— heard on the st. louis airport p.a. system

ché la luce divina è penetrante
per l’universo secondo ch’è degno,
sì che nulla le puote essere ostante.

"for the world is penetrated by the light of God,
all things according to their dignity.
nothing can stand against its piercing might.”

-dante, paradiso 31.22-24

sorry i didn’t do my homework, professor, i was busy grinding my fingers raw whilst screaming the theological truths of golden boy peanuts over a thrashing ukulele

You are calm, relaxed and at one with yourself. You do not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but instead take the time to appreciate everything around you. For you, happiness, good health and fun is key

My friends made this video for their Intro to Film Studies class. Ross, aka local musician Native America, also created the score.  Sometimes I think the creativity that comes out of my school and city for that matter are too much to handle.  I’m so fucking lucky to be a part of it all.

Great job guys!

this is fantastic!

Chiamavi ‘l cielo e ‘ntorno vi si gira,
mostrandovi le sui bellezze etterne,
e l’occhio vostro pur a terra mira.

Heaven calls to you and turns its splendid rings,
showing you beauties that can never die,
yet you gaze on the earth and earthly things.

Nessun tuo passo caggia.

The Mountain Goats

—Never Quite Free

The Mountain Goats — Never Quite Free
It’s so good to learn that right outside your window
There’s only friendly fields and open roads
And you’ll sleep better when you think you’ve stepped back from the brink
And found some peace inside yourself, laid down your heavy load

It gets alright to dream at night
Believe in solid skies and slate-blue earth below
But when you see him, you’ll know

It’s okay to find the faith to saunter forward
With no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
And you’ll breathe easier just knowing that the worst is all behind you
And the waves that tossed the raft all night have set you on dry land

It gets okay to praise the day
Believe in sheltering skies and stable earth beneath
But hear his breath come through his teeth

Walk by faith
Tell no one what you’ve seen

It’s so good to learn that from right here the view goes on forever
And you’ll never want for comfort and you’ll never be alone
See the sunset turning red, let all be quiet in your head
And look about, all the stars are coming out

They shine like steel swords
Wish me well where I go
But when you see me, you’ll know

…guys i think this is my favorite song
