I wish the world was less negative and more fucking encouraging.  Yes bad things DO happen, people make the wrong decisions & choices, and sometimes things aren’t they way we would like them to be.  We have a chance to make up for those terrible, terrible things but we can’t do that as a negative, angry mob….we can only make the world a better place by coming together in a positive force of unity, accepting the bad and moving past it with true goodness without angry overreaction or dissent.

ANEMOI
[noun]
Greek wind gods who were each ascribed a cardinal direction from which their respective winds came and were each associated with various seasons and weather conditions. They were sometimes represented as gusts of wind, at other times were personified as winged men, and at still other times were depicted as horses kept in the stables of the storm god Aeolus, who provided Odysseus with the Anemoi in the Odyssey.
Of the four chief Anemoi, Boreas was the north wind and bringer of cold winter air, Notus was the south wind and bringer of the storms of late summer and autumn, and Zephyrus was the west wind and bringer of light spring and early summer breezes; Eurus, the east wind, was not associated with any of the three Greek seasons, and is the only one of these four Anemoi not mentioned in Hesiod’s Theogony or in the Orphic Hymns.
Etymology: from Ancient Greek Ἄνεμοι, “Winds”.
[Evelyn De Morgan - Boreas & Orietyia]

laughter; I feel that it is something that can make even the most uptight-strungout person feel better.

Five-year-old Miles Scott, from Sikiyou County, near Oregon, has assumed the persona of ‘Batkid’, donning a mini cape in his crusade to rid the city of its fiercest foes, the Penguin and the Riddler.

Thousands of volunteers signed up to help cheer along the boy, who is in remission after a four-year battle with leukemia, as he enjoys his dream day granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

When the charity, which grants wishes for ill children, asked Miles to name his dream, his answer was simply: ‘I want to be Batkid!’ (X)
