I plan to dance for you today. So, if you don’t come, I’ll probably be lonely. To me, ‘people’ are you and only you. That’s why you must come.”

Kupala Night (21/22 June) - Slavic Celebration of  summer solstice

Girls may float wreaths of flowers (often lit with candles) on rivers, and would attempt to gain foresight into their relationship fortunes from the flow patterns of the flowers on the river. Men may attempt to capture the wreaths, in the hope of capturing the interest of the woman who floated the wreath. (via Wikipedia)

NEWSHOUR COLUMN: How avocado mania drives climate change and crime

Despite being a staple of Mexican diets for thousands of years, the avocado has enjoyed a global surge in popularity over the last few years.

But like with all great booms, there are unexpected consequences. First, there’s climate change. According to Newsweek, a small plot of avocado trees can generate up to $500,000 a year. As more and more Mexicans seek to profit from global demand, they have been destroying forests to plant avocado trees. Vast swaths of pine and fir trees are being illegally cut down. The deforestation has already impacted the monarch butterfly and water flow patterns.

Second, the combination of strong demand, high prices and regular disruptions to supply has generated a strong incentive to traffic in avocados. The economics have also attracted some nefarious actors, leading to gang warfare in the Michoacán state of Mexico. It’s estimated that 80 percent of the avocados consumed in the United States are from this area, and because of the violence the business has generated, some now refer to fruit from the state as “blood avocados.”

And suddenly the drugs hit, and everything was art. Full of vivid color. The world was in patterns that flowed on forever. Every particle was connected and I could see them interchange, every soul on those steps, all their atoms dancing together. With a smile spread so wide it could make the ocean jealous, it was then that I realized the world loved me.

And I loved it back.

The notion that reality is to be understood as a process is an ancient one, going back at least to Heraclitus, who said that “everything flows”. The best image of process is perhaps that of the flowing stream, whose substance is never the same. In this stream, one may see an ever-changing pattern of vortices, ripples, waves, splashes…which evidently have no independent existence as such.

Kupala Night - old Slavic celebration. It relates to summer solstice. Many of the rites related to this holiday within Slavic religious beliefs, due to the ancient Kupala rites, are connected with the role of water in fertility and ritual purification. On Kupala day, young people jump over the flames of bonfires in a ritual test of bravery and faith. The failure of a couple in love to complete the jump while holding hands is a sign of their destined separation. Girls may float wreaths of flowers (often lit with candles) on rivers, and would attempt to gain foresight into their relationship fortunes from the flow patterns of the flowers on the river. Men may attempt to capture the wreaths, in the hope of capturing the interest of the woman who floated the wreath.

Most people: this character isn't particularly choosy when it comes to music, anything with a catchy rhythm will suit them YanDev: Music = patterns, patterns = blood flow, blood flow = emotion and arousal which are never activated in Ayano's brain so basically any and all music makes her moist because science

As you put on your makeup… the mirror begins to flow into a pattern… so easy to relax and watch the pattern… after all good girls want to be pretty… want to look deeper… good girls love to relax and be made up… maybe a little extra makeup would not hurt… a little more lip gloss would guarantee that when you were done… there would be a ring around his nice hard shaft… it would be nice to leave your mark

Batfamily head-cannon: Tim can draw really well and when he's working late on a case he doodles to keep himself awake?

He draws mindless doodles like spiral patterns and flowing strands that look suspiciously similar to Stephanie’s hair, but sometimes when he’s really spacey after two hours he’ll blink and realize that he drew a detailed portrait of Bruce’s scowl and gets kind of spooked. 

This view of Jupiter shows the giant planet’s cloud tops taken by the Pioneer 10 spacecraft as it flew past Jupiter. This view was taken from 2,695,000 kilometers (1,842,451 miles) away. It shows the 25,000 mile long Great Red Spot, which is large enough to swallow up several Earths. Individual cloud formations are visible in some detail. The bright zones appear to become split up into the detailed flow patterns of Jupiter’s atmosphere and clouds. The area surrounding the Spot in the bright South Tropical Zone, suggests a flow pattern about the Spot which is bulged toward the north by the Spot. The Spot may be a gigantic “permanent hurricane.” The gigantic cloud swirls are thousands or more miles across. Pioneer 10 flew past Jupiter in December 1974 and flew past the orbit of Pluto in 1987. A sister spacecraft, Pioneer 11 reached Jupiter in December 1975. The Pioneer Project was managed by NASA’s Ames Research Center, Mountain View, Calafornia. The spacecraft was built by TRW Systems.
