regurgitatedrebellion
"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."- Albert Camus

Here to let my mind slowly bleed out thoughts of passion and ideals,to let creativity and opinions spill out in every color of emotion possible. I'm here to lay my illusions down and play with them a bit; becoming entangled in musical ecstasy. My spirit is just a miscreant vagabond.

Baku
Originally native to China but long naturalised to Japan also the Baku is a tapir like creature. Long believed in folklore to eat nightmares it is unknown what exactly they do eat as they are almost never seen eating. The one time they have been witnessed eating it was when the Baku in questions wix, on holiday in Papua New Guinea, was attacked by a Lethifold. It is believed that at some point Lethifolds may have existed outside of the tropics and that, then, Baku may have eaten them.
Many survivors of traumatic events keep Baku as pets as they are known to have a soothing effect after nightmares, as well inducing feelings of happiness in the everyday. Some wixes have claimed that the presence of a Baku can ward off nightmares entirely though this has yet to be proven. Very quiet and with very soft fur Baku make excellent pets.

Shirasagi-no-mai by ajpscs on Flickr  
The white heron (shirasagi) dancer at Senso-ji temple, Tokyo, Japan
Description for ajpscs:  ”The white heron (shirasagi) dance is one thousand years old. It is a religious rite to drive out the plague and purify the spirits on their passage to the next world. The white faces of the dancers signify innocence, purity and gentleness. People love the beautiful snow-white figure of heron and crane (tsuru) as a symbol of peace. According to religious belief pure white cranes inhabit the Isles of the Bless and their powerful wings are able to convey souls to the Western Paradise.
The Tale
Many old tales tell about white big birds which have been admired in Japan for their noble and graceful appearance. There is an old story about a lonely farmer who saved a crane’s life. The bird turned into a beautiful woman and became his wife. One day she asked the husband to build her a weaving room and promise never to peek inside. The wife wove beautiful thousand-crane patterned fabric from which the farmer could make a lot of money. They had been living happily but due to the wife’s diminishing health the farmer looked into the room and saw a crane weaving cloth by picking up beautiful feathers from her body. After becoming aware that the farmer had discovered her true identity the crane flew to heaven. photojapan.karigrohn.com/shirasagi/shirasagi no mai.htm.”  Image and text:  HERE (via: Annalisa Donà on pinterest   HERE)
