Creation stories are always fun to read.
And, oh yes, the "apology" clip. I've seen that several times. The "Real World" groups are just so weird...I wonder how their parents feel about their shenanegans.
That's right - I said shenanegans.
LOL! It's a great word. :)
The only realworld people I can remember is that I liked Elka, and hated Puck.
Yah, that is in no way shape or form an apology. He ends up calling the girl more names than he probably did when he yelled at her the first time and then says that he's waiting for her apology. Asshat.
That my favorite apology ever. From now on, whenever I have to say I'm sorry I'm going to incorporate the word slut somehow.
Adored the story! It's so beautiful.
And all those silly scientists with their Big Bang theory! :P This my theory. Hugging. And separation. That's life.
My favourite bit is actually the whole thing itself, but this excerpt was particularly beautiful:
Now he doesn't cry so much. But you can still see his tears every morning -- they are the dewrops on the grass. And the mists that rise from the ground are Papa's sighs.
Thank you! ♥
You're welcome. :) I thought it was a really beautiful story, and had to share.
ROFL. It looks like he made her cry even harder with that apology.
I'm quite fond of the name Tane. I wonder if it's in the baby names book...
LOL! The apology made me giggle lots.
And it is a cool name. How would you pronounce it? Rhyme it with Cane?
Hahaha, what a wonderful apology.
woh! a beautiful legend))
the funniest thing is that The Greatest Of Moms is Papa)) I like that))
current music: skyclad - halo of flies
the other beautiful thing is that water on earth is tears of the sky god about the light +)
I love it. I think it's beautiful. :)
Just... beautiful. Poetic.
And so many modern "pious" Christians like to think that their myths are the only beautiful, poetic and meaningful ones... or that all other world myths are silly or ungodly.
Just like that asshole's apology.
And you know what? Next time I have to apologize when I don't think I should have to, THAT is how Im going to apologize.
I agree. Completely beautiful.
And please do. That apology rocks my world. ;)
i worked with a maori girl in Brisbane named Rangi, she never told me what it meant but i never asked her either, thanks.
You're welcome. That's awesome. :)
Whenever I think of Maori, I think of the book Once Were Warriors
(It's also a movie!) that I had to read in college. It took me about three reads to actually like that book, but I still got an Incomplete in that class. Anyways, I love hearing those creation myths from different cultures. Super interesting, indeed!
Ooh, never heard of it! I'll check it out! Thank you! :)
You know, there are some people in the world who cannot bring themselves to apologize, wether conciously or subconsciously. They just...can't do it, or they choose not to.
I don't understand people who see it as some kind of weakness.
I don't know.. I think it's very important to be able to be held accountable for ones actions, and an apology is one way to do it.
Oh that's a beautiful creation story. I hadn't heard that one.
Hope you and your little guy are having a great weekend.
I love passing on a laugh to you.
Do you like Ursula Vernon? I adore her...she's so funny... and there is a NSFW meme that she's done. I don't think she's ever done one that I know of? I'm not usually one for this sort of thing, but with her - well, don't be drinking when you read it, or you'll be cleaning off your monitor!http://ursulav.livejournal.com/716718.html
LOL! That Meme rocked! I love her answers. Thanks for linking me!! =)
I'm glad you liked the creation story. It's one of my favorites that I've found so far. :)
And we're doing good. How 'bout you? *hugs*
that is so beautiful. for my senior thesis, i'm writing poetry about different religious myths, and this is definitely going to be one of them.
That's wonderful!! Will you post it once you've written it? I would love to read it. :)
