#365daysofwonder January 16th Precept: “Just be who you want to be, not what others want to see.”
Today’s precept applies beautifully to missamykr’s character, Uni, a unicorn who believes little girls are REAL no matter what her friends think. #unibelieves #choosekind #thewonderofwonder missbrigette
I realised that most of the stories I’ve written have always dealt with the concept of being alone; never as a bad thing, though the worst it can be is melancholic, but as a trait that somehow belongs to the main characters which they have accepted as part of their being. I could then easily how it echoed the experience of most of my entire life, being a very lonely child who kept to herself. I’m still the same person essentially, I still have mental conversations with myself (I think I’m a very funny conversationalist; too bad my social anxiety prevents most people other than my friends from enjoying it), but I’ve accepted this constant trait of being alone and managed to turn it into something that opens doors for me to experience the world in ways I wouldn’t have noticed (try being in a field looking at the clouds passing by! That’s my positive association with being alone).
Being in an age where everyone is connected everywhere and talking to everyone every time (Facebook, anyone?), it can make us more afraid of being alone than we already naturally are. We all have a need to belong to each other. At the same time though we need to learn how to belong to ourselves, and personally I find that it’s a very important especially with so many things going on we could very easily lose ourselves. Having a rich inner life is just as important as having a rich outer life, and they both inform each other.
*I may have jumbled up loneliness and being alone as being the same thing. Yeah I know!! It’s just how I experienced it; sometimes I really hate how I’m unable to easily make friends, which often makes me feel negatively isolated especially in a new environment (I was ALONE in college for a year until I found my clique). It’s terrible. But still things worked out in the end. Until it does though, make a friend out of yourself in the meantime.
when i was little and my parents were driving id pretend there was a man/being/thing running alongside the car who had to follow certain rules like “he can only travel by jumping from streetlight to streetlight” or “he can only walk on fences”
i was so surprised to find out that other people did similar things
i wonder what the underlying psychology behind it is
like its a really specific thing to do but almost everyone did it without telling other kids about it because we all thought it was probably weird or unimportant
this would make a good creepypasta
Out of Sight (敲敲)
Left alone by her guide dog, a blind girl resorts to her other senses and her powerful imagination to make her way around. Out of Sight is a wonderful short film made by graduates from the National Taiwan University of Arts.
I have always been afraid to loose my eyesight somehow someday. This helped me a lot.
Same here *highfive* this animation is extremely cute too, It does feel a tad Ghibli-ish with all the magical stuff happening in her imagination

Here’s my piece from the Pictures Worth a Thousand Words show at Ltd Art Gallery in Seattle. It sold on opening night, but there will be some prints available on their site soon. The piece is an interpretation of Aldous Huxley’s Doors of Perception.
“ Thou Art I, Madness— Myoo89
And I Art Thou.
I shall harness thou into my own,
And thou shall have a new name,
And thou shall be known as Imagination.
Thou and I, Imagination.
For thou still have the madness in you,
and Thou still love by others, and also by me.
Thou shall be forever by my side,
Come with me,
For we shalt rule the world,
with the power of imaginations ”

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
