Indian Cove


"If you are really a product of a materialistic universe, how is it that you don't feel at home there?" -C.S. Lewis

This quote is just something to think about.

This is what I wore today. I went around town with my brother's fiance and helped her do various wedding-related errands. Their wedding is in exactly 1 week! Now I have to go paint.

The Last Unicorn





Butterfly, butterfly, where shall I hide?” he sang in the fading light. “The sweet and bitter fool will presently appear. Christ, that my love were in my arms, and I in my bed again.” He rested on the unicorn’s horn once more, and she could feel him trembling.

“Please,” she said. “All I want to know is that there are other unicorns somewhere in the world. Butterfly, tell me that there are still others like me, and I will believe you and go home to my forest. I have been away so long, and I said that I would come back soon.”

Over the mountains of the moon,” the butterfly began, “down the Valley of Shadow, ride, boldly ride.” Then he stopped suddenly and said in a strange voice, “No, no, listen, don’t listen to me, listen. You can find your people if you are brave. They passed down all the roads long ago, and the Red Bull ran close behind them and covered their footprints. Let nothing you dismay, but don’t be half-safe.” His wings brushed against the unicorn’s skin.

This is a passage from The Last Unicorn, a book I am reading right now. It's the most beautifully written book.
