People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow.
It’s like a picture of the tide coming in, somewhere in the Elemental Chaos.
Side note: Ebola is spread through direct contact. So it can only be contracted by touching the blood, sweat, or bodily fluids of an infected person. This risk gets even higher if the skin is broken in some way (a cut or dry skin)
THIS TOO GUYS. BE SAFE.
This is sorta manditory to reblog.
If you didn’t cut last night, I’m proud of you.
If you didn’t purge last night, I’m proud of you.
If you ate something last night, I’m proud of you.
If you calmed yourself down during an anxiety attack, I’m proud of you.
If you didn’t let the bullies get to you, I’m proud of you.
If you stayed alive for another night, I’m proud of you.
I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.
Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)
And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.
Oh, and by the way…
Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
