a step to the sun

[LYRICS] 네시 (4 O'CLOCK) by RM & V

Korean

어느 날 달에게
길고긴 편지를 썼어
너보다 환하진 않지만
작은 촛불을 켰어

어스름한 공원에
노래하는 이름모를 새
Where are you
Oh you

왜 울고 있는지
여긴 나와 너 뿐인데
Me and you
Oh you

깊은 밤을 따라서
너의 노랫소리가
한 걸음씩 두 걸음씩
붉은 아침을 데려와

새벽은 지나가고
저 달이 잠에 들면
함께했던 푸른빛이
사라져

오늘도 난 적당히 살아가
발맞춰 적당히 닳아가
태양은 숨이 막히고
세상은 날 발가벗겨놔
난 어쩔 수 없이 별 수 없이
달빛 아래 흩어진 나를 줍고 있어
I call you moonchild
우린 달의 아이
새벽의 찬 숨을 쉬네
Yes we’re livin and dyin
at the same time
But 지금은 눈 떠도 돼
그 어느 영화처럼 그 대사처럼
달빛 속에선 온 세상이 푸르니까

어스름한 공원에
노래하는 이름모를 새
Where are you
Oh you

왜 울고 있는지
여긴 나와 너 뿐인데
Me and you
Oh you

깊은 밤을 따라서
너의 노랫소리가
한 걸음씩 두 걸음씩
붉은 아침을 데려와

새벽은 지나가고
저 달이 잠에 들면
함께했던 푸른빛이
사라져

깊은 밤을 따라서
너의 노랫소리가
한 걸음씩 두 걸음씩
붉은 아침을 데려와

새벽은 지나가고
저 달이 잠에 들면
함께했던 푸른빛이
사라져

English

I wrote a long letter
to the moon one day
It isn’t brighter than you but
I lit a small candle

The nameless bird that sings
in the park at dawn
Where are you
Oh you

Why are you crying
It’s only me and you here
Me and you
Oh you

Your singing voice,
That follows deep into the night,
brings the scarlet morning
One step, then another step

Dawn passes by and
When that moon falls asleep,
then the blue light that was with me
disappears

Today, too, I go on living just enough
Keeping in step, wearing my feet out just enough
The sun makes me breathless
The world has stripped me of all I have
Without a choice, with no other alternative,
Under the moonlight I am picking up my scattered self
I call you moonchild
We are the children of the moon
We draw breath from the cold air of dawn
Yes we’re livin and dyin
at the same time
But right now it’s alright to open your eyes
Because like any movie, like any dialogue (from a movie)
The whole world is blue under the moonlight

The nameless bird that sings
in the park at dawn
Where are you
Oh you

Why are you crying
It’s only you and me here
Me and you
Oh you

Your singing voice,
That follows deep into the night,
brings the scarlet morning
One step, then another step

Dawn passes by and
When that moon falls asleep,
then the blue light that was with me
disappears

Your singing voice,
That follows deep into the night,
brings the scarlet morning
One step, then another step

Dawn passes by and
When that moon falls asleep,
then the blue light that was with me
disappears

One day, I wrote a long, long letter
To the moon
It’s not as bright as you are
But it lighted up a small candle light

The nameless bird
Singing in the dusky park
Where are you
Oh you

Why are you crying
It’s just me and you here
Me and you
Oh you

With the deep night
Your voice singing
And step by step
Bringing in the crimson morning

When the dawn passes
When the moon falls asleep
The blue light that was once with me
Will go away

Another day living my life moderately
Keeping my step, moving on moderately with no strength
The sun suffocates me
And the world strips me off all I have
I can’t do anything
But collecting the scattered bits of me under the moonlight
I call you moonchild
We are children of the moon
Inhaling the cold breath of the dawn
Yes we’re livin and dyin
At the same time
But you can open your eyes now
Because like the dialogue in a movie
In that moonlight the whole world is blue

The nameless bird
Singing in the dusky park
Where are you
Oh you

Why are you crying
It’s just me and you here
Me and you
Oh you

With the deep night
Your voice singing
And step by step
Bringing in the crimson morning

When the dawn passes
When the moon falls asleep
The blue light that was once with me
Will go away

Pi Guides the Way

It may be irrational but pi plays an important role in the everyday work of scientists at NASA. 

What Is Pi ?

Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. It is also an irrational number, meaning its decimal representation never ends and it never repeats. Pi has been calculated to more than one trillion digits, 

Why March 14?

March 14 marks the yearly celebration of the mathematical constant pi. More than just a number for mathematicians, pi has all sorts of applications in the real world, including on our missions. And as a holiday that encourages more than a little creativity – whether it’s making pi-themed pies or reciting from memory as many of the never-ending decimals of pi as possible (the record is 70,030 digits).

While 3.14 is often a precise enough approximation, hence the celebration occurring on March 14, or 3/14 (when written in standard U.S.  month/day format), the first known celebration occurred in 1988, and in 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution designating March 14 as Pi Day and encouraging teachers and students to celebrate the day with activities that teach students about pi.

5 Ways We Use Pi at NASA

Below are some ways scientists and engineers used pi.

Keeping Spacecraft Chugging Along

Propulsion engineers use pi to determine the volume and surface area of propellant tanks. It’s how they size tanks and determine liquid propellant volume to keep spacecraft going and making new discoveries. 

Getting New Perspectives on Saturn

A technique called pi transfer uses the gravity of Titan’s moon, Titan, to alter the orbit of the Cassini spacecraft so it can obtain different perspectives of the ringed planet.

Learning the Composition of Asteroids

Using pi and the asteroid’s mass, scientists can calculate the density of an asteroid and learn what it’s made of–ice, iron, rock, etc.

Measuring Craters

knowing the circumference, diameter and surface area of a crater can tell scientists a lot about the asteroid or meteor that may have carved it out.

Determining the Size of Exoplanets

Exoplanets are planets that orbit suns other than our own and scientists use pi to search for them. The first step is determining how much the light curve of a planet’s sun dims when a suspected planets passes in front of it.

The Signs As Colors

Aries: the cool blue of the morning becoming sky blue as the sun rises
Taurus: the opulent purity of a white pearl fresh from the ocean
Gemini: the inviting pink of a nursery for a baby fresh out of the maternity ward
Cancer: the soft taupe of faux fur around a set of silk-gloved arms
Leo: the bright yellow spots in your eyelids the blinding sun leaves when you step outside and rub your eyes
Virgo: the rich brown of the drying earth around crops ready for harvesting
Libra: the pastel orange glow around the sun as it sets in the west 
Scorpio: the angry blood red on the cheeks of someone who is painfully embarrassed 
Sagittarius: the deep purple of a royal cloak rustling in the breeze 
Capricorn: the shining bit of lead gray at the tip of a freshly sharpened pencil
Aquarius: the electric green in circuits that light up a neon sign 
Pisces: the near-black of a choppy, glistening sea you had never seen before

Describe what it feels like to be in love

Being in love feels like the warmth that touches your skin the second you step from the shade into the sun. It’s equivalent to the feeling of safety you get when you walk into your house after being out in a storm. But it’s also the feeling you get right before the drop of a roller coaster, the feeling of excitement and the rush. Being in love is a rush but it’s also calm. It’s the feeling of home but it’s also the feeling of adventure. Being in love feels like the uncertainty of a brand new day but also like the calm at the end of that day. Being in love can feel confusing and scary, but it also feels right.

Aisle One Aisle Two

Your apartment was like a ghost town. The emptiness echoed every time you stepped foot in the sad space. His shoes were missing by the front door. Your keys were never on the side table. There was evidence that people lived there. Ramen packets in the trash. Used coffee cups on the sink. But no one had really been around for two weeks.

Two weeks. This was the longest you had gone without speaking to Hoseok, yet alone seeing him. The fight at Yoongi’s was the worst you ever had. His sharp tongue dug wounds that even stitches couldn’t heal. He had been keeping himself occupied at Yoongi’s or the dance studio. Your heart sank into your chest anytime you came home and heard the washing machine running, only to find that the person who was wearing them was nowhere to be found.

A small part of you enjoyed the quiet. You were able to spread all your materials out on the coffee table. Bags of chips and half empty iced lattes were littered in between stacks of highlighted notes. He wasn’t there to yell at you when you fell asleep face first on your microbiology homework, the lines of the pages leaving imprints on your cheeks.

You did miss him. The two of you had been friends for years. But this time it was not your turn to say sorry. If Hoseok wanted things to go back to normal, he would have to swallow his large amount of pride and apologize.

But you had never heard Hoseok apologize in his life.

Sns last day !! Have some self indulgent dance au~

Things to think about

-The guitar riff during sincerely me when Ben goes “I also miss our talks”

-The chorus picking up in waving through a window at the end when he goes from “will I ever make a sound” to the chorus again

-“HEY HEY HEY” in sincerely me

-Ben’s vibrato

-Ben’s giggle in For Forever

-The tone of voice when he says “he’s come to get me”

-His awkwardness in if I could tell her when she starts to leave “I’m just trying to remember the best ones”

-“you looked really pretty- uh I mean it looked pretty cool”

-Basically all the emotions in words fail like Jesus christ belt your heart out but be careful of your vocal chords

-The fact they actually had Heidi be a mom in so big/so small cuz she’s singing to him on the couch and holding him, they’re weren’t destroying that link because he’s supposed to be a senior in high school, it just solidifies the fact that he’s vulnerable and he will always be his mom’s son, her little boy who wondered if there was a truck that was gonna take his mom away too

-In words fail when it backs back up into waving through a window Jesus christ that kills me everytime

-Just the “No, I’d rather pretend I’m something better than
These broken parts
Pretend I’m something other than
This mess that I am
‘Cause then I don’t have to look at it
And no one gets to look at it
No, no one can really see” kills me everytime

-When Ben belts out the word face in for forever

-When he sings step into the sun at the end of words fail

-Also when he sings “I know” in a words fail just mmm good

-Ben singing the “Stop it, stop it! Just let me off!” bit in Good For You

-“right there, right there, riiIIIGHT theerree” in words fail, just fills me with emotions

Good stuff

                                                  How to Open the Veil


The Veil is what separates our physical realm from the spirit world. By opening it, we’re able to communicate more freely with spirits. Essentially, you’ll be making a door and opening it in order to reach the spirit realm. 

Disclaimer: I’m not an expert at this, please don’t take my word as the final say. I just started practicing this technique and was taught by a close friend. Always be safe when you practice because if you’re not careful, you can get into some shit. I’m writing this post by popular demand. 


STEP 1: BE SAFE. The picture above is a little preview of the layout I used in my own dorm room. It’s hard to see, but I first drew a chalk circle and sprinkled black salt all along the edges of said circle. I also put four crystals at each end to mark it. Why do I have so much shit everywhere?? Because I don’t want anything to come through the door I created and cause problems. This circle keeps unwanted spirits out. (Granted, you don’t have to use as many things as I did. I find that a physical circle is just easier to visualize.) You can also use candles or anything else that works for you!

STEP 2: MARK THE DOOR. I used sun and moon candle holders with electric candles in them (since I live in a dorm and can’t use real candles). I set them apart from each other, like I was making, well, a door. Then I used some Super-Moon water to draw a line between the two candle holders to amplify my energy. Finally, I also sprinkled a line of black salt to stop unwanted and harmful spirits from coming through the door. 

STEP 3: RELAX. Get into the state of mind you need to be in to do witchy stuff. Meditation, grounding, singing–whatever you need to do to access your energy. 

STEP 4: STRETCH YOUR ENERGY. Whenever you feel ready, slowly pool energy into you palms. Then push it through the marked entrance where your door is going to be, imagining it as a thread, string, or cord connecting to the spirit realm. This might be difficult, especially if the veil isn’t exactly thin where you’re at. You may feel your energy bounce back, or that you’re hitting a wall. If you do, don’t worry! You can always pull back, gather your energy, and try again. 

STEP 5: CREATE A BRIDGE. You’ll know the moment when your energy connects to the spirit realm. It feels different for every person–for me, it’s almost like this tug in my gut and the feeling of a thread connecting my hands and body to something else. Once you feel that, it’s really up to you on how you want to create the bridge! For me, what works best is when I imagine myself walking across the thread of my energy towards the spirit realm. As I walk, my energy begins to create the bridge. There might be another door on the other side once you cross the bridge (it’s really up to how you visualize). If there is, open it. 

STEP 6: OPEN THE DOOR. Once you’ve made the bridge, feel and hold on to that connection. Then, imagine a door leading to the bridge through the physical boundaries you created earlier. This door can look however you like–whatever’s easiest for you to imagine! Then, use your energy to pry open the door. After that…

Congrats! You’ve successfully opened a door to the spirit realm! You should be able to feel the difference in energies. It’s kind of hard to explain how it feels–almost like this vast, empty expanse and the chattering of lots of different spirits floating around. 

When you’re done…

CLOSE THE DOOR. If you invited any spirits in to chat, say goodbye to the spirit(s) that you communicated with and ask them to leave. Make sure they leave before you close the door. If they refuse to, you might have to force them via your own energy (obviously, this is in the worst of situations. Try not to be rude if possible!). We’ve had to do this before and it’s not the most pleasant thing (haha). 

To close the door, pull your energy out from the spirit realm. Imagine that bridge you created crumbling, until you can no longer feel that connection. Once you’re out, close the door, seal it up, and do anything else that feels necessary in order to break the opening. For me, I usually make a breaking motion with my hands to signify the cut-off connection. You can chant or say an incantation if you like as well. This is important, because you definitely don’t want to leave a door open for spirit to come through willy nilly!  


                                                          Other Info

  • PLEASE BE CAREFUL!! If you’re not cautious, some bad spirits might be able to get through and that’s never fun. If possible, try this first with someone else (preferably someone who knows more of what they’re doing). If you can’t, make sure you have multiple backups, wards, and other witchy things to keep bad spirits at bay. 
  • If you want to invite a spirit to chat, it’s probably a good idea to have an offering around, just to be polite. Tarot cards, pendulums, etc. are pretty awesome tools to use if you’re not great at telepathic communication!
  • Take everything spirits say with a grain of salt. They can lie just like people. 

I hope this was helpful to those that asked! If anyone wants to add anything, feel free to. I’m by no means an expert, so if someone wants to add their expertise advise please do! If something doesn’t feel right, go with your gut–never do something you’re not comfortable with. 

Be safe, fellow spirit workers and witches!

Mythology behind the Sun
There are countless of versions of how the Sun came to be in astrology, but most commonly known and told is that of the Greeks. Helios, seen as the Sun God, would ride on a golden chariot across the sunset making his way home everyday. He is often associated with Apollo. Apollo is not only God of Music, but also God of Sun and Light (and many more).

The Sun in Astrology
The only way we identify ourselves, normally, is through our Star sign aka our Sun sign. It’s who we are when we are first getting to know someone since it’s our most basic personality. It’s purely our sense of self. On a deeper level, some argue that the Sun sign is your life purpose. This makes sense since our Sun sign is who we are at our very best. But in order to become our “very best”, we must accept ourselves for who we are and work with that. Trying to be someone you are not only confuses your life’s purpose and you are not staying true to yourself. You are not showing your Sun sign at its best, but only a reflection of what you want it to be.

Daddy Drabbles #8

- Bucky gets first aid after a mission - Based off this

Bucky sighs a heavy sigh of relief when he sees his house approaching from the car window. He turns to Steve who is writing notes in his notebook as a post-mission ritual. He had ridden home with Bucky as a promise to you, to bring your husband back in one piece. The car stops in front of the house and they both thank the driver. With heavy tired steps they open the creaking gate to your house, the early morning sun beating down on their exhausted bodies as they walk to the door. Before they can reach the door you’re barrelling down the path straight into Bucky’s arms without a word. He catches you in his strong arms a soft groan involuntarily escaping his lips. “My ribs” he wheezes out. You instantly pull away as if you’d been burnt.

“Sorry, sorry” you pull away, in the eagerness to see your husband you had forgotten the potential for injuries. Bucky smiles through the pain as you survey him. “How bad?” it was almost ritualistic for you to ask after every mission.

“Three cracked ribs, stitches on my neck and thigh and a slight concussion, not to mention cuts and bruises just about everywhere” Bucky lists off his injuries and the worry clouds your face. “I’ll be right as rain tomorrow” Bucky says as he pulls you back to him with a cocky smile wanting to hold you in his arms. You often forgot your husband and his best friend had advanced healing and your worry was frivolous in most cases.

Mood: Sun, smoking a cigarette as she steps over Lito laying in the street, rolling her eyes, so fucking done with Lito’s melodrama

Also mood: Lito, wearing a onesie, tear stained eyes looking at Sun with the most pitifully dramatic face, sobbing and flopping onto the bed, cat pillows falling on top of him

One Small Step

Though you’re feeling down show kindness to all
keep peace in your heart and faith in your prayers 
smile, take one small step, then take one more
remember someone loves you and somebody cares 
even while this day may be filled with darkness
these moments are never as bleak as they seem
and when tomorrow’s sun invites you to awaken
you’ll see yesterday was only an empty bad dream
