ask, speak, whisper your secrets   about me   Hermes   Athena   Persephone   

The whisper on the wind / The breeze's laughter / The heart stumbles and plummets into the ocean / tricks turn me down into the root of the mountain / where rock means erosion at fingers of water / swift feathered feet on the air, laughing, at heart's sublimation...

Paganism, Myth, Archetype, Magic, Objects Esoteric, Art & Illustration, and other plumes of smoke and shadows.

Muse, sing of Hermes, the son of Zeus and Maia, lord of Cyllene and Arcadia rich in flocks, the luck-bringing messenger of the immortals…a son of many shifts, blandly cunning, a robber, a cattle driver, a bringer of dreams, a watcher by night, a thief at the gates, one who was soon to show forth wonderful deeds among the deathless gods. 

I LOVE THE IDEA OF HIM JUST SITTING PERCHED ON TOP OF TALL BUILDINGS LIKE THAT

epistrophia-m:

Adriaen de Vries’ “Mercury and Psyche” (1593) representing genius lifting art (and/or beauty) to immortality. 

One of the most beautiful and personally meaningful sculptures I have ever seen. Long wistful sigh. What I wouldn’t give to have a copy of this sculpture for my desk… for so, so many reasons.

-M.
