The Second sign is Ehecatl, or Wind. The glyph is a representation of the head of Ehecatl, the Teótl of the wind. Ehecatl is a capricious Teótl; he brings the gentle breeze, as well as the fearsome hurricane. Those born on his day have a tendency to the unpredictability of Ehecatl. However, Ehecatl is a manifestation of Quetzalcoátl, the Teótl of creation; it is Quetzalcoátl who rules this day. He is the creator, who first gave birth to men, and who brought maize to our ancestors.
Quetzalcoátl is at one and the same time the Teótl of Creation, as well as Quetzalcoátl Topiltzin, the Priest-King of Tollan, who was born man and ruled the great kingdom of the Toltecs. As such, he overcame his darkness in his nature, which exists in the hearts of all men, and became divine; at his death, he rose to the heavens and became the morning star. The mantic image is a representation of this; a great coral snake, symbol of lust, sex, and Tlazoli (disorder or chaos), is pierces by an arrow, which itself transfixes a sacrificial blade. The serpent is crowned with the headdress of Quetzalcoátl, for it is his own dark nature, the Tlazoli in his soul, which is conquered. This is an image of the conquest of the self towards order and light.
As the second day of the Tonalamatl, Ehecatl pertains the the North, the region of the Dead. Those born on this day tend towards the capricious and chaotic nature of the wind. However, just as a wind sweeps clear the road before the coming of the storm, so too those born on this day have as their Tonali the great example of Quetzalcoatl Topiltzin, who conquered his own heart and so became divine.
El segundo signo es Ehecatl, o Viento. El glifo es una representación de la cabeza de Ehecatl, el Teótl del viento. Ehecatl es un Teótl caprichoso; Él trae la brisa apacible, tan bien como el temible huracán. Los nacidos en su día tienen una tendencia a la imprevisibilidad de Ehecatl. Sin embargo, Ehecatl es una manifestación de Quetzalcoátl, el Teótl de la creación; Es Quetzalcoátl quien gobierna este día. Él es el creador, que primero dio a luz a los hombres, y que trajo maíz a nuestros ancestres.
Quetzalcoátl es a la vez el Teótl de la Creación, así como Quetzalcoátl Topiltzin, el Rey Sacerdote de Tollan, que nació hombre y gobernó el gran reino de los Toltecas. Como tal, venció la obscuridad en su naturaleza, que existe en los corazones de todos los hombres, y se hizo divino; En su muerte, él se subió a los cielos y se convirtió en la estrella de la mañana. La imagen mantica es una representación de esto; Una gran serpiente de coral, símbolo de lujuria, sexo y Tlazoli (desorden o caos), es atravesada por una flecha que transfiere una hoja de sacrificio. La serpiente está coronada con el tocado de Quetzalcoátl, porque es su propia naturaleza oscura, el Tlazoli en su alma, que es conquistada. Esta es una imagen de la conquista del yo hacia el orden y la luz.
Como el segundo día del Tonalamatl, Ehecatl pertenece al Norte, la región de los Muertos. Aquellos que nacen en este día tienden hacia la naturaleza caprichosa y caótica del viento. Sin embargo, así como un viento barre el camino antes de la venida de la tormenta, también los nacidos en este día tienen como Tonali el gran ejemplo de Quetzalcoatl Topiltzin, que conquistó su propio corazón y se convirtió en divino.
That is what I thought while watching the latest episode of timeless. I searched on Rittenhouse and found some interesting information. In the show we know Rittenhouse started in the eightteenth century, in the year 1778, a few years after the American Revolutionary War. It is an American kinda government, political organization that is secret and Lucy is most likely born into it, like most members are. Here is the thing. On April 8, 1732 a man named David Rittenhouse was born in Pennsylvania. The stars on the American flag may is because of Rittenhouse. He helped to create borders of different states. He also founded a political party named Democratic-Republican Societies after America became independent. At this time and at this day it are the Democrats and the Republicans who run the United States of America.
David Rittenhouse is the founder of the secret organization Rittenhouse.
Revan—renowned as the Revanchist, honored as the Revan, reviled as Revan the Butcher, dreaded as the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Revan, and praised as the Prodigal Knight—was a Human male who played pivotal roles as both Jedi and Sith in the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War. Believed to have been born in the Outer Rim Territories, the man later known as Revan was born around the year 3994 BBY and studied under a number of different Jedi Masters as a Padawan of the Jedi Order. Becoming fast friends with a fellow student named Alek, the young man became a Jedi Knight and was a vocal and charismatic critic of the Order’s inactivity in the ongoing Mandalorian Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian warrior clans. Leading the Revanchist movement in defiance of the Jedi Council’s wishes and taking on the name of Revan, the Knight donned the mask of a fallen Mandalorian as he joined the Republic Military’s fight and was appointed Supreme Commander. However, when Revan defeated the Mandalorian leader Mandalore the Ultimate at the Battle of Malachor V in 3960 BBY, Revan and his friend Alek, now known as Malak, followed the trail of a mysterious Sith influence on the Mandalorian Wars to the Unknown Regions, where the two discovered a reconstituted Sith Empire and were turned to the dark side of the Force by the Sith Emperor. This was, until, he was stripped of his Sith persona via a mind wipe, so he returned to the crumbling Jedi Order and helped defeat the Sith Empire he had established during his brace with evil. Revan became a legend himself, having walked the line between Jedi and Sith, and truly becoming one with the force.
she loves a broken man
(she is not very whole either)
she breaks own heart, loving a boy who doesn’t think he deserves it
but, she thinks:
-the cosmos ache to hear his laugh
-planets were destroyed and stars were born and stars have died for his existence
-he deserves the whole, entire, almost-infinite universe
but he won’t believe her and she doesn’t know how to explain the most bizarrely simple thing in the world
so, she tells him:
- i love you (third time that day)
- i hope you smile as long as the days that have made you sad
- i want your happiness more than i want most things
- you are not broken in any way that needs to be fixed
she tells him:
- i love you (fourth time that day)
she mends her own heart, loving him (take a break, atlas #11)

Revan—renowned as the Revanchist, honored as the Revan, reviled as Revan the Butcher, dreaded as the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Revan, and praised as the Prodigal Knight—was a Human male who played pivotal roles as both Jedi and Sith in the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War. Believed to have been born in the Outer Rim Territories, the man later known as Revan was born around the year 3994 BBY and studied under a number of different Jedi Masters as a Padawan of the Jedi Order. Becoming fast friends with a fellow student named Alek, the young man became a Jedi Knight and was a vocal and charismatic critic of the Order’s inactivity in the ongoing Mandalorian Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian warrior clans. Leading the Revanchist movement in defiance of the Jedi Council’s wishes and taking on the name of Revan, the Knight donned the mask of a fallen Mandalorian as he joined the Republic Military’s fight and was appointed Supreme Commander.
However, when Revan defeated the Mandalorian leader Mandalore the Ultimate at the Battle of Malachor V in 3960 BBY, Revan and his friend Alek, now known as Malak, followed the trail of a mysterious Sith influence on the Mandalorian Wars to the Unknown Regions, where the two discovered a reconstituted Sith Empire and were turned to the dark side of the Force by the Sith Emperor. Sent back to the Republic as advance agents, the newly anointed Dark Lords of the Sith Darth Revan and Darth Malak broke free of the Emperor’s mental control and established their own empire with the Star Forge, an ancient space station of great power that had been built by the Rakata species. Using the Star Forge to construct a military fleet and weapons, Revan and Malak waged war against the Republic in the resultant Jedi Civil War. However, Revan was betrayed by his Sith apprentice Malak and captured by the Jedi Knight Bastila Shan, who saved Revan and formed a Force bond with her captive.
With his mind wiped, Revan was given a new identity as a Republic soldier by the Jedi Council and stationed aboard the Republic warship Endar Spire. However, when Malak attacked the Spire above the planet Taris in a failed attempt to capture Bastila Shan, Revan joined forces with the Republic officer Carth Onasi and a number of other individuals on Taris to locate Shan and escape the world before Malak destroyed the planet’s surface. Revan and his friends traveled to the planet Dantooine’s Jedi Enclave, where he was retrained as a Jedi Padawan. Sent on a mission to locate the Star Maps, Rakatan artifacts that would lead the way to the Star Forge, Revan gained new allies and grew close with Shan during their travels. However, when the group was captured by Malak, Revan’s true identity was revealed and Shan was captured, forcing Revan and his crew to find the final Map and locate the Star Forge on their own. Aboard the Star Forge, Revan brought a fallen Shan back to the light side of the Force with his love and defeated Malak, earning the Cross of Glory and the title of Prodigal Knight.
Revan married Shan and sank into obscurity for several years until his resurfacing memories led him to leave his wife and unborn child behind in a search for answers in the Unknown Regions. Captured by the Sith, he was imprisoned for three years until a former lieutenant of his named Meetra Surik rescued him with the help of the Sith Lord Scourge. The trio’s attempt to eliminate the Sith Emperor failed, and Revan was held captive by the Emperor for three hundred years until he was finally freed by Republic forces. Taking control of the Rakatan Foundry, Revan attempted to construct an army of extermination droids to destroy the Empire, but the Jedi Master died when he was defeated by an Imperial strike team.
However, the torture that he experienced at the hands of the Emperor had splintered Revan’s mind, and though part of him attempted to become one with the Force, the rest rejected death and clung to life, embracing the dark side. Taking control of the fanatical Order of Revan, he sought to destroy the Sith Emperor once and for all by bringing the Sith ruler back to a physical form and killing him, but both the Empire and the Republic joined together in an effort to stop him. Revan’s light side was unable to pass on and aided the coalition in defeating the dark Revan, and though the Emperor was able to regain his strength, the two halves of Revan merged and were able to die a final death. His legacy, however, would live on; the Sith Lord Darth Rivan, who lived during the thousand-year-conflict known as the New Sith Wars, chose his Sith name after reading a damaged manuscript about Revan, and the Sith Lord Darth Bane discovered Revan’s Sith holocron on the planet Lehon and used Revan’s teachings to develop the Rule of Two philosophy.
Then you should thank
your lucky star that you were born the girl you are.
Maleficent was careful when she chose him, the man who would
be the father of her child, to keep their
faerie blood strong. A daughter made of dragon scales and faerie wings, a
child made of magic she knew would
never flourish completely without guidance and a chance to escape their island.
just love the idea of Luke hero worshipping Han.
Luke Skywalker who blows up the death star and has this whole crowd surrounding him. Hands reaching out to touch him, sweep him up as he passes into an embrace, but no, no, Luke only has eyes for one man in this crowd, Han Kriffin Solo. Hero of the hour, the man who came back and saved the day when nobody else would, and he’s here underneath Luke’s hands, heart beating like star fire beneath his fingers.
And Han nearly
kills himself on Hoth, but he doesn’t, because people like Han are
just born lucky, least that’s what Uncle Owen would have said. Han goes out there, once again to find Luke and
finds him. Saves him. And Leia jokes later about how he must be Luke’s
lucky charm, and Luke laughs because his hands are warm now and he
doesn’t feel that ache in his bones like the cold had settled and
would never leave him. Leia’s curled up on the end of his bed, feet tucked up beneath her and Han’s standing over him, one arm wrapped around Luke’s shoulder, lazy and comfortable and warm. And maybe, maybe Han is his lucky charm, he just has to figure out how to keep him.

we talk a lot about how jack feels about bitty and about the moment he realized, about how he’s so so so in love with him he ran across campus just to kiss him, but we don’t seem to talk about how bitty felt?
like bitty has been falling for this boy for so long now, and jack’s leaving. and he’s heartbroken and miserable, and he can’t quite bring himself to tell jack at graduation even though it’s probably his last chance. he’s going to let jack walk away oblivious to the love bitty feels for him, how much bitty adores him and that’s just so sad? bitty won’t even say it for his own peace of mind to, what, spare jack that conversation? to spare himself the look of horror and regret on jack’s face? oh man. oh bits.
and he’s so desperately in love with this apparently completely straight and unattainable boy who’s about to become the NHL star he was born to be, fulfill a great legacy and probably leave all thought of his lil southern baker buddy behind. there are a million people cooler than bitty who jack will be rubbing elbows with frequently, so many beautiful women flocking to dangle off his arm, and bitty’s just. unimportant, in comparison.
so bitty doesn’t say anything about it, wishes jack well - and is pleasantly surprised jack’s actually coming back for a visit before the new season, fuck - and chooses to help turn jack’s room into chowder’s. he’s supposed to be leaving soon but he’s there, folding chowder’s clothes, sorting through boxes. we know bitty loves chowder and would help him with anything but really? at the end of the year? seems weird. seems like more than helping out a friend. seems to me like bitty needed to do that, needed to brace himself for the fact that jack was gone by physically being a part of the process of removing jack’s presence from his old room.
and he’s crying, of course he’s crying, because it’s so painful. removing jack. physically and symbolically making the point that jack will no longer be a great presence in his life, that bitty won’t be a great presence in his. that they’ll just be old hausmates, old college friends, that jack’s going to go on and be happy and bitty’s got to try, hasn’t he? that’s why he’s doing this. he’s in love with a boy he can’t have and he’s got to start packing jack away now otherwise he’ll spend his life pining in front of a screen whilst jack cuts up the ice, oblivious.
but he listens to halo, too, can’t help it, it’s his song - in some other world, might have been their song - and then-
and then. jack. the man he’s deeply in love with, who he’s resigned himself to losing, turns up ruffled, out of breath. stares at bitty like he’s his whole world. and bitty still doesn’t get it in that moment, has to ask if jack’s okay, because he cares, he always cares so much, and jack just. kisses him.
and every dream he ever had about love comes true.
The screenwriter Troy Kennedy Martin was born on February 15th 1932.
It’s usually the actors who get the glory and the in general the posts celebrating their contribution, but where would they be without the relatively unknown and overlooked writers like Kennedy Martin? Mention Z Cars, The Italian Job and Edge of Darkness and you will have three very well known pieces written by this Rothesay born man, yet in a career spanning six decades, these iconic works represent only the tip of an iceberg, with much of his television work unknown or lost and many scripts, for film and TV, unproduced.
Add Kelly’s Heroes starring Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas and Donald Sutherland in 1970, then Red Heat with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jim Belushi it shows the scope of his writing.
He also wrote episodes of the very popular 70’s cop show the Sweeney, incidentally created by his brother Ian Kennedy Martin, and one of my favourite 80’s mini-series Reilly, Ace of Spies, dramatizing the true life of Sidney Reilly, a Russian Jew who became one of the greatest spies ever.
Another true story he wrote the screenplay for was that of former SAS Andy McNab in Bravo Two Zero, made into a mini-series in 1999.
Kennedy Martin died of liver cancer on 15 September 2009, aged 77.
Don’t talk to me about Anakin Skywalker. Don’t talk to me about a child born in slavery who never quite broke free of the lifestyle he was accustomed to. Don’t talk to me about a boy who was purchased because of his skills and raised to call his protectors and teachers ‘Master’. Don’t talk to me about the youth who would do everything in his power to achieve what his Masters needed, no matter the risk to himself. Don’t talk to me about the man who cared too much and protected too fiercely and lost himself in the righteous anger that burned in him as hot as the twin suns of Tatooine.
And especially don’t talk to me about his daughter who had the same fire, the same righteous anger, but called no man master. Don’t talk to me about how her anger gave her strength to resist torture and manipulation, how she hated the Empire but used it as an anchor to do what needed to be done without compromising her beliefs, how she refused to make herself vulnerable to emotion the way he did. Don’t talk to me about the fact that she succeeded where her father failed, that she became the leader the Republic needed, and she never let her righteous anger turn her as it did her father.
Don’t tell me Leia Organa is only her mother’s child. Leia Organa is more Skywalker than her brother, tempered by the iron will of the Naberries.
You hated it, hated this, hated him. He was not the man your mother talked about. The man in front of you was a monster…a killer…and he was your father, you had to live with the knowledge that you were born from a man who had killed millions…all just to prove himself and keep his pride intact..and you were related to that.
Rock Hudson : Early in his career he had surgery on his vocal chords to make his voice deeper, and had his teeth capped. The surgery had the unfortunate side effect of making it impossible for Hudson to learn to sing.
- According to the book, “The Man Who Invented Rock Hudson”, the original plan was to call him “Roc” but someone pointed out the possibility of confusion with the 1940s actress, Rochelle Hudson, so a “k” was added and “Roc” became “Rock”.
Cary Grant : Paramount Pictures named him Cary Grant while he began his film career, because the similarity of the name to Gary Cooper, their biggest male star, (C.G. being an inversion of G.C.) and possibly because Clark Gable had the same initials. Gable and Cooper were born with their last names, however, with Grant having been born Archibald Leach.
- Smoked up to 60 cigarettes a day until 1957, when his third wife Betsy Drake made him give up in order to protect his voice. He quit smoking while filming An Affair to Remember (1957) after visiting a hypnotist. However, she recalled occasionally catching him smoking outside the house, so he probably never stopped completely.
Rita Hayworth : Ava Gardner’s part Maria Vargas in “The Barefoot Contessa” (1954) was based on Rita.
- Fred Astaire, who co-starred with Rita Hayworth in two movies, said in his autobiography that she was his favorite dancing partner, and dancing was, indeed, one of her genuine talents.
Joan Crawford : She was so dedicated to her fans that she always personally responded to her fan mail by typing responses on blue paper and autographing it. A great deal of her spare time and weekends were spent doing this.
- Whenever she stayed in a hotel, no matter how good or reputable it was, she always scrubbed the bathroom herself before using it.
Ava Gardner : By the end of 1950, MGM’s publicity department was sending out
black-and-white photos of Ava Gardner to the tune of three thousand
requests per week, a figure that only Esther Williams bettered.
- Her early education was sketchy; by 1945, she had read two books, the Bible and “Gone with the Wind.” In later life, she more than made up for this lack by continual self-education.
Jean Harlow : On the day Hollywood canine superstar Rin Tin Tin died at age 16, Harlow, who lived across the street from his master, Lee Duncan, went over to cradle the dog’s head in her lap as the famous canine died.
- Everyone on the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lot called her “The Baby” with the exception of Clark Gable. A very close friend, he always called her “Sis”.
Lucille Ball : Her natural hair color was brown.
- Before her movie career, Lucille was a model at Hattie Carnegie’s in New York. She mainly modeled heavy fur coats, because she was startlingly thin as a young lady.
Vivien Leigh : Scarlett O'Hara might have been played by an actress called ‘April Morn’, a stage name she briefly considered before settling on Vivien Leigh.
- Vivien Leigh’s natural eye color was blue but was color corrected to Scarlett O'Hara’s green in post-production.
Judy Garland : Wore fake teeth for The Wizard of Oz.
- Has a special variety of rose named after her. The petals are yellow (Garland adored yellow roses) and the tips are bright red.
