I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..

Elegant Floral Handpainted Ceramicware Coffee Cups by Yevgenia Davidoff

Artist Yevgenia Davidoff hand paints elegant floral and nature inspired designs on dishware. From ceramics to glass, her delicate work adorns the surface, resembling realistic pressed flower illusions.

The works thrive from a concept of art being used in every aspect of life because of its ability to enhance the senses. The graceful dishware set turns an ordinary tea into a surprisingly special experience of food and art mixed together as one . In this case, Davidoff teases our visual senses and taste senses by painting delicate images of flowers, vines and leaves entwine around plates, cups, mugs, jugs and tumblers. Davidoff’s quaint teaware and vases can be purchased in the online shop Etsy.

The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. I use the word enlightenment all the time—not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment.

Mogeko Castle

You must install the RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to play.

Yonaka Kurai, an extremely ordinary high schooler. She takes the usual train home.
Though it’s all ordinary, today is somewhat special. Today, her beloved brother comes home.
But when she wakes, the train has stopped at an unfamiliar station…

Mogeko Castle is a “prosciutto adventure game” made by Mogeko (site name Deep-Sea Prisoner) in RPG Maker VX Ace. It’s not an RPG - there are no battles, and the story is totally linear.

It was Mogeko’s very first game (before The Gray Garden), but was recently remade in RPG Maker VX Ace, which is going to be the standard for future Mogeko games. The estimated playtime is an hour and a half to three hours. Features Joyous Tag (0.1%), Entrails (0.9%), High School Girls (9%), and Prosciutto (90%).

WARNINGS: This game is very violent and contains some triggering content, both in violence and implied rape, especially in the bad endings. Mogeko recommends it for “ages 15 and up,” which should be alarming considering their other games are supposedly “for all ages.”

Additionally, compared to Gray Garden and Wadanohara, the game is more focused on being absurd and violent than having a plot, so please don’t get your hopes up for the same plot quality (or amount of unique characters) as those games.
