Dionysian~Light

Wine, women, and song. Art, beauty, and life. Liberty, ecstasy, and recipes for really tasty drinks. Women may be naked, beauty may be subjective, and ecstasy is not a chemical. Eleleu! Iou! Iou!

Philokalia:: My blog devoted to beauty, mostly that of the Aphrodisian sort (read: beautiful women, naked or otherwise, no direct Dionysian relevance)

JackTHorn's Drifting Life:: My personal blog, just stuff from and about me, stuff I like.

The Threefold Path:: My blog devoted to Hekate Tri Via and all Her other forms, lady of the mysteries.

Saturnian Shadow:: My blog devoted to Kronos / Saturn, as a balancing weight and antidote for the dissipative helium of Dionysos.

Panorama I took for a project I am working on.
I had to share this as it is. My god is this city beautiful.

The consequence of having seen God is madness, not in the sense that one becomes mentally ill, no, but that a kind of madness is set between you and others: people cannot nor will not understand you. Kierkegaard Provocations 388 (via theerrand)

animus-inviolabilis:

Marble relief of Dionysos accompanied by a panther
2nd Century A.D.
Photographed by Roloff Beny
The world man knows, the world in which he has settled himself so securely and smugly—that world is no more. The turbulence which accompanied the arrival of Dionysos has swept it away. Everything has been transformed. But it has not been transformed into a charming fairy story or into an ingenuous child’s paradise. The primeval world has stepped into the foreground, the depths of reality have been opened, the elemental forms of everything that is creative, everything that is destructive, have arisen, bringing with them infinite rapture and infinite terror. The innocent picture of a well-ordered routine world has been shattered by their coming, and they bring with them no illusions or fantasies, but truth.
~Walter F. Otto, “Dionysos: Myth and Cult,” 1933.
