About: "There are the mud-flowers of dialect
And the immortelles of perfect pitch
And that moment when the bird sings very close
To the music of what happens." - Seamus Heaney, "Song"

“And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.” —William Shakespeare, As You Like It

"Y este oficio de escribir. Veo por espejo, en oscuridad. Presiento un lugar que nadie más que yo conoce. Canto de las distancias, escucho voces de pájaros pintados sobre árboles adornados como iglesias." - Alejandra Pizarnik, "La noche, el poema"

Legolas what the fuck happened to your elf eyes



fun fact: Orlando Bloom’s eyes are naturally dark brown, but when playing Legolas wears blue contacts. but in the LOTR films sometimes they forgot to put the contact lenses in.

In the Hobbit films they seem to have taken extra care to remember the contact lenses…

that is actually hilarious

Legolas is becoming one of the Fremen of Arrakis. D:

The end of my day was spontaneously wonderful. I took my mandolin to the reservoir because I couldn’t stand practicing indoors when it was so beautiful out. I also revisited some translations (Pizarnik) and my hair came out super curly!

I finally start teaching tomorrow. Lots of exciting collaborations and opportunities have been coming up and I hope to report on them soon!!
