we need to leave things out that make us unhappy and focus on the good stuff. I have so much love for Misha who is a wonderful human being, somebody who truly cares! He inspires many people to go through their world with open eyes - for the little chance of spreading some love and kindness, sometimes to strangers, sometimes to people they love, and this all makes the world a better place! And leaves no space for hate that is not neccessary and a waste of time and energy. We can´t change things that we have no influence on but we can influence things that we have a hand on, already little things count, stuff everyone can do in their everyday life. I learned that from him, he made me go for stuff I would probably not have gone for without him, it makes us grow over ourselves. He is somebody special, one of the really good ones and honestly I am totaly loosing my first intention to write this post while I am chaotic thinking about everything I want to say (lol) but this is a Misha Collins Appreciation Post from somebody who is still totaly unused to tumblr and it´s peculiarities and next to that tries to use some english as a no native speaker (another lol) but it comes from my heart :-)    <3  <— my heart :-) Ok that´s it… at least I think that… you never know…sometimes Reas come back…uhhh…ok I should stop here…now…now…ok NOW! Have a great day everyone! 

Friend: “Why do you like Vegeta so much?

image

He always loses,

image

He’s weak.”

Me: “Maybe because I realize that strength

image

Isn’t about always winning.

image

That his greatest battle wasn’t the enemies he faced;

image

Or even his rivalry against Goku.

image

His greatest battle was against himself.

image

Overcoming what he was raised to be,

image

To become the hero he had to be.

image

And because he won that battle.

image

That’s why I will always love Vegeta.”

Kudos on posting the recent Japanese screen. There is so much art to explore, yet we tend to focus mostly on European ones.

Well, this is a blog about European art specifically, but I also feature early modern artwork of Europeans from Asia, Africa, and the Americas because it shows how globalized our world was in reality, as opposed to the idea that everyone was very isolated in the past.

I recommend checking out the Nanban/Namban tags for many more similar artworks featuring both white Europeans as well as Europeans of color, including Black and mixed race Portuguese and Spanish sailors and traders like these men:

I find it fascinating to look at these images because they are so far removed from American stereotypes about race. All of these men are Europeans, and they are depicted that way by the Japanese artist who made the screen.
