I stand alone in a yellow field
While wind pulses against my legs.
It dances across the horizon
Conducting a symphony played
By Nature’s seasoned instrumentals—
As the wind sifts through trees
The world quickly crescendos,
Each leaf a frantic metronome
Growing faster as the wind blows on.
I become a part of the ancient song
As staccato grass brushes against me
And my hands glide with the breeze—
The sun slowly descends, adagio.
My face turns toward its glow;
Lingering rays tickle my skin
And I spread my arms wide,
Closing my eyes to feel the pull
Of daylight’s retreating fermata.
The last shred of orange submerges
Below the curve of the horizon
And the cricket solo begins to chime.

approach an introvert timidly, and shuffle in closer by moving side to side, much like a crab. introverts are disturbed by movement headed directly towards them. talk softly to them, and smile so they feel safe. many introverts are easily spooked and spray ink to try and make a getaway. some experts on the subject of introvert behavior suggest holding out a carrot or small baked good to lure them in.

Tumblr summed up in one gif
“Do not fall in love with people like me
we will take you to
museums and parks
and kiss you in every beautiful
place so that you can
never go back to them
without tasting us
like blood in your mouth”
Look at this Lady :)
We can tell our children that school is important until we’re blue in the face, they’re not stupid. They see the loudest applause is for the kids on the field. They know teachers are paid poorly and don’t drive fancy cars. They know people plan Super Bowl parties but mock the National Spelling Bee. In other words, they see the hypocrisy, and we can’t expect society to correct itself. If we want to have any lasting influence on the way our kids approach education — the way future generations approach education — then we have to grab our pom-poms and paint our faces and celebrate intellectual curiosity with the same vigor we do their athletic achievements. —
