I know this image is supposed to be pro-Sanders for President, but hear me out: all these pop culture icons avoided leadership positions because they knew they could do more meaningful work outside the governing political system (and feared being corrupted by the power of politics). Dumbledore turned down the Minister of Magic position on multiple occasions, Gandalf intentionally stayed away from government and resisted the power of the One Ring, and Obi-Wan was a member of the Jedi Knights- the politically neutral guardians of peace in the galaxy.
That is sort of how I feel about Bernie Sanders. Even if he doesn’t win the nomination, he isn’t going anywhere- and shouldn’t. His massive influence will live on.
I have so much appreciation for the look in his eyes here. It’s different to any other expression I’ve ever seen Kanan give ANYONE in the series so far. That is the most earnest loving look I’ve ever seen any character give, honestly. Look how proud he is of Ezra. The results of their bonding can really be seen here when you compare to the first time they met: when Ezra sped away with his cargo and Kanan giving him a ‘not bad’ smirk.
But this look is something else entirely. It’s as if he’s seen Ezra grow up from the tiny little spacerunt he is into this maturing little blueberry he is now. I think this is the look of ‘yes, my precious blueberry’ that we all have when we look at Ezra. This look.
We used to come here for school retreat. We would swim to that island every day; I love the water. We used to lie out on the sand and let the sun dry us and try to guess the names of the birds singing.
You just need to know this is the first time I’ve ever done this without looking for an exit row.
And I’m pretty sure my seat can’t float but I’ve already fallen from the sky for you,
Already said no to the parachute,
Already told my mother you curse like a sailor and you love like the war
is finally over and you have just come home and you are running down
the dock in the harbor and you’re screaming my name.
You’re screaming “honey”
and I’m screaming “don’t trip”
and you’re screaming “honey honey”
and I’m screaming “baby don’t fall down”
I am running for your red lips
I am running for your red heart
With my red heart
Red as a Mississippi sunset
[this reminds me of Bucky and Steve. poem by Andrea Gibson. someone make a gif-set of it?]
