I marched for so many reasons. I mean, I am a Cuban-American bisexual woman, so at the end of the day, I was all of the things that were being resisted. I marched for reproductive health, I marched for the LGBTQ community, I marched for myself, I marched for my family, I marched for friends, I marched for women in general. I feel like there is such a power to our voice and such a power within ourselves that we have yet to fully reach the potential of, and I just thought it was so important. I knew that I wanted to be at the capital. This was a historic moment that I needed to be part of, because I am so incredibly passionate about every single one. I marched for planned parenthood, I marched for the sake of people understanding that their rights are important and that they’re valuable, and that they are valuable. And that no matter who you are or where you come from, or what gender, race, religion, whatever the fuck label you put on yourself, or they’ve put on you, you matter and your voice is important.

Quick fact. Ready?
Our very mitochondria, the power houses of our cells, have its own specific set of DNA known as mtDNA. This genetic material is different from all other cells in which it is only inherited from our mothers, not our fathers.

How very strange.

As there is little foolish wand-waving here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic. I don’t expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through the human veins, bewitching the minds, ensnaring the senses… I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even stopper death - if you aren’t as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach.

“What’s so lovely about Wonder Woman is yes, she has the strength and power of a goddess, but she has the heart and mind of a human. So I play her as I think a woman like me would act in the situations she’s going through. You treat her as a normal woman who happens to be fantastic and almighty.” - Gal Gadot

there’s like 2 eps left and i’ll admit a very small smart of me is still hoping that they let bamon happen at like, the very end. the build up is there, they just need to follow through. the satisfying thing about it happening in the finale is that the writers can’t fuck it up after that, you know? they can walk off into the sunset together, bickering, and smiling at each other in that way they do, and i can fill in the rest of the blanks without the writers twisting it up unnecessarily

Until then I had thought each book spoke of the things, human or divine, that lie outside books. Now I realized that not infrequently books speak of books: it is as if they spoke among themselves. In the light of this reflection, the library seemed all the more disturbing to me. It was then the place of a long, centuries-old murmuring, an imperceptible dialogue between one parchment and another, a living thing, a receptacle of powers not to be ruled by a human mind, a treasure of secrets emanated by many minds, surviving the death of those who had produced them or had been their conveyors.
