Tōrō nagashi (灯籠流し Tōrō = lantern / nagashi = cruise, flow) is a Japanese ceremony in which participants float paper lanterns down a river. This is primarily done on the last evening of the Bon Festival, festival based on the belief that this guides the spirits of the departed back to the other world. The white lanterns are for those who have died in the past year. Traditional Japanese beliefs state that humans come from water, so the lanterns represent their bodies returning to water.
remember how this made our hearts flutter?
Every time I think I’m done with the sprouse bros they pull me back in
One is never done with the Sprouse boys
The crown will suit me, as it never suited Robert and would not suit Stannis. I have it in me to be a great king, strong yet generous, clever, just, diligent, loyal to my friends and terrible to my enemies, yet capable of forgiveness, patient.
Ahhh yes Marcus Mumford has such a beautiful face
I mean look at him
He could be a male model
I just got my official back to school budget yesterday. I get it really early cause Im the worst at shopping and it takes me around a month to decide on everything I want. Anyway the budget was way larger than expected. So yesterday I went on the hunt. After like 4 hours I found a total of 5 shirts. That’s it. I hate shopping. There like no options. There’s either a flowy nice looking shirt or a graphic tee which are never the most beautiful to me. People love doing this stuff but I think it’s stressful. I just want to look at the shirt and know it was meant for me.
Oh my god
