Playing Outside

Going outside to play is wonderful. You get some fresh air, some vitamin D, and a nice change of scenery from your home. Here’s a list of fun things to do outside for Littles and (if you have one) your caregivers.

- Go to a playground

- Jump in puddles after it rains

- Have a picnic with your stuffies or toys

- Go crawdad fishing

- Make snow angels

- If you live somewhere mountainy, go for a hike

- If not, take a walk around a lake or somewhere pretty

- Jump into piles of leaves

- Build a snow fort

- Go to an art walk

- Visit a farmers market

- Play hop scotch

- Build a snowman

- Dance in the rain

- Fly a kite

- Chalk

- Blow bubbles

if this is to end in fire
then we should all burn together
watch the flames burn high
into the night

and if we should die tonight
then we should all die together
raise a glass of wine
for the last time

now I see fire
inside the mountain
I see fire 
burning the trees
and I see fire
hollowing souls
I see fire
bloodin the breeze

and I hope that you remember me

justalittlebitspecial  asked:

Could you tell me some of the gay parts in the radio drama?

Well generally the whole thing is a very brokeback mountainy scene considering the close quarters and the cold, that and Luke is hurt and Han is fussing over him and is genuinely worried about him and affectionately takes care of him. And when they bicker it’s like classic Han caring about someone and not being able to express it.

Some particularly gay and blessed exchanges though:

PEACE TO THE MOUNTAIN

I learned to keep quiet

How to keep my distance

Afraid to let strangers in

How to keep my secrets

Did I ever have an idea of what this should’ve been?

An unhappy accident longing for an origin


So, let me go where no one can follow

Lost with my conscience

Please bury me honest

The songs drones

I drink myself hollow

Regrets grow regardless

Please bury me honest

I promise I’ll go in peace

I promise I’ll go in peace

When I’m free


Rejected to the brink

Only so much I can change

An artist I wish I could’ve made

Am I irrelevant?

Or will I get a chance to change

the colors permanent?


Let me go where no one can follow

Lost with my conscience

Please, baby, bury me honest

The songs drones

I drink myself hollow

Regrets grow regardless

Please bury me honest

I promise I’ll go in peace

I promise I’ll go in peace

When I’m free


Peace to the mountain

Girl, I’m gonna go, go

So let me go where no one can follow

Lost with my conscience

Please bury me honest

The songs drones

I drink myself hollow

Regrets grow regardless

Please bury me honest

I promise I’ll go in peace

When I’m free

Journey to Haven Theory!!!

We know that Haven Academy is located in the kingdom of Mistral, home of Teams ABRN and SSSN (Yay!). Mistral is located on the east end of the Remnant and shares the name with the mistral wind, a strong and cold wind that blows through the Rhone Valley. We know from the topographical representation of Remnant Mistral is located in a mountainy area of the world. But Qrow states that he ventured in the swamps west of Mistral. The geography of this place is still up in the air, but there’s something more concrete to dissect. The culture and people!!!

Back in Volume 2, when Ozpin gave his speech to the contenders of the Vytal Festival Tournament, we saw the uniforms of the students of Haven. It looks somewhat militaristic in comparison to Beacon’s uniforms. They don’t have open shirts that reveal lace bows or ties, nor do the female students wear pants like Atlas Academy students. A more prominent accessory is the white armband. This form of armband is known as a brassard. Typically, they are somewhat affiliated with military, but not directly military itself.

When it comes to Mistral’s international representation, they are the color blue. As seen in the first World of Remnant for volume three. The blue guy over Mistral has a specific weapon can be seen as one of two things. Either it’s a handful of daggers or a handful of crystals. Hmm, where have we seen crystals before? Oh yeah! Cinder Fall!! People from Mistral might be pretty adept to the usage of dust or ranged tactics. But there’s more to this blue color. Amity Colosseum was built out of a combined effort of the four kingdoms. Mistral’s portion is the blue piece constructed of arches that serves as the entrance. Mistral may be known for architecture, and that would look pretty sweet with the possible mountain location of Haven.

But I think the most important part about Mistral is the people that we see coming from there. Aside from people like Cinder, we have a majority of Team SSSN and, presumably, all of Team ABRN. Mistral seems to take a lot from the eastern world. Nadir has an Arabic name, Japanese surname and Middle Eastern appearance. Arslan has a Turkish name and what I think is a Tai Chi fighting. Bolin has a Chinese first name and Japanese surname. And Sage’s surname is Hindu. Even Reese and Neptune have tanned skin and Greco-Roman names that allude to the Mediterranean area.

The feel of Mistral seems to pull from Southern Asia fighting, Middle Eastern appearance and Greco-Roman architecture. That mix would lead to an exciting fourth volume to look forward to whenever Team RNJR reaches Mistral.

listen so yesterday I was in my apt for a few hours and feeling just alright but as soon as I went outside in the chilly mountainy smell with overcast skies my heart was at so much peace. don’t forget how powerful just appreciating the outdoors can be even for like a minute

ღ god of the mountain

I love yamagami toudou and I love manatou so here’s both omfg

Don't Walk Away
Willo
Don't Walk Away

Don’t Walk Away - Willo

You left me
But I understand
You haunt me
The things that you said
You told me you loved me, but you didn’t use words
Your eyes said enough, your words went unheard
You warned me, ‘love is weakness’, were the words that you said
But I didn’t listen and now here I am
 
Help me
Carry this weight
Hold me
And make it all okay
Just hold me close, don’t let me go
Not this time
Don’t walk out of my life
 
Your eyes
Filling up with tears
I remember it clearly, you were standing nearme
Letting go of your fears
But your eyes
Before you turned around
Heartbroken and guilty, staring right at me
Cause you sold what you found
 
Help me
Carry this weight
Hold me
And make it all okay
Just hold me close, don’t let me go
Not this time
Don’t walk out of my life
 
You left me on that mountain
I tried to hate you but I couldn’t
And now I am wandering on my own
I hope to find you though I shouldn’t
You left me on that mountain
I tried to hate you but I couldn’t
And now I am wandering all alone
I want to find you though I know I shouldn’t
 
Help me
Carry this weight
Hold me
And make it all okay
Just hold me close, don’t let me go
Not this time
Don’t walk out of my life

Results of the stream!

I was thinking about what blu would look like in XIV, and since XI went the desert-y exotic way, I tried to do something snowy-mountainy… and somewhere along the road, when I wondered what would the weapon be (I wanted a horn at first), I decided to just huge this gigantic scard (I know, it has a Journey feel to it)

I think I’ll reuse it/work on it some more :3

The Mountain

I’ve seen some great art of the new Godzilla that really make the most of the finer details of the new design, and while I was making this today I felt like I was shooting myself in the foot by going purely for the silhouette. Godzilla has one of the very best silhouettes in pop culture though and I knew as soon as I saw the trailer that I wanted to draw something that took a step back and focused on that shape towering over the landscape. Shots in that trailer show a Godzilla so big it’s as lonely as it is awe-inspiring. Hopefully I captured those sensations, one version to focus on the isolation, and one in red for that immediate 50% more ominous bonus.

The Mountainy SkyScapes, by jessemartineau

Sometimes I wish my memory was a bit better. In all fairness it isn’t that great due to the overwhelming thoughts and emotions I typically have day to day… Like when I am hungry, or thirsty, or sleepy, or itchy, how can one concentrate, let alone remember things with urges like these!?!? Now granted I guess others can remember stuff with the same feelings, so I’m not sure where that leaves me… I’ll just blame it on being “artistic”, seems that’s a pretty accepted cop out… Here is a stump.
