The night air was soothing.  The cold was bitter.  Her arms were tired, yet she could not stop.  The momentum of it kept her going, back and forth, back and forth. 

She could see it all in front of her—the cloud and the flashes, the fires and the destruction. It was more real than a dream, yet she found herself completely unable to trust her own senses.  Transfixed on the scene in front of her, the cold air stinging her eyes, she let out a sigh.

The set was rusty, it creaked as she moved.  It was summer, but the night was unforgiving.  Her fingers grasped the cold metal chains, and she could feel them numbing.

The hill was grassy.  As her feet swept under, they sometimes caught the earth, shredding it up.  Some dirt filled her shoes, and as she shook her feet to loose it, her mind was briefly taken away from the situation at hand.  But it was not enough.

Faster and faster she swung, as if the next cycle she would finally be free, but alas, alas, the weight of the Earth struck harder and harder, bringing her down into its grasp only to bring her back up again. 

She could feel the heat from the fires.  It wasn’t like she was used to.  It engrossed her, swallowed her, entranced her.  She swung harder, faster, higher, her head towards the sky.

The night air was soothing.  The cold was bitter.  Her arms were tired, yet she could not stop.  The momentum of it kept her going, back and forth, back and forth.

The Mountain - Louise Glück

ghoset:

leflaneur:

My students look at me expectantly.
I explain to them that the life of art is a life
of endless labor. Their expressions
hardly change; they need to know
a little more about endless labor.
So I tell them the story of Sisyphus,
how he was doomed to push
a rock up a mountain, knowing nothing
would come of this effort
but that he would repeat it
indefinitely. I tell them
there is joy in this, in the artist’s life,
that one eludes
judgment, and as I speak
I am secretly pushing a rock myself,
slyly pushing it up the steep
face of a mountain. Why do I lie
to these children? They aren’t listening,
they aren’t deceived, their fingers
tapping at the wooden desks—
So I retract
the myth; I tell them it occurs
in hell, and that the artist lies
because he is obsessed with attainment,
that he perceives the summit
as that place where he will live forever,
a place about to be
transformed by his burden: with every breath,
I am standing at the top of the mountain.
Both my hands are free. And the rock has added
height to the mountain.

ALRIGHT LISTEN UP KIDS
EVERYBODY PLAY THIS FUCKING GAME RIGHT NOW ITS CALLED POKEMON SAGE AND ITS A FANMADE POKEMON PROJECT ON RPG MAKER
look at that town
its fucking beautiful right
thats where you live bro
what does this game not have
there’s tons of racial diversity and the FIRST NON-WHITE POKEMON PROTAGONISTS LOOK
over 200 totally original pokemon and theyre all beautiful look at this






they also have amazing puns for names such as












and my personal favorites
and some are just plain awesome like















its a fucking dragon viking ship how cool is that
basically there is not a bad pokemon in this gen i dare you to find one
did i mention that your rival IS AN OUTLAW WEARING A COOL ASS PONCHO AND HAT


look at that guy how can you not like him
the music is AMAZING and super catchy
theres a lot of multicultural influences and mishmashing and basically its super awesome
everything is original except basic item sprites
it has the nostalgic feel of the good old pokemon and is made in the style of gen 3 but is so full of originality and surprises that you’ll be constantly amazed with this game
just play it
the demo is out right now and the full game is in progress! come on lets show these guys that what theyre doing is a REALLY GREAT THING and that it NEEDS TO CONTINUE!
ive never even been this excited for a real pokemon game but as soon as i saw this i was blown away
please play this game
please
you will not regret it

…though considering most Pokémon games take place in regions analogous to Japanese regions, argurably the only White protagonists in the game would be those from Unova and Kalos. If we go by the fact the characters can be considered Asian or White, anyways. And then again you can change the skin color on Kalos anyways.
Buuuuuut this sure looks beautiful and the graphics look so lush and I’m sure to play it eventually when I’m not as short on time qwq

hey i helped work on this! please check it out!
