Huginn & Muninn (Old Norse for “Thought” and “Memory”) EDIT: Design by Christine Foltzer, available at her shop on Etsy.com (search Huginn and Muninn)

Scholars have linked Odin’s relation to the ravens Huginn and Muninn to shamanic trance-state practice. Odin sends his mind on a journey through the symbolic birds. There is a stanza in the Norse Prose Edda book Grímnismál where Odin worries about the return of Huginn and Muninn.  This is consistent with the danger that the shaman faces on the trance-state journey; will his mind return to the physical reality after the journey of flight?

Until seeing this, I admit I had never before heard of erasure poetry: removing words from existing text in order to create new phrases and remarks, which are then framed as poems.
The king is naked and mad,the queen wagers the whole worldon heaven—a strange country.I hide in a wagonwith one horse.
Writer Dave Bonta created the amusing poem above by excising segments of The Diary of Samuel Pepys; a project which then inspired another lovely, colorful work by Welsh artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins.
To build this spontaneous piece, Hicks-Jenkins—in true erasure-poet style—repurposed collage elements from his previous animation & illustration work for The Soldier’s Tale.

Max Schreck relaxing between takes & creeping everyone out on the set of Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror 

During the filming of Nosferatu, Schreck reportedly stayed in character at all times, even when the cameras weren’t rolling, and the cast and crew never saw him out of full makeup and costume. While this immersive approach to acting is commonplace now, it was unusual back then and his appearance & behavior led to wild rumors that Schreck actually was a vampire. If this photo is indicative of Schreck’s demeanor around the set of Nosferatu, the crew’s wariness was entirely understandable.

Cat’s Fable (by xxfromneptune)

"I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves."

Hermann Hesse, excerpt from Demian
