Broken Mirror

“I’m like a broken mirror.” He leans his head back against the airplane seat headrest and sighs.

“That’s incredibly dramatic.”

Her response is rewarded with a rueful smile laced with reluctant amusement.

“Hey, but even if you were,” she adds softly, “That would be alright too. You know I’d help piece you back together again.”

Her heart sinks the same time his smile fades. And even though people are still boarding the aircraft, it feels like they’ve been shot out of the sky, falling in unison, straight through clouds of self-doubt that refuse to catch them.

“I am,” he insists. “And the thing is, you could get cut trying to help. And even if you didn’t, it wouldn’t make a difference - because in the end, my reflection still won’t ever be the same.”

She squeezes his hand in response. And for now, that’s enough.

Saint Teresa of Ávila said in her book Las Moradas “Blessed are those who fear God” while this book was written in the 16th century, I believe that it’s still meaningful today. Those who fear the powers of the universe, the truth, justice are the good people for they will stray from evil and wicked acts, and will enable them to do acts of good and generosity. It explains in the book that this is one of the first castles inside the human soul, and is one that must be passed through on the journey to self actualization

Shout out to nonbinary people:

Shout out to nonbinary people: who are still unsure of their gender

Shout out to nonbinary people: who thought they knew their gender but now they are questioning again

Shout out to nonbinary people: who don’t feel secure without a super specific name for their gender

Shout out to nonbinary people: who know part of their gender but don’t know or aren’t sure about other parts of their gender

Shout out to nonbinary people: who are afraid of how others will react if they tell them they identify as something different than they thought

“Hey,” mumbled Tooru, eyes of ember and gold full of tenderness. Hajime knew that only he was blessed with this sight. He was gorgeous. (He wouldn’t tell this to Tooru though) 

“Hey, Sleepykawa.” Hajime couldn’t help a grin. He was blessed. (He wouldn’t say this either)

“So rude, Iwa-chan!” chuckled Tooru.

Lazy and quiet afternoons like this were by far his favorite.

Viking Gilt Odin and Ravens Pendant, 10th Century AD

Silver-gilt pendant showing a male figure (Odin?) with hands around the necks of two large birds.

Odin is the god of poetry, wisdom, lord of the dead and is known as the All Father as the head of the pantheon of gods in the Scandinavian world. With his brothers, Vili and Ve, Odin created the cosmos out of the giant Ymir, whom they killed. Odin was married to Frija and their son,Thor, became one of the most important of the gods; he also had two other sons, Vali and Vidar, gods of vengeance, as well as Baldr, one of the most beloved gods.

Odin’s most important characteristic is his wisdom. One of the most intriguing myths tells of his acquisition of wisdom through self sacrifice on the world tree Yggdrasil. This is recounted in the Havamal: ‘I know that I hung on the wind-swept tree nine entire nights, wounded with a spear given to Odin, myself to myself on that tree, of which no man knows of what roots it runs. I took up the learned runes.’

Odin lives in Valhalla, or 'carrion-hall’, where slain warriors sport each day and night. He is therefore the god of the dead, and Snorri Sturluson says that Odin could awaken the dead to learn secrets from them. As lord of the dead he is associated with ravens, carrion animals of the battlefields. He has two, named Hugin, meaning 'thought’, and Munin, meaning 'memory’. At the beginning of each day the two birds fly around the world observing the world of men, and each evening return to Odin to perch on his shoulders and recount all that they have seen.

Odin presides over the banishing of the Midgard serpent and Hel to the outer ocean and the underworld, respectively, as well as binding the wolf Fenrir. Odin is destined to die at Ragnarok when the Fenrir wolf will be free. The universe will be destroyed only to reemerge from the fires and chaos.
