Uploading some parts of my recap (because I couldn’t wait) but the whole thing will be up on Tv.com tomorrow. 


"Drink my soul, as if with a straw
I know it’s bitter, intoxicating taste."

"Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity."
— Edwin Hubbell Chapin

"There’s always a lot of magic, but our way of seeing is very small and we mostly just call it Nature. Why, we are not at all surprised that we can pick an apple in the autumn that was a pink flower in the spring. That’s natural magic and we don’t really notice it."
The Hounds of the Morrigan, by Pat O’Shea 

"Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide."
Donald Winnicott    (via tothenow)

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

To question why we do the things we do and trying to change them for the better is completely different than mindlessly challenging the norm.

"Still, why do I feel so responsible
for the wailing from shattered houses,
for birth defects and unjust wars,
and the soft, unbearable sadness
filtering down from distant stars?"
Margaret Atwood, “Dutiful,” from The Door

"Let go of the idea of what is normal, and go live your life the way you really want it to live."
