The Cabaret

Of life, love and curiosity. Haunted manors, forests and ruins. Alchemy of mind and spirit. Water, the beauty of nature and interesting, calm places. Death, old books and watches. And some desserts and fashion too.

…for beauty is nothing
but the onset of terror we’re still just able to bear,
and we admire it because it calmly disdains
to destroy us. Every angel is terrifying.

—Rainer Maria Rilke, from The Duino Elegies (via violentwavesofemotion)

Wiki: “The Radiolaria are protozoa of (diameter 0.1–0.2 mm) that produce intricate mineral skeletons, typically with a central capsule dividing the cell into the inner and outer portions of endoplasm and ectoplasm.”
