No single Greek god even approaches Dionysus in the horror of his epithets, which near witness to a savagery that is absolutely without mercy… He is called the “render of men”, “the eater of raw flesh”, “who delights in the sword and bloodshed”. We hear not only of human sacrifice in his cult, but also of the ghastly ritual in which a man is torn to pieces. Where does this put us? Surely there can be no further doubt that this puts us into death’s sphere. The terrors of destruction, which make all if life tremble, belong also, as horrible desire, to the kingdom of Dionysus. The monster whose supernatural duality speaks to us from the mask has one side of his nature turned toward eternal night.

And people wonder why I love Wonder Woman so much.

Bingo.

"I think of every reason there is to live. Mothers, and sisters, and gorillas, and cake. Flying."

GORILLAS AND CAKE. THAT IS WHY WONDER WOMAN IS THE BEST.

THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS 

In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject. 

i love this SO FUCKING MUCH (& deja vu cause this reminds me of my next project I’m gonna work on regarding children’s nightmares)
