After Martin Luther
1. Children are capable of feeling
both shame and abandonment.
14. My father lives alone. Also,
a hawk killed his dog and you
expect me to believe in mercy.
20. Good things happen to bad people.
47. One day, every person I have ever
loved will die and the only option
you have given me is to just sit by
and watch it happen or hope
I am the first to go.
48. Speaking of love,
86. The list of artists who have
committed suicide only includes
the ones who were well known
enough to be found.
95. As a child, I prayed every night.
It felt important. Mature. Powerful.
I wish someone had told me that
it was me, that I was the powerful one.
Imagine it: fleets of six-year-olds
believing that strongly in themselves.

…is young sam’s birthday. right? everyone is either donning the lilac or waiting for news on his birth at the beginning of night watch, and to everyone except vimes, carcer and lu-tze, vimes and carcer are only gone for a few hours. and then the kid is born! i mean, it’s been awhile since i reread night watch, but young sam’s birthday is the glorious 25th, i’m 99% sure.
so what i want to know is this: how many years of his life does young sam spend believing that his birthday is a special occasion that his dad, some of his dad’s coppers (friends and family, all of them) and even the patrician commemorate by wearing the lilac? he wouldn’t know about the revolution until vimes told him about it — and when would that happen, exactly? what would vimes say, that situation being as complicated as it is for him now, what with how he went back in time to mentor himself and everything? how horrified would vimes be if sam asked about it before vimes got around to bringing it up, “why lilacs, why just some of you,” clearly thinking it was about him? because, i mean, young sam couldn’t not think it was about him. to a child a birthday is a day when everything is about you anyway, and it wouldn’t escape his notice that the lilacs only happen one day a year, especially not when that day was one that was so important to him.
so how old is he? five? eight? ten? does vimes tell him the story as he lived it the first time, or as he lived it the second time? is it even vimes who tells it? i just really want to see that conversation, is all.
6 Color Scheme ToolsCOLORlovers
The biggest resource community for colour palettes as well as patterns. Plus points that they spell “colour” correctly my British way.Kuler
From Adobe it pretty much works the same way as COLORlovers where you also create your own schemes or edit others accordingly.Colorotate
This site is a little more interactive and fun with the 3D elements. In addition there are few fun mixing/blending options.Color Scheme Designer
The Wheel! A great resource for creating schemes as well options for “light-er” or “dark-er” versions.Pictaculous
There are a few picture-to-colours applications but this is my favourite as, in my opinion, its most accurate. In addition to finding you colours from an image you’ve uploaded, it suggests other similar colour schemes from Colourlovers and Kuler. You can also download swatch files which I find useful.Color Palette Generator (DeGraeve.com)
If you’re lazy or don’t have the image on your computer, this site lets you use URL’s instead.
I was aware my new icon was obnoxious but it didn’t really sink in until now
I am also very inspired by menswear of the 20s, 50s, and 60s and I try to incorporate certain elements of those eras into my outfits.
