Eclectic Storm

Over the years I have worked on historical costumes, taught jewellery making and dabbled in many artistic hobbies. In trying to find the ultimate creative activity I have come to the conclusion that there isn't one. So I am happy to be eclectically inspired to create at random.

Biologists would have you call this thing an Armadillo-Girdled Lizard, Cordylus cataphractus, but I won’t be fooled. This is clearly a baby dragon. They also have this adorable habit of biting their own tails for no discernible reason. Which is adorable until you remember what the ouroboros is, and inevitably conclude that these things are also dark magic.

Magical dragons. It all makes sense.

OM! WOW. Source for myths and legends.Or there are dragons and we’ve been lied to.

Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.

I’d watch this movie.

How is this not a movie?
