The most important thing I learned tonight was that da Vinci’s last words were “I have offended God and mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have,” if that’s not a fucking art mood I don’t know what is

I met a beautiful friend who was stuck in the sand at the shoreline and we hung out for a while until he dried off

If you can’t pull me off my horse when I’m on my way to be sacrificed to pay the tiend to hell and hold onto me when I am in the form of various fearsome and loathsome beasts and then, when I take the form of a burning coal, plunge me into a dark well, thus allowing me to resume my true form and releasing me from the spell, then you don’t deserve me at my best

Y’all can argue over the movies and the tv shows all day long, but the best Star Wars will always be Knights of the Old Republic

One of my goals for 2020 has been to take my dog on more walks. I started in December and now we’ve done it enough that she has an established walk time, and if I’m not feeling up to it she will give me big sad eyes until I relent and we go drive to the park and walk around

Please recommend me movies where people wear beautiful robes

It's a good day to join a legion and get sent to a remote post, chatting on the top of a wall, guarding against nothing, making up a new back story every time someone asks for yours, wearing a spiffy uniform and sighing at the horizon. I'm from the ocean. I'm from the plains. I'm from the woods. I'm from the snow.

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
This is the ideal male body. You may not like it,
but this is what peak performance looks like”
