I realized that fully half of the photos in my "inspiration" folder of my new computer are moon-related; the girl cyan help it.

When I was bout 10, I was a moonbeam for Halloween? (Default, constantly repeated costume: witch.)
The title phrase of this post contains another tidbit: it's the first phrase I ever learned in Italian come bambina (as a child).

My favorite Super Mario character, immortalized in crochet! By EnemyAirship on etsy.

I love her space background; it's perfect for the bespectacled mage.

She has lots of other video-game-inspired amigurumi for sale as well!

Have y'all played the new Super Mario for Wii?? I can't waiiiiiiiit.

A queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” - Martha Graham
