Of course, he’s just a bogeyman now, a story to scare children with; Rufus Quinn, “The Mad Doctor of Oxbridge,” locked away deep in a government asylum, or else a part of a prison work party deep in some government chemical mine, a list of black and bloody crimes attached to his name. Perhaps some of those prosecuted crimes might even have occurred. I’m no fool; any doubts I have about the official record shall go with me to the grave, for I value the lives of my wife and children. Guilty or not, though, he was the most brilliant tutor, the most mesmerizing man I have ever met. I will never forget that long winter evening we spent together, smoking pipes and drinking good brandy in his cheerful but cluttered home in Cambridge, surrounded by arcane books, complicated equipment, test tubes and beakers, glowing dials and gauges, bell jars and curiosity cabinets filled with specimens of unearthly beauty; the place a bizarre combination of laboratory, control room, and necromancer’s workshop. The winter of 1983. Outside, the February winds howled at the chimney pot, causing the coals of the fireplace to glow brightly like the lights of some fabled city of the future. Hypnotized by the Dublin cadence of his mellifluous voice,  I watched the shifting light play across his gaunt face as he recited poetry, spoke of childhood adventures, held forth on mythology, astrology, and quantum mechanics, and foretold a wonderful coming world in which all men would be equal, wealthy, and free from economic shackles and the tyranny of minor despots. Had anyone even heard of the Robot Overlord, back then? - - - - - #artmoderne #shortfic #shorthorrorstory #shortfiction #aestheticism #aesthetes #aesthete #romanticism #darkromantic #darkromanticism #darkfantasyart #darkfantasy #darkfairytale #darksteampunk #steampunkhorror #steampunk #steampunkstory #darkfairytale #artnouveau #artdeco #alternatehistory #alternatereality #curiositycabinet #curiosities #nicolatesla #magicreality #magicrealism #esoteric #esotericart #thelema at Paris, France

A Limerick . Minnie: . There was a tall guy named Lennie, Who fell for a girl named Minnie: She was short and too young and small, Almost unrecognizable she was as a whole;. She looked mini mini like a ninny in minis in his mini.😄😜 . . . Well, the HumpDay is already gone but the traditional limerick poem of yesterday was replaced with the haiku. Sorry for that change, but limerick porms of HumpDays will continue again as before on Wednesdays. The limerick poem given above is interesting from the point of its sound repetition [i] signifying smallness and tini mini peculiarities of beings in the conceptual world of sound aestheticism. . . . #sounds #aestheticism #soundaesthetics #aesthetics #phonetics #aestheticsounds #poetry #instagrampoem #instagrampoetry #instagrampoems #poemofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #limerickpoems #limericpoetry #literarylimericks #limericks #hotlimericks #limerickpoem #mylimerick #limerick #limericks #limerickstyle #poemsinlimericks #literary #literarylimericks #literatureinlimerickstyle #poemsinlimerickstyle #mylimerickpoems #alimerickbyme #bymealimerick

"Think of the life you have lived until now as over and, as a dead man, see what's left as a bonus and live it according to Nature.

It was a rainy day, and the windows of the cafe were fogged with steam. The dim forms of shoppers on the street outside slipped by like monochrome fish beneath the surface of a murky pond. She was wearing her red silk kimono. A single diamond, suspended as if by magic in the hollow of her neck, caught the reflected light of  her silver spoon as she stirred another cube of sugar. Could even this tiny flash, this fraction of a second, have been artfully planned? He was losing his sense of reality, the side effect of a powerful drug. He sipped jasmine tea from a rococo china cup, watching her white teeth and crimson lips as she concocted her stories of an alternate world in which all can be forgiven, and there were no victims (“not really!”) and all can be returned to innocence once more. Her Hermes clutch was sitting on the chair beside her, large enough to accommodate some lipstick and...gun? vial? roll of 'go money’? detonator for a dirty bomb? A coiled viper, perhaps, with scales of emeralds and amethysts. Nothing seemed more likely. The future was as vague as the rain-drenched streets beyond; but it was clear enough that, whatever this really was, it would not end well. - - (For those kind souls who take a regular interest in my posts - thank you so much for your patient indulgence while I skived off to work on some other neglected projects. One of those was doing some work on a website I will be launching August 31, 2019, featuring new stories, as well as extended versions of some of my past IG posts. More about that to follow. As always, I so appreciate the precious gift of time from anyone who reads - and hopefully enjoys - my work!!) - - - #shortfic #shortfiction #femmefatale #fearlesswomen #deadlybeautiful #deadlybeauty #aestheticism #aesthetes #darkaesthetic #romanticism #darkromantic #darkromanticism #darkelegance #elegantwomen #opulence #extravagance #elegantbohemian #bohemian #bauhaus #kunst #espionage #wordpornofinstagram #mapplethorpe #wordgasm #wordsmithing #wordporn #wordcraft #wordsmith #darkstory at Little Sister Coffee Maker

. St Silvinus Saint of the Day February 17th . Silvinus jilted his bride the night before the wedding and went off to the Holy Land. On his return he became a ‘regionary’ bishop, which meant he was not attached to any particular place but could move around sharing his weltanschauung. He combined a passionate aestheticism with an equally passionate austerity when it came to his own living standards. He loved brightly lit churches full of sumptuous ornament and gorgeous singing… but he always slept on the bare ground, wore iron chains and ate only wild herbs and fruit. Silvinus was very keen to be martyred or at least live in a desert all on his own. Neither happened unfortunately and he ended his days under the care of the nuns at Auchy-les-Moines. They did sing lovely psalms around his deathbed though. . Here is a picture alleged to be him: @lamplifeboatladder . #February17 #silvinus #weltanschauung #aestheticism #veganism #psalms #auchylesmoines #ambition #ornament #singing @chriskenny.art www.chriskenny.co.uk at Auchy-les-Mines

Image: James L. Seawright, 'Searcher' - - There is a sailor traversing uncharted waters, guided by her astrolabe and her poetry. Her arms are tattooed with mysterious symbols; she is searching for the rarest of treasures. While she travels, the great souls of ghost-light and ancient ice perform their eternal dance in the skies above her, while the leviathans sing in the trenches. She builds her fragile caravel as she sails it, with boards shaped from the driftwood of dreams. She is pulled towards a magnetic coastline; her sails fill like silken lungs with sighs and scented trade winds. Her body is the wild-hearted mariner, restlessly travelling across wine dark seas, and her soul is the lighthouse beam, always guiding her home. - - - - - #fable #fabulousart #fabulist #fabulista #magicreality #magicrealism #magicalrealism #fairytale #darkfairytale #darkfairytales #fantasyart #fantasystory #dreamlike #dreamart #folkart #folkartist #surrealpoetry #surreal #surrealism #surrealimages #surrealart #aestheticism #aesthetes #romanticism #rococo #artmoderne #artmodern #poetrygasm #poetryporn #wordgasm at Whitney Museum of American Art

"𝓹𝓲𝓼𝓬𝓮𝓼" Pisces is a group of assassins that was chosen by the government. They're a group of Jewish people. Both males and females, Asenath is one of the first member. The group was created around 1937. Because they work for the government, they were responsible for 146 assasinations till this day. The group's outfit was design to match "heroes" as so if they're seen, citizens will think they're in a costume party. Every "Pisces" has 2 blades, representing the two fishes, the symbol of the Pisces constellation . . . . This was requested by @auliabsc ^ ^ . . . . . .

🔥🔥Acabo de subir un nuevo vídeo pequeños, el link está en mi perfil, ayúdenme a compartirlo y a comentar y dar likes, es super importante su apoyo...🔥🔥🔥🔥 . . . . . . . ¿Quien tratas de ser?¿ Eres tu realmente cuando haces lo que haces? ¿O más bien estas tratando de ser otra persona? No quiero parecer arrogante al respecto, pero insisto diariamente en que a pesar que nuestra construcción de lo que somos nunca es absolutamente única, es decir, siempre tomamos de los demás ideas para generar lo que somos, debemos sentirlo de verdad... Ser nosotros mismos está bien y es lo más saludable, fluir con la marea de alguien más solo deja falta de aliento y falta de carácter... Amor, aun cuando todo lo que haces es evaluado constantemente por terceros que deberían valerte gorro siempre ¿Como hacen ustedes para tratar con los prejuicios? . . . Esta foto es de mi video inspirado en Billie Eilish y la tomó mi amado @cesniet . #billieeilish #billieeilishoutfit #billieeilishedits #comfyoutfit #pinkhair #peachhair #tumblrgirl #altoutfit #altgirl #alternativebeauty #alternativemakeup at Bogota D.C
