"She looked steadily in the glass when no one was by and saw a face that excited her strangely; her being began to have a definite shape, a place in the world — what was it like?"-Virginia Woolf, from Moments of Being (via theglasschild)
"But still, had it not been for this desolation, laying her whole nature bare, and bidding it put forth its powers in entire loneliness, could she ever have shown herself as noble and as true as she was?"-Virginia Woolf, “Reminiscences, Chapter Two”, Moments of Being (Harcourt, Inc., 1985) 44. (via theglasschild)
Sometimes you make an argument that’s so solid and logical that you’re absolutely certain you got your point across, then someone replies to it with something so mindblowingly stupid that you have no idea how they managed to graduate from middle school.
"And to the degree that the individual maintains a show before others that he himself does not believe, he can come to experience a special kind of alienation from self and a special kind of wariness of others."- Erving Goffman, The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (via theglasschild)

Few anon and not asking for progress photos of the healing on this piece in my inbox. So here you all go.
Tbh I think that’s it for it all now :-) its totally white and the scars haven’t changed in a while. So think I’m now fully healed :-) very happy with the result and I will get more work done soon I hope.
If anyone UK based wants work like this done I can’t recommend Iestyn highly enough for doing the work for you.
My favourite thing about Quoth in Discworld is that his name is an Edgar Allen Poe joke.
his name is Quoth. He’s a raven. He’s Quoth the raven.
And he doesn’t say the N-word.
The multiple vertical shafts pictured above are light pillars.
Whereas Sun pillars can be observed on occasion near sunrise and sunset, when sunlight glints off the undersides of ice crystals in cirrus clouds, these pillars have another light source; highway and shopping mall lights. In this case, the artificial lighting is being reflected off diamond dust falling just above the surface.
Diamond dust is ice (ice crystals) that forms when the air is very cold and the lower atmosphere is quite stable. With this type of precipitation, accumulation is negligible since little moisture is squeezed out of the cold, dry atmosphere. The temperature when I took this shot was about - 4 F (- 20 C) Note that a light pillar’s color depends on the color of the artificial lighting.
“If you love me as you say you do,’ she whispered, ‘make it so that I am at peace.”
— Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
