Now Playing Tracks

i will not promise you a legend,
(as if a person could promise such),
but i will tell you this:
that my love for you is echoes,

that my hands in yours are swallows
singing for the light that blew in bravely
over the still morning and the still mourning
trenches of the somme.

when you answer the prayer of my aching ribs
by pressing your mouth to my skin,
i hope upon hope that the prayers of forebearers,
not selfish like mine, are answered too;

a soldier on his knees at the banks of the vistula
a mother to her waist in water in the ganges
a fighter on the rue saint-jacques with a cross at her chest and
a gun at the heel of her hand.

my vertebrae are stones collected at the edge of the caldera;
the water laps and washes me clean.
you kiss me and say you cannot remember eyes as heavy as mine,
and i promise you you’re wrong.

i cannot- will not- will us into legend,
but i will promise you history.

(maybe someday we too
will be echoes of something new.)

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel

reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better

Our first attempt at a Swedish fire log was a smashing success.

burns for hours and it looks beautiful.

I have no idea how you make a Swedish fire long

but i have a MIGHTY NEED for a Swedish fire log

It’s actually super easy and you see basically how in the picture: Just cut slits about like 3/4 down in a big (dry) log with a chainsaw. Then, just light it up on top with some smaller branches and whatever, the inside will catch fire, and it’ll burn for a long time. Great at outside events in the cold months.
