beauty in weird places

Sliding Rock, Cashiers NC

The rocks are slippery with moss and allow people to slide to the bottom effortlessly. But in the middle of the rock are these holes that have no apparent bottom. You slide into them and can feel the walls around you go down, but no matter how far down you go you can’t reach the bottom. It’s really weird. Definitely a @sixpenceee level of weird.

Petrifying Well, Mother Shipton’s Cave, North Yorkshire

Mother Shipton, born Ursula Southeil, was a famous English prophetess, soothsayer and was known as a witch. She was born in 1488 in a cave beside the petrifying well - the water cascades from the rocks carrying with it a high mineral content, turning any items hung beneath it ‘to stone’

The Lakes of Kelimutu - Indonesia

The lakes of Kelimutu are three crater lakes which change colors(black, blue, green, and red) overtime due to volcanic activity that started millions of years ago.

Locals consider this place to be sacred. They believe that the lakes change colors according to the souls of the dead that end up there. The east lake is also called “tiwu ata polo” or the lake for evil spirits, while the center lake is known as “tiwu nua muri koo fai” or the lake for young souls, while the west lake is called “tiwu ata mbupu” or the lake for the souls of the elderly and wise people.

the wall and beyond;
               "beyond the wall the monsters live, the giants and the ghouls, the stalking shadows and the dead that walk… but they cannot pass so long as the wall stands strong and the men of the night’s watch are true.“

Hey! I love your blog and I was wondering what the goth state of mind is, or what's your personal take on it. I'm deeply trying to become goth and get into it but to be completely honest I'm still new and still trying to understand everything. Sorry for the long ask!

Hey sure I love to give my take on it. But first of all “trying to become goth” isn’t really a thing. It’s not something you just try to be, but rather something you already are and suits your personality and interests. But that’s just my opinion. The goth mind set for me is just in general the celebration of the weird and unusual. Finding beauty in places other people wouldn’t look to find beauty. It also values independence, uniqueness and art.

Tumblr is a weird place, full of cat fights and self-rightousness.  I really don’t like Bucky Barnes, (I’m a Tony girl) but I really like my friend @cattraine  , who does. So for her, I present some Awesome Art pressies.  :)  Can’t we all just chill?  It’s fandom, for God’s sake.

Yesterday a deaf group came in and I feel awful cause I greeted them and assumed they were ignoring me but when I waved to one when he passed the register and we had eye contact I began to speak and he signed, and I was just like ‘oh sorry.’
But then he came up later with his phone and it said 'this place is so beautiful and weird we love it’ and I got so excited! I didn’t have my phone with me and didn’t wanna write shit out so I just smiled and pointed to the email list and gave him a card with our website and he waved when they left it was a very cute and genuine reaction I hope i didn’t insult them
