She has the most beautiful eyes

2

The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognised you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother Lily’s. Oh yes, I knew her. Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumour has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.

We need help raising funds for our beautiful shepherd puppy with a broken jaw. https://www.youcaring.com/brokenjaw

Our director received an urgent call today (7/14/14) about an injured German shepherd hiding under coils in the back of a warehouse. She left immediately to help this poor girl.

We went to our normal vet only to find that she has a dislocated, fractured and infected jaw due to head trauma; most likely hit by a car. She has two teeth missing from her bottom jaw and a possible piece of her jaw missing. She is bleeding from the whites of her eyes and needed to be rushed to OVRS for immediate surgery. Please say a prayer, donate and share our newest rescue.

For direct donations, please contact Oakland Veterinary Referral Services at (248) 334-6877. Thanks so much to all who have donated so far.

She says: I could have loved him better, but back then I didn’t even know how to love myself.

She says: I think he loved me back, but then again what is love to a boy who has nothing to lose?

She says: Some days it was a fairy tale and others, a horror story; we created thunder storms with the flick of a tongue, in the blink of an eye.

She says: It was messy and it was destructive and it broke my heart, and if you asked me if I’d go back, I’d most likely say no.

But, she says, with a pause and a smile, it was still beautiful while it lasted. And it is still the best love story I’ve ever written.

Sweet Animated Illustrations Show The Small, Happy Moments in Life

Japanese illustrator Maori Sakai’s illustrations draw inspiration from the micro moments in life that we take for granted, such as the falling of the leaves, falling asleep while reading a good book, the smell of coffee in the morning and other instances, which give us instant happiness. Overall, she hopes to convey a happy and inspirational message with doses of beauty like the presence of flowers, leaves, birds and butterflies. There is a strong element of romanticization in her work. She is subtly asking for a return to nature to find happiness, as well as glorifying the small moments in habitual life. 

A digital artist, Sakai has always loved the power of the animated image. By animating her work, she is able to capture the subtle changes of a scene or the change of mood. She told My Modern Met:

“For some reason, I can’t keep my eyes off the short loop. There’s beauty in nature and in daily experiences. I think most people depend on others or a lot of money to feel this happiness, but I think, happiness is always a state of mind.”

a world where you cannot see faces. they are a blur to everyone. the way we watch for body language is by watching hands. we know what a smile sounds like, but the image slips away. 

except: love. the people you love. you only know the eyes of your parents, of your sister. you only have seen the faces of your aunt who always stops by for wine.

the first time you saw brown eyes it was in your mother. for a long time you thought she was the only person with eyes like that. like oak trees. you thought it was the most beautiful thing you’d ever seen. later when you were in forth grade you’d meet a boy who had eyes like a fawn. you’d help him not reverse his letters. and you’d stare at his eyes in awe.

you meet your best friend because you both see each other’s nose first, and then the picture develops. she has a wild set of teeth and you love her for that, for how she smiles so big that it blinds you. her cheeks have the only freckles you’ve ever met, and that makes them golden.

you meet people slowly. sometimes you can catch small moments on trains, in cities, in dark theaters. the momentary love of a person who lets you cut them in line - a little shadow on their cheekbone. the flash of a wink from a store clerk. it’s gone before you can tack it down, but it leaves you blushing for a long time after.

the first girl you kiss has acne scars. you settle your hands on them. she is beautiful and flawless. she helps you figure out your math problems. she sees everyone’s face, because she loves everyone. it is different for her, because she’s aromantic. she’s the kindest mathematician you’ve ever met.

a world where beauty doesn’t exist. you only know the faces of the ones you love and that’s it. they are beautiful because they’re yours. because you love them. because seeing them for the first time changed everything.

the first time you meet her, you freeze. it’s the way her eyelashes look while she reads. your heart tries to break through your chest and kiss her pink lips (you can see her lips!) and your hands shake. you settle for walking by her table only to trip. she doesn’t laugh. she asks you if you’re okay. you want to say: i am now. i am now. god, what a perfect face you have.

your face, in the mirror, sometimes clear, often not. sometimes you don’t look at all, worried about what you’ll find there. you think - maybe i have a straight nose? but you’re not sure. it is hard for you. a lot. but one day, after a bad night you somehow survived: you catch sight of your eyes. brown like your mother’s, full of light and amber, a smile at their corners. and you think: it’s nice to meet you. and you never forget. you’re beautiful too. even if you don’t always see it.

Scientists Explain Why Mummy Blinks

Recorded in time lapse photos and videos, the creepy phenomenon has been the subject of various speculations for some years. This week, Italian newspapers again reported that Rosalia Lombardo, a two-year-old girl who died of pneumonia in 1920, moves her eyelids several times during the day, slightly opening them to reveal intact blue eyes. 

One of the world’s best preserved mummies, Rosalia is the most famous among some 8,000 thousands mummies lining the catacombs beneath the Capuchin convent in Palermo, Sicily.

Nicknamed “sleeping beauty,” she looks like a 2-year-old baby taking a nap. Poking above a blanket, her peaceful face is framed by curly blond hair, while a ribbon is still tied around her head.

Although amazingly mummified, Rosalia doesn’t open and shut her eyes.

“It’s an optical illusion produced by the light that filters through the side windows, which during the day is subject to change,” Dario Piombino-Mascali, curator of the Capuchin Catacombs, explains.

Signs as girlfriends

Aries: the girlfriend who teases you lovingly and plays with your hair a lot, she’ll buy you flowers tons. You’ll notice she tends to always having something burning (ex incense, candles, sage.)

Taurus: the girlfriend who has books and books of pressed flowers, her room is filled with plants. She loves earthy toned colors and her smile is the most beautiful thing ever. She’ll make you feel celestial.

Gemini: the girlfriend who’s not into pda but will smother you when you two are alone, she will give you little gifts and compliment you tons.

Cancer: the girlfriend who wears light colors, she loves dancing (but only when she thinks she’s alone.), she’ll give you nose kisses and call you cute. Loves picnics.

Leo: the girlfriend who’ll make sure everybody knows you two are dating, she’ll probably beat you in sports. She has luminescent eyes and an stunning smile.

Virgo: the girlfriend who is always wondering how you’re doing and what you’re thinking, often very insecure but only due to over thinking. She’ll help you with whatever she can. Much like Aquarius she’ll always want to be touching you.


Libra: the girlfriend with soft lips and a cherry blossom heart, she loves picking flowers and will probably kiss you loads. Loves pda but won’t admit it.

Scorpio:  the girlfriend who loves intensely, she has beautiful eyes and a smirk that’ll knock you off your feet.

Sagittarius: the girlfriend who’ll take you on adventures (even if that’s just going to the grocery store at two am), she’ll hold your hand and yell at anyone who’s rude to you.

Capricorn: the girlfriend who takes you over to the river to paint rocks, she’s not very passonite butll always make sure you know how much she loves you. Which is a whole lot.

Aquarius: the girlfriend who will let you know when you’re wrong, and will beat you in both sports and debates. She’s got beautiful eyes and soft hair. She’ll always want to touch you, and you’ll always want to be touched by her.

Pisces: the girlfriend with warm hands and an even warmer smile. She loves nature walks and visiting pet shelters. Please be soft with her, she’s a good one.

I want to talk about the scene where Carmilla says to Laura “it’s so beautiful the way you try”, because that was the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in my entire life. Not only was it important because Laura beats herself up for messing up most of the time, but also, it’s like as if Carmilla was saying “you’re still a hero in my eyes just by your efforts alone”. It’s like she is stating that even though Carmilla has been through absolute HELL, that Laura’s personality alone is good enough.

Favourite Sarah Urie selfies from her twitter

She has the most beautiful heart. She has the most amazing soul. Her brain is so brilliant. Her eyes alone could create world peace. Her laugh could make anyone the happiest person alive. Her smile could light up the darkest room. Everything about her is simply stunning. It’s impossible not to fall for her.

Eyes of The Beholder

So my wonderful friend Becca BLEW MY MIND today with this theory for Mystery Skulls Ghost Animated. That I knew I had to share to everyone! ( She doesn’t have a tumblr or she would!)

 It is pretty clear in the video that each of the main four have their own distinct color schemes, Lewis = Purple , Arthur = Orange, Vivi = Blue, and Mystery/Ben = Red. All of their attire matches as so.

Except two things…. Mystery and Vivi’s Glasses.

Hmmm… Where have we seen these colors before?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Vivi only has eyes for Lewis, she loves him. Hence why her glasses match his color.

And Mystery has his eyes on Arthur, it’s why when there was danger in the cave, he followed after Arthur.  Mystery is only around to protect Arthur, he’s there to protect Arthur. That is why he doesn’t save Lewis from being pushed, it’s not his priority. He was most likely more concerned with what was possessing Arthur.

 If we want to continue with this color theory on accessories, it also explains the colors of Lewis’ Heart. It starts as Orange because it’s filled for rage for Arthur, then turns blue when all he wanted was Vivi, his love.

MINDS BLOWN!

This is Miss Frankie or Frankie for short. She is a beautiful black Main Coon with big bright green eyes. In 2006 I rescued her from the streets of Mexico! Yes Frankie is a little Mexican kitty. She was around 2 months old and she is now 9. She has a very bright and cheeful spirit. She coexist with a dwarf bunny, a guinea pig and birds! Frankie loves to play and loves going outside for little bits at a time. She is also a fanatic of water bottle caps, pens and strings. And of course she is most excited to hear her food plate every morning and night. Unfortunatley on Friday night (8-7-15) she threw up her food then later on around 5 am she threw up again and every since then she has not eaten. Her spirit seems very down lately. She doesn’t play or move much. I took her to the vet and she noticed something strange with her tummy. She said it felt hard and tense. The vet ordered some medical procedures to be done and I do not have the funds to even come close to afford it. I am self emplyed and make handmade jewelry for a living. I am asking for anyone out there who could donate any amount! My goal is $2,000 and that should cover all of the medical procedures that were ordered along with anything she might need after all of the test come back in. It is crucial to raise this money ASAP before something bad goes wrong with Frankie. Every second counts. Everyone who donates will receive a cute little Thank You card and an update on Frankie! You can also donate directly by sending your donation to this email address vetranochris@gmail.com Thank you for reading and sharing and donating. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Please even $1 donations help so much!! Please share, do anything you can!
