those mountains are beautiful

Please send East Tennessee your positive energy, prayers, good vibes–whatever you have to offer. Our area has been waiting for fires to die down for a couple weeks now. It’s destroying our beautiful mountains and threatening those that find home in the mountains (may that be critters or people). Like a Phoenix, Tennessee will rise from the ashes.

Life consists of rare individual moments of the highest significance and countless intervals in which at best the phantoms of those moments hover about us. Love, spring, a beautiful melody, the mountains, the moon, the sea – they all speak truly to our heart only once: if they ever do in fact truly find speech.
—  Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human

For years the road felt like home but now it’s just space till I see you again…

Headed towards those beautiful Rocky Mountains to shoot a video project! It’s gonna be a good week

Life consists of rare, isolated moments of the greatest significance, and of innumerably many intervals, during which at best the silhouettes of those moments hover about us. Love, springtime, every beautiful melody, mountains, the moon, the sea - all these speak completely to the heart but once, if in fact they ever do get a chance to speak completely

In a broken and fallen world, God says, “I am the God of hope. My message is one of salvation, restoration and healing. I have chosen you to be My messenger. I have equipped you with the Truth and your story of redemption. Take it to those who are hurting, who are searching for meaning. Share the good news with those who most need it.”
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Isaiah 52:7

Where to go in Canada? Hike Joffre Lakes in BC

What a hike that was! I lived in Whistler for 2 years and you could never get tired of the beauty those mountains have to offer you. Everyone thinks that if you don’t like winter sports than why go! OH NO, because I don’t enjoy winter sports BUT THE SUMMERS ARE EPIC! Hanging out by the lakes, doing crazy hikes, bonfire at night, you name it! 

A MUST VISIT!

I looked northward and stepped back again. The six other courts of Prythian occupied a patchwork of territories. Autumn, Summer, and Winter were easy enough to pick out. Then above them, two glowing courts: the southernmost one a softer, redder palate, the Dawn Court; above, in bright gold and yellow and blue, the Day Court. And above that, perched in a frozen mountainous spread of darkness and stars, the sprawling, massive territory of the Night Court.

There were things in the shadows between those mountains - little eyes, gleaming teeth. A land of lethal beauty. The hair on my arms rose.

My land is on fire.

Everything is burning. EVERYTHING. A lot of my friends that live in small towns are being forced to leave their houses, and if the wind changes, I will probably have to do so.


This is horrible.

You see Valencia? The grey mark? Well, that’s the THIRD BIGGEST CITY in Spain after Barcelona. You can see how BIG the red marks are, right? That’s FIRE. It was raining /ash/ in Valencia a couple of days ago.
And because the government over here is SHIT, a couple of years ago they took more than half of the budget to prevent fire. More than 200 firefighters weren’t hired this year, so there are a lot of small towns that don’t have FIREFIGHTERS. You know where that money went?

To bring the POPE. TO VALENCIA. WHAT THE HELL.

Oh, and do I need to mention that now it is LEGAL to build over carbonized terrain? Yeah. That’s why half of the mountains over here are completely peeled of vegetation, forests, etc. and are covered with fucking APARTMENTS.
It is just so sad. I don’t get humans. Seriously.

Sorry for the rant, but I just needed to post this somewhere.

Man Face Monday - Eyelashes are Everything Edition

Hello friends of The Face! Hope that you survived your weekend. 

I’m still upright, so that’s cool. Looking forward to another new episode this week, although I am dreading each episode a little because there is a season-ending cliffhanger coming soon and I don’t know if I can handle the angst. 

A quick thank you to everyone who read, liked or reblogged my last one-shot, “Mythology.” Your amazing response was so encouraging and is deeply appreciated. 

Let us get on with the business at hand! I love the eyelashes in this first shot. And the nose. And the damn mole. I just want to worship the mole beside the pillow mountains. It’s exquisite. 

Those eyes. Devastating. 

A beautiful smile is therapeutic, don’t you think?

Moody. Black and white profile. He’s pretty great in monochrome. 

This one is my favorite this week. I was pleased with the texture and colors. The eyelashes are only rivaled by the scruff here. 

There you have it, my friend. Another Man Face Monday, done and dusted. I hope it made you smile and will set you on your way for the rest of the week. I think there may be a special Tuesday post tomorrow. Be on the look out! Do have a wonderful week, enhanced by beautiful things! You deserve that.
