“This is very high, Y/N. Are you sure you want to do this?” Cas asked, looking down to the waves below. “The man at the hotel said there were hikes we could take–ones that didn’t involve jumping off cliffs.”
“Are you scared, Cas?” you asked, teasing. He looked to you with his face set, though, brow furrowed, and you couldn’t help but laugh.
“I’m worried about you, so yes, a little scared,” he said. “There are rocks we might hit on the way down, the tide could be strong, there–”
“Cas,” you stopped him. “It’s a leap of faith. Kind of like getting married to me was.”
His face softened at that and he took your hand in his, running his thumb over the ring on your fourth finger.
“Then we’ll jump together here, too,” he nodded, and clasping your hand a little tighter, the two of you counted down and, holding tight to one another, you jumped together into the unknown.
“Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.”
“I continue to check the mail
for letters I know will not come
meanwhile - once a week
the woman down the street
visits her husband’s grave
and the old dog on my neighbor’s
porch nuzzles another dead pup
and my best friend stares at
the new tan line on his ring finger.
You keep reading the last text
she ever bothered to send you -
‘I’m sorry. I’m
Aaron Blaise, animator of classic Disney characters from films including Lion King, Aladdin,Pocahontas and Beauty and the Beast has created a tribute image of Cecil the lion, who was shot and killed in Zimbabwe this month by an American hunter.
In honor of Cecil, Blaise posted the digital rendering and also a time-lapse video that reveals the making of it. He writes in a statement on the site: “As you may be able to tell I am a HUGE animal lover and it drives me crazy when I see these beautiful creatures destroyed for no good reason. In fact, I’ve decided to get personally involved and hopefully our efforts can help educate people and prevent these horrible things from happening in the future.”
The image of Cecil looming large in the sky above three other lions is accompanied by a quote from the Lion King in which Simba’s father, Mufasa, tells him: “Look at the stars. The great kings from the past look down upon us from those stars.”
“It’s not much,” writes Blaise, “but hopefully it will make people think.”
