Drifting on the echoes of the hours.

I'm Alexandra. I'm 27, queer, chronically ill, mentally interesting, and I live in the Canadian Prairies.

Here you will find beautiful pictures, beautiful words, surreal humour, adorable animals (especially birds and bats), nature, hippy shit, neat art, queer things, feminist things, Buddhist things, things related to knitting, Greek and Roman Classical stuff, period film/tv appreciation, things that appease my inner goth teenager, and posts on living with chronic illness and mental illness that don't involve the word "spoons". And maybe the occasional Teen Wolf gif set because nobody's perfect.

Le génie du mal [The genius of evil, aka; Lucifer]; Guillaume Geefs 

“The statue was originally a commission for Geefs’ younger brother Joseph, who completed it in 1842 and installed it the following year. It generated controversy at once and was criticized for not representing a Christian ideal. The cathedral administration declared that “this devil is too sublime.” The local press intimated that the work was distracting the “pretty penitent girls” who should have been listening to the sermons.” [x]
