History fan, bit of an obsession with Celts, Mongols, Vikings and dinosaurs. I love video games and RPG. Also love metal, especially Folk. Hmm, that's about it, I guess.

 

Never since have the Ainur made any music like to this music, though it has been said that a greater still shall be made before Ilúvatar by the choirs of the Ainur and the Children of Ilúvatar after the end of days.

repress:

Do you ever want to talk to someone but

1) You feel like you’re bothering them or coming off clingy
2) You don’t have anything to say, you just want to talk to them
3) You don’t know how to hold a conversation to save your life 

But in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself.

C.S. Lewis, An Experiment in Criticism. (via wordsnquotes)

floozys:

there’s a lot of unspoken pressure to keep liking the things you used to like and to keep dressing the way you’ve always dressed and to never question what you believe in and basically “be yourself” has slowly morphed into “be what everyone knows you as” but trust me when i say if you just give it up and simply make decisions and take actions based purely on what would make you happy, you’ll gain a very comforting sense of self peace

The earliest depiction of Kyzikos, son of Apollo 
This electrum stater from Kyzikos, Mysia, c. 460-400 BC shows the hero Kyzikos, riding his rearing horse at a gallop to the right. This is the earliest depiction of the Thessalian Kyzikos, the son of Apollo and the founder of the famous city of Kyzikos located at the Sea of Marmara, where the tuna fish catch was so important that the animal became the characteristic feature of this city’s coinage. The reverse shows a quadripartite incuse square. A rare and very fine coin.
The entire trade in grain as well as slaves in the Black Sea Region was transacted with electrum coins from Kyzikos such as this for many decades. The site of ancient Kyzikos is located in the modern Balıkesir Province of Turkey. It was located on the shoreward side of the present Kapıdağ Peninsula (the classical Arctonnesus), a tombolo which is said to have originally been an island in the Sea of Marmara only to be connected to the mainland in historic times either by artificial means or an earthquake.

We caught this raccoon family out exploring at Wild Turkey Strand Preserve this winter. Monitoring mammals in our wetlands helps us understand the impacts of restoration and other changes in land use, and the spread of invasive species.
