    Almost all of my friends have died from eating their phones because they didn’t want their significant others to see who they were talking to.

    I know that He exists.
    Somewhere – in silence –
    He has hid his rare life
    From our gross eyes.
    ’Tis an instant’s play –
    ’Tis a fond Ambush –
    Just to make Bliss
    Earn her own surprise!
    But – should the play
    Prove piercing earnest –
    Should the glee – glaze –
    In Death’s – stiff – stare –
    Would not the fun
    Look too expensive!
    Would not the jest –
    Have crawled too far!
    —Emily Dickinson, Complete Works, “Part One: Life”

    Selfie of drunk medieval decorator

    This is an unusual image, in more than one sense of the word: it is a rare example of a selfie made by a person who decorated medieval books; and he is drinking on the job. Check out other selfies from medieval times - and the story behind them - in my new blog post: Medieval Selfies.

    some words from the Worst Muse, on twitter. Might be a good resource of (anti) advice for aspiring writers ;)

    If anyone’s doing a paper on social media and/or effective satire: you’re welcome. ;)

    dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

    n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land.

    medievalpoc:

    Thanks! I’ve always enjoyed it.

    i am accused of tending to the past
    i am accused of tending to the past
    as if i made it,
    as if i sculpted it
    with my own hands. i did not.
    this past was waiting for me
    when i came,
    a monstrous unnamed baby,
    and i with my mother’s itch
    took it to breast
    and named it
    History.
    she is more human now,
    learning languages everyday,
    remembering faces, names and dates.
    when she is strong enough to travel
    on her own, beware, she will.
