Today I will tell you the story of a man drowned in the cold waters of the ocean. After the loss of a loved one. This is the story about a man who died twice. (x)

I’m just a person who didn’t wanna do any more harm. Don’t start getting all mystical on me, okay? I’m not the messiah. I don’t have any special powers.

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

In reality, Americans are less likely to move upward from their class of origin than are Germans, Canadians, Finns, French people, Swedes, Norwegians, or Danes. But the myth, fortified with bracing doses of positive thinking, persists. As two researchers at the Brookings Institution observed, a little wryly, in 2006:

“[The] strong belief in opportunity and upward mobility is the explanation that is often given for Americans’ high tolerance for inequality. The majority of Americans surveyed believe that they will be above mean income in the future (even though that is a mathematical impossibility).”

Just a little fanart for the lovely zombie tv series “In The Flesh”. 

This series is guaranteed to break your heart. Watch it anyway.

(also watch it even if you don’t really like zombies!)

kajoi:

Okay, some more fanart for the bbcthree zombie show that I currently love very much! So, Simon…I don’t understand how this character can go from a creepy vampire zombie extremist to a cute puppy you just want to protect forever. Just…how.

This kind of goes together with the Kieren one, I am also planning to draw Amy because I feel these works could make a nice triptych!
