The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.
Watching Finding Nemo as a kid: “oh my gosh this is so cool they expressed marine life so well!”
Watching Finding Nemo as an adult aquarist/marine science student: “wow those corals would never be together in nature. Oh my god occelaris clownfish don’t live in condylactis anemones. Jesus no that’s not how this works. Oh my god this movie grossly un-educates people on what marine fish keeping is like. No no no those fish would never be in that tank together. That tank is way too small for a porcupine puffer. The fuck you would never have gravel in that tank. Oh my god I can’t imagine how many fish died from misinformed parents buying their children marine fish/nemos after seeing this movie.”
This unedited photo of a strange cloud over Madeira island has been dubbed ‘The Hand of God’. Meteorologists say it’s not an uncommon formation, but this one was enhanced by the light of the rising sun and really good timing.
Looking at all my old art reminded me how many damn characters I use to have, some of them I legit still love. This is Millefiori (it means ‘one thousand flowers’ in Italian), the god of flowers and sweet scents ~ a lion with a flower mane is hardly original, but I like the idea of nature gods that are pretty but can also rip your chest cavity open.
