"Be careful only to approach me with love for my daughter.
See, I have been seeding her childhood
with tap root hugs to weed out indifference and apathy.
There will be no daddy issues for your teenaged talons to latch upon. 
My cheeks are attuned to her lips, I will know if they tremble.

I have been teaching her love all of her life,
and all that I ask if that you continue the lesson. 
Love her, befriend her, protect her. Be there when I can’t. 
And when my body gives in to my grave, 
let the grin that eternity carves into my face 
be a reflection of the peace that you love brings to her, 

and we should get along just fine.”

Big ass shoutout to the best dads out there, mine included <3

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

And Tyrion’s just like “Respect.”

If anyone can appreciate the value of a well delivered backhanded compliment, it’s Tyrion.

Where has Leialoha gone?
My companion amid the beautiful flowers

Here am I, “Sweep-all-to-myself”
Your sweetheart in the shadow of fair flowers

Well known is my heart’s turmoil
As love stirs ceaselessly in my heart

How can you escape its influence
After tasting the honey of the white flowered cactus

This is the end of my song
Of my sweetheart among the beautiful flowers

My childhooooddd!!! <3 I miss Wen.

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this."

- Henry David Thoreau (via thatkindofwoman)

Even when stability’s never in your favor
Fly with the turbulence, only last a minute
Land on your dreams, and recognize you live it
Walk through the valley of peace, with bare feet
Run through the flames, that’s more passion for me
I passed testimony just so the world can see
Battle wounds on me, now watch me lick ‘em clean
I know, I know, my pride, my goals, my highs, my lows
I know, I know, it’s mind control
I know I could prosper, no impostor, prosecute my posture
I stand up and I stand by her, what?
