The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real ... for a moment at least ... that long magic moment before we wake.

Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I'd sooner go to middle Earth.

George R.R. Martin

I never used other people's theoretical advice. Tips are smooth and dull. They did not convince me, and I've made all conceivable error combinations. Nevertheless, life is given us to make mistakes. And you can not deny yourself this. Moreover, at first you think that was wrong, but then... Every time I fall in love, I seem reckless to everyone and to myself, but in fact most right, the most important turning points in my life occur in that exact moment. I will always remember that keen sense of happiness, but you know - it can not be repeated.

It was a place that I’ve always wanted to visit. I don’t know how, but for years I’ve read about it in travel guides and then, obviously, Game of Thrones did it’s thing too.

When you play the Game of Thrones you win or you die.

In the lull before each episode during the past 8 years we’ve been speculating on directions the plot might take. There are only a few major players left standing in this most brutal of games. Now we are heading to the very last episode of Game of Thrones. The big final is coming. Who will win the iron stool? What's your bet? There can be only one.

I'm almost convinced it's Bran or Sansa 🤔

Game of Thrones — against the backdrop of the current feminist hysteria — is the most beautiful in its honesty tv show. The true supreme diabolical evil — is always an offended woman. The offended woman is fighting for power and domination in the cruel world of the cisgender men in the simplest and most understandable way: she burns everything alive on her way. The offended woman cuts and maims, hangs, tortures, drowns in acid, shreds infant faces on a grater. The offended woman, no matter how offended she is — was left without a free perfume sampler or the Seven Kingdoms — is the most insidious and merciless creature on the planet. Seeing the consequences of the woman’s offense, the cisgender man cries.

It's good for a person to spend time alone. It gives you an opportunity to discover who you are and to figure out why you are alone. And yes, it takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart. Life's cruelest irony.

The Italian Riviera is some of the most dramatic coastal scenery, with astonishing splashes of colour here and there, and coral reefs, and a 19th-century railway line that cuts through a series of coastal tunnels and the steeply terraced cliffs bisected by a complicated system of fields and gardens that have been hacked, chiselled, shaped and layered over the course of nearly two millennia.

In the life of each of us, there is a place remote and islanded, and given to endless regret or secret happiness; we are each the uncompanioned hermit.
.
Sometimes we all need to be alone. We need to ponder our vital and eternal in seclusion; far away from a thousand outside influences; we need the moonlight in the wilderness, by the seashore, or in the mountains and without companions, without conversation, face to face with ourselves, with only the music of our heart for company; to slip back into solitude to nurture our beautiful inner glow, to find our inner peace, to become complete, to secure immediate ease of mind, to understand 'what it is all about'...
.
For the more we have in ourselves, the less we need from the outside and the less others can be to us. Isn’t it the ideal condition for reflection, even a kind of freedom?

And the danger is that in this move toward new horizons and faraway lands, that you may lose what you have now, and not find anything except loneliness.

I have a question for you today. What do you think of nudity on social media?
.
And which one is your favorite (1-6)?
