PRETTY.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

We are still watching you, Missouri.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: Maybe the world’s been moving fast around you and maybe your thoughts have been moving fast inside your own skull, and either way, things can start to slow down this week. You can find moments of sweet stillness; you can find time just to sit, just to live, just to watch colors in the sky. Everything around you can come into focus. Everything around you can make sense, for now. Just keep your head up and keep your eyes open and keep breathing the clear sweet morning air.
Taurus: You’re going to be so busy this week, busy just building the best life you can, busy growing older, busy growing up. There might be hints of magic and there might be signs of a glowing future somewhere up ahead, but this will mostly be a week for keeping your head, for keeping your feet on the ground, for staying honest. Try to keep believing in your own life. Try to keep believing that all this work matters. Try to get enough sleep. It’s going to be a very good week.
Gemini: This week will present you with some challenges, maybe; it will offer you some choices. This might seem difficult and it might seem like too much, but you’ll know what to do. You already have all the tools you need, you have all the raw materials, you have all the wisdom and the guts. Try not to forget that. Don’t let anyone convince you that you don’t know what you need. You can make warmth out of nothing; you can build joy out of air. There will be nothing that you can’t handle.
Cancer: The world around you can calm down this week, and your days can all start to make sense again. You can sleep so well and you can wake up happy and you can move like you know where you’re going. Things are going to be okay this week, even the things that didn’t seem like they would be, so try to use your time to be kind. Try to use your time to set things right. You can find your own balance again. You can find your own voice. You can find what you need.
Leo: There will be so many things that you don’t know, this week. There will be so many things that can make you feel small. There will be so many kinds of love that will be gentler and weirder and more real than you can even see, and it’s okay. This is a week for learning to let other people live, learning to feel small, learning to feel awe at all the things you don’t know and can’t even predict. Just try to keep your eyes open. Try to keep your heart beating. Try to be kind.
Virgo: Your thoughts have been racing inside you, maybe, working so hard to make sense of the world, working so hard to find a story that makes sense. This week things might start to settle. This week you might start to feel solid again. Things have changed inside of you, and this is a week for adjusting. It’s a week for being as patient as you can. It’s a week for practicing living until it feels natural and easy again. Your days might not make sense yet, but they will.
Libra: This week does not have to be such a big week; this week does not have to bear all the weight of the past and the future, and it does not have to bear the weight of all of your secret dreams. This week, try to give yourself a moment to rest. Take a bath, take a day off, take a minute to watch the sky. You’ve survived so many things already, and all you have to do this week is be very good to other people. All you have to do this week is be kind.
Scorpio: This is a week for trying; this is a week for experimenting. This is a week for doing things you’ve never done before, for talking to strangers or cooking without a recipe or driving without a map. Go to places where you’re never been before, places where there might be sparks and their might be nothing and there might be magic like nothing you’ve ever seen. It’s hard to surprise your own self, so let the world do it for you. Let the world show you what you didn’t know you were looking for.
Sagittarius: It’s okay to let your dreams light you up this week, it’s okay to let them make you happy, it’s okay to let them make you a little gentle. It’s okay to believe in the magic of what’s possible. It’s okay to trust the path that you’re walking on, to believe that it’s leading to the place you’re hoping to find. Either you’ll be right in the end or you won’t, and either way it will be okay, and you’ll keep living, and the sun will still light up your days all gold and bright.
Capricorn: If you’re not so productive this week, or if you don’t spend your time the way you think you should, try not to worry. Nothing’s going to be wasted this week, not even your wasted time. Things are going to keep getting better this week, slowly, quietly, so gently that you might not notice. It’s a week for opening all your windows and watching the light change; it’s a week for watching storms in the afternoon. It’s a week for getting up early and watching the sun rise over the trees and rooftops.
Aquarius: This is a week for waiting and watching and letting the world unfurl itself all bright around you. This is a week for eating lunch outside, a week for looking to the sun, a week for letting your body set its own pace. It’s okay, sometimes, to go through slow seasons and dry seasons and strange seasons. It’s okay to move slowly when you need to. It’s okay to give yourself time to let your brain catch up with your body, time to let your dreams catch up with the sky.
Pisces: There are thing you’ve been working to let go and there are things you’ve been meaning to let go and there are things that you haven’t even noticed hanging over your head, weighing heavy in all your bags and your pockets. There are things that have been taking up too much space in your heart. This is a week for clearing out some space for yourself. You can drop some of this heaviness, and you can be brave enough to carry the rest. Have your friends over for dinner. Fill your dreams with light.

Never.

"During the company’s press event the artist Banksy posted a drawing to his Twitter feed of an iPhone growing roots that strangle and sink into the wrist of the hand holding it. You can see where he was coming from. This is technology establishing a new beachhead. To wear a device as powerful as the Apple Watch makes you ever so slightly post-human."
Real life is so much more like science fiction now.

Please excuse me while I go hide in the woods now. Kthx.

Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

Doesn’t that look beautiful?

Like something you’d find on one of those soft/nature blogs?

Well you are in for a surprise

The Bolton Strid in England is one of the most innocent looking streams. 

Though it looks like you could just hop across the rocks, but if you miss you will die for sure. It packs very rapid currents just a couple of feet below its surface. No one really knows how deep it really is. Nobody who has ever fallen into the Strid has survived. It has a 100% fatality rate.

It’s always the things I google expecting to be false that wind up being horribly true.

I forgot to add but here is a SOURCE

"It’s relatively common for people to assume they can jump the creek, walk across its stones or even wade through it (again, just looking at it, the Strid really seems to be only knee-deep in places, and certainly not the instant, precipitous drop into a watery grave that it is). Most of the time, they never even find the body. Which means there are just dozens of corpses down there, pinned to the walls of the underground chasms, waiting for you to join them…"

Whoa.

Heqet (Heket)
A goddess of childbirth and fertility, depicted as a frog, or a woman with the head of a frog. According to one tradition, she was the wife of Khnum, the creator god of Abu (Elephantine). He created each person on his potter’s wheel, and she breathed life into them before they were placed in their mother’s womb. Pregnant women wore amulets depicting Heqet for protection, and during the Middle Kingdom ritual ivory knives and clappers inscribed with her name were used to ward off evil during childbirth. She could also bring on labour and offer protection during labour. 
Heqet was depicted as a frog because, to the Egyptians, the frog was a symbol of life and fertility, since millions of them were born after the annual inundation of the Nile.

"Take off your boots, babe,
swing your thigh over mine. I like it
when you do the same old thing
in the same old way.
And then a few kisses, easy, loose,
like the ones we’ve been
kissing for a hundred years."
