I want to start a new thread story. Not sure how long it will be and I may use different prompts: #vss365 #vssmagic #vssnature etc etc ... I love reading about legends and folk lore, and in my fantasy writing I often create my own myths. So this will be just a fun exercise...
According to #lore &myths of old,griffins nestled on these cliffs long ago. They swooped down on the unsuspecting;carried them off never to be seen again.
Griffins were not elemental creatures,but air & earth did have dominion over them; their only enemy -fire.

"I helped your troupe avoid #shadow and #gore," said the dark wizard simply, implying that he saved us from the mythical griffins. I gaped at him. "And now for what you promised."

"No," I was careful not to get trapped in words, "I said: after you summon her."

#PreCodeApril Thread.

Feels appropriate to start off with photographer A.L. “Whitey” Schafer’s wonderful Thou Shalt Not image, created in 1941 to satirise the Hays Code restrictions. More background here: ladailymirror.com/2013/11/04/mar… Image
Here’s my @letterboxd list of over 800 #PreCode films (I’m still adding to it). The top 50 are personal favourites / recommendations / Pre-Code must-sees. Also, everything from around 650 onwards is on the Pre-Code Movies YouTube channel. #PreCodeApril letterboxd.com/filmfan1971/li…
A big thank you again to @CookieNScreen and @filmstoriespod for helping me to spread the word about #PreCodeApril with this interview. filmstories.co.uk/news/old-movie…

~thread~
1. St Arnulf (Arnoul, Arnulph, Arnold), having been educated in learning and piety, was called to the court of King Theodebert. Having married a noble lady called Doda, he had by her two sons, Clodulf and Ansegisus. He passed

2. to the court of King Clotaire, and was consecrated bishop of Metz in 614, and his wife Doda took the religious veil at Triers.

St Arnulf always wore a hair shirt under his garments; he sometimes passed three days without eating, and his usual food was only barley and water.
3. His alms to the poor seemed to exceed all bounds.

In 622 Clotaire II. divided his dominions, and making his son Dagobert king of Austrasia, appointed St Arnulf chief counsellor. St Arnulf was anxious to leave the public business.

#JustReopening at #FordhamTheology begins the Q/A session! #Catholic #highered needs to (re)commit to anti-racism. It is part of this challenge, of our contexts, of our history.
Dr. Ward notes that speedy decision-making can silence marginalized voices. Dr. Ford notes that we have a lot of work to do - especially white faculty. Prep for unknown teaching conditions, AND reassess our syllabi-*do* they foster anti-racism?
@cfordjr #JustReopening This will be difficult, but this work must be done. How are your syllabi? Will your teaching turn our institutions away from racism?

#vss365
I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
#vss365
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

#OSHO

Don’t #accumulate anything whatever: #power, #money, #prestige, #virtue, #knowledge, even the so-called #spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate.

It doesn’t mean become a #beggar or #renounce the world. Be in the #world, but don’t be of the world.
If you don’t accumulate you are ready to #die any moment because you have nothing to #lose. The #mediation is living #death.

Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in #spirit. Never #possess anything and then you are ready to #die.
The more you #possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your #purity, if your #spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there #alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever #death knocks on the door it will find you ready.
