Till Human Voices Wake Us

And we drown.

asmorningbreaks:

my friends and i are putting together an album for some friends of ours who just had their first child yesterday morning.  this is a little lullaby i wrote for him called “watercolor sky.”  i wrote about sunsets because when i was really young, i would always ask my parents “who painted the sky?”  and that sorta inspired this.

child, in your cradle, waiting to fall asleep
look out your window, oh, do you see?
there’s a watercolor sunset and it’s painted by
a man who climbs a mile-long ladder every night to paint the sky

and the man who paints the sky asked my to tell you
that he paints the sky each night to say he loves you
he made you more beautiful than a
water color sunset that he gives us every day
and when you look out at that sky each night
i pray your joy would be as big as the watercolor sky

child, i wish you nothing but joy
i pray you will run far and fast with all the other boys
i pray you will feel loved no matter where you roam
and i hope you always hear the soothing windchimes of your home

and the man who paints the sky asked my to tell you
that he paints the sky each night to say he loves you
he made you more beautiful than a
water color sunset that he gives us every day
and when you look out at that sky each night
i pray your joy would be as big as the watercolor sky

i pray your joy would be as big as the watercolor sky

here’s to you, baby eddie

Emerging from my cave temporarily to reblog this. This classy girl has a lovely voice and can play guitar beautifully.

"Traditionally, Christians in Iraq (specifically in Christian towns) put a Cross that lights up at night on top of their homes starting the first week of September in preparation for the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Although the refugees are out of their homes and they themselves are carrying their cross every day, some maintained the tradition by placing a Cross by their tents in their refugee camps as a reminder of their tradition and faith. May their faith increase more and more and may the Cross of Jesus give them light, strength and life instead of darkness, weakness and death that they are experiencing every day."

This looks so much like I would’ve imagined St Francis to look like

never loved a gif so much

this is kinda creepy tho

The story behind this painting is very interesting, though.  The artist’s mother was very sick, so the house was always filled a suffocating silence.  This painting depicts him wanting to scream, but having to be silent, hence the anguished expression.  In the whole painting you see figures in the background, one of which is his sister.

If Hollywood could stop portraying every religious/conservative/pro-life person as a preachy, judgmental snob with a stick up their ass that would be great thanks

Republicans: Old white rich guys

Democrats: Everybody else

Take a guess who has more power in society

Normally I’d start to post pictures of many Republicans who are not old white rich guys, but that’s going to take too long. So my followers should add one to the post and reblog. Just keep this going.
