candle in the wind

Animation of: ‘Starry Night’ by Alex Ruiz
 Ruiz wanted to capture what it might have been like on that starry night. Van Gogh (the figure in the painting) is seen “looking up at the night sky…probably in awe, as he wondered how he would capture the beauty he saw.”

Elton John | “Candle In The Wind”

Elton and Bernie Taupin wrote this song for Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean) in 1973, 11 years after her death.

Happy Birthday, Norma.

“Goodbye, Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that "Marilyn was found in the nude”.

Goodbye, Norma Jean
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something as more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe.“

  • Clarke: *Sigh* Fine, Candle in the Wind it is. But I swear, if you show up for the ceremony in a dress made of candles I am leaving you.
  • Lexa: That is just silly, Clarke. I would never do that.
  • Clarke: Hmmmm....
  • *Clarke leaves*
  • Lexa: Indra, abort the candle dress. I repeat, abort the candle dress.
  • Indra: Oh thank god.

I Call Upon 15 Year Old Me To Speak On 16 Year Old Me’s Behalf

Studies have shown that people are lighter when they wake up then when they were when they went to sleep.
Not me.
I wake up the exact same: wiping the tears and crust from my eyes like windshield wipers, walking to the bathroom and take a good, long, wholesome look at myself in the large mirror that might as well take up the top half of the wall.
I can see myself staring at you, staring your vibrant eyes at a fairy tale reality, with your heart melting like a candle, not in the wind, but on the sunset. 
A sunset I’d build just so I can see its beauty and radiance by looking at your smile. 
I’m scared to see you.
My eyes fight with everything they’ve got and everything I can supply to tread water and keep themselves above the water level.

Witchcraft stickers for the witchy/Wiccan lifestyle! Here we have a black cat, salt with rosemary and sage, black candles, the three goddess moon, quartz cluster, a pentagram moon, and a cauldron!
These can go on most surfaces. Your phone, a glass bottle/jar, a mirror, tablet, 3DS, Book of Shadows, a Grimoire, or book covers.
Super fun, cute, and just the right type of aesthetic.
All of these have a protective laminate, but I would encourage to keep away from water spirits!
Blessed be!
