These beautiful moths and butterflies look like they’re ready to flutter up and away, but they won’t be doing so because they’re wonderful textile sculptures painstakingly created by North Carolina-based artist Yumi Okita. She sews, embroiders and stitches all sorts of multi-colored fabrics to create these oversized insects, which measure nearly a foot wide. She also adds painted details along with feathers and artificial fur. With great care Okita has achieved an awesome balance between astonishing realism and fanciful invention.

Fun Fact

I don’t trust your words. I will trust your actions.

I’m frustrated.

Everyone around me is so wordy, but when it comes time to act on those words…they don’t budge. They just spit up more words.

Don’t say you’re going to help if you’re not going to help. I don’t see why that’s so difficult.

knocking down dominos made of dominos 

this is more satisfying than it should be

According to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, entropy in a closed system can only stay the same or increase.
When applied to the entire universe, this means that any time you destroy something organized, that is organization you can never get back.
Think of the energy spent to make those walls of dominoes. When the first wall was tapped, that energy was released. It’s now gone forever. ‘Work’ energy - the energy it took to organize that system, work that the system stored as potential energy - was released as movement, force, sound, and a small amount of heat, all of which dispersed almost instantly and became something we can never recapture.
And while it probably took hours to harness that energy into organization, it only took a second to disperse it into entropy. This is a gif of how the universe ends.

Three people in particular, I feel I owe a lot to because of tiny little gestures they have made this past week that have left behind huge craters of gratitude and hope. I don’t even think they realize it.

My summer was not what I had expected it to be. It hasn’t been what I wanted. Summer has always been hard for me, and this has been one of the worst to date.

But for them to go out of their way to spend some time with me, to invite me out, to send me a simple text message on a normal day, just because they wanted to…probably doesn’t sound like anything out of the ordinary for most of you, but to me they’ve gone above and beyond.  I’m glad I have them around right now.

Good job not spoilering things Sean Bean

lol.

I LOVE IT!

And I also love Sean Bean is proud enough of the show and his work to consider coming back! And being aware of the story.

So glad it wasn’t just a paycheck to him.
