It’s finally here. For my birthday girl @underthenorthstar.




Emer started wandering, completely absorbed by the beauty and wilderness of the place.


She could hear Ivar’s chariot behind her. Emer didn’t want to look at him. She was still angry. All she desired was to walk away from all the problems, melting into the ocean. The endless blue waves that didn’t care about humanity’s problems, it was like an immortal deity. She wondered how many stories it had witnessed. Lovers whose hearts were broken, mothers that lost their children by the terrible hand of war. Maybe the sea was made from their tears. What would be an explanation for why humans were so fascinated by the deep waters. It was like they were searching for the sorrow. Attracted by the suffering. Or maybe, they were all selkies, trying to get back to their origins in the bottom of the ocean.


They said if a woman shed seven tears into the sea, a male selkie would contact her. Emer had cried more than enough tears, but she didn’t want any other man in her life. It seemed to her they were the cause of her pain. Maybe she was not an unhappy woman in search of love from a being from another world. She might be a creature from the sea herself. She might have forgotten. Who stole my skin in this case? Forcing me to live among humans. Who stole me from myself? These questions didn’t leave her mind.


She longed to be one with the ocean she had never known. Her legs seemed to move of their own accord, they were leading her to the edge. Only this way she could be free.


Emer was in the edge, watching the waves crashing onto the shore, a lonely tear running down her cheek.


Ivar’s voice taking her away from her thoughts, “Come here, Emer. Let’s see the rest of the farm.”


She didn’t want to face him. He would know she was weak. A stupid and crying woman. Emer raised her hand to her face, cleaning her tears.


She looked back at him. He was offering his hand as an invitation. An almost kind smile playing on his lips. She thought he seemed even more gorgeous when he was relaxed.


She asked herself, “Why couldn’t it be always this way?”


“There is no space for me!”, she replied referring to his chariot. But, her question had a hidden meaning.

The Lord Of The Dans
Celtic Dreams

I absolutely adoooore this!~

This is the one song in my life that you can play and it doesn’t matter how irrationally pissed off I am, I will sit the fuck down and listen. It takes me back to a time in my life that I cherish so much<3 My uncle and I would play music like this and LOTR soundtracks and such while we were playing Magic: The Gathering or outside with his bow & arrow. It’s just such a wonderful, wonderful song.

Just listening to it makes me breathe and puts me in a calming, yet cheerful zen feeling. There’s nothing like it. Seriously.

“The [Champions League], make no mistake, is perhaps the finest exhibition of football on the planet. From Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo it plays host to the best players in the world, assembled by teams boasting budgets as large as that of many small nations. But that injection of funds, the disparity that afflicts the game, makes it a little more predictable with every year that passes. […] In a world where money dominates the sport and, more often than not, dictates results, the Libertadores keeps its romance alive long after the Champions League became a private party for Europe’s elites. The likes of Red Star, Steaua Bucharest, Ajax and Celtic can no longer dream of taking down the big boys, but for their counterparts across the Atlantic, nothing is impossible. x

I’m a painting lover, though I’m a bad rookie at it. Impressionism, Renaissance, Pre-Raphaelites and Barbizon School are my favorite genres. I love a lot more, mainly focused on watercolor and oil painting. 

I would appreciate any related supplement  to this list ლ ( ◕  ᗜ  ◕ ) ლ. 

Thanks to all I mentioned in this post, for sharing inspiring art.
