In traditional regional lore, pixies are generally benign, mischievous, short of stature and attractively childlike. They are fond of dancing or sometimes wrestling through the night.

A GREY PLACE?

This is a grey place,
there's no denying.
Grey slate, grey granite,
grey houses built of both.
And it rains a lot, there's no denying.
Vertical, or horizontal, or swirling rain
falling greyly from heavy misty clouds.
But when caught by a sunbeam
it makes glistening slides
shimmering across the slate
and falls in bright white tails
or snakes like silver
where the mountains leak it.
And spills heavily over rocks,
it's foaming, frothing, yellow ruffed
cascades catching rainbows as they crash
then spitting them back out
in a fine spray of colours.
And now there's no grey
in the dark blue, black sky
filled with gold and silver twinkles.
No grey at all in this place now,
there's no denying.

Took You By Surprise: John and Paul’s Lost Reunion

Today's read.

"Lennon had once tried to distance himself from the mania and adulation that the Beatles inspired, to debunk the myth of the four lads who changed the world. The dream was over, he said. But time continues to prove him wrong."

Five years after the Beatles disbanded, a period fueled by intense acrimony, Lennon and McCartney set aside their differences and got back together one more time. Inside the rollicking atmosphere o…

Coco is the bogeyman equivalent for many Hispanophone and Lusophone countries. From rooftop, it looks over children's misbehavior and it may immediately devour a child, leaving no trace.

Keanu Reeves Is Too Good for This World

If only more of us could learn to adopt Reeves’s attitude in our own lives. It’s okay to take a pause sometimes, to not engage, to let the world separate from you a little bit, he assures us.

Refreshingly inscrutable, Reeves seems like a considerate man who moves through the world mostly alone; he’s aware of his celebrity status but doesn’t take advantage of it, and he’s generous but careful with his presence.

A brief history of religion in art

Jeremiah Dickey describes the evolution of art in the public eye and explains how the modern viewer can see the history of art as an ongoing global conversation.

Before we began putting art into museums, art mostly served as the visual counterpart to religious stories. Are these theological paintings, sculptures, textiles and illuminations from centuries ago still relevant to us?

Oh, Girl!

Migrants, even when they are children, are often demonized in the media, both in Mexico and the U.S. “I honestly expected to find myself working with very bad or aggressive guys. That is the stereotype of Central American migrants,” explained Víctor Tolentino Reyes, 29, an artist from Reynosa who works with children at the Border Youth Care Center on art projects.

Of the migrants he had worked with, he said, “You run into children who are searching for a better future; or you run into children who are on their way to meet their parents for the first time, parents who left them when they were newborns; or boys who are fleeing for their lives and are going through a difficult stage for any human, which is adolescence or puberty.

And here they face all types of situations, because it is complex to face that you are locked up.”

Migrant children, many of whom are unaccompanied minors, are traveling to the U.S. border to escape violence and seek asylum. Is anyone listening to their stories?
