Summer, Benton Shrine, Shiba by Kawase Hasui


  1. Doesn't that give you pause and provide just the loveliest sensation of calm and tranquility? Impossible to look at something like that and not feel more at peace. :)

  2. Benton or Benten is actually a goddess in Shinto lore. Here's her description. It's obvious as to why you would resonate with this image, considering Benton/Benten is it not?

    Benton/Benzaiten (弁才天 or 弁財天)

    Also known as Benten, she is the goddess of everything that flows: words (and knowledge, by extension), speech, eloquence, and music. Said to be the third daughter of the dragon-king of Munetsuchi, over the course of years she has gone from being a protective deity of Japan to one who bestows good fortune upon the state and its people.Derived from the equivalent goddess in Hinduism Goddess Saraswati.

  3. f*ck you very much!



    see, you degenerates have last names like first names...

    how about I believe in WHATEVER I want - even in the FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER! - and
    you have nothing to say!

    let me show you the end results of this particular *ONE-DIMENSIONAL SCIENTIFIC MODE*
    of thinking that is called *CRITICAL THINKING*, which is completely divorced from
    any human objectives...

    this style has been perfected by dawkins, pz, randi and the other *NEW ATHEISTS*
    THE BOOBQUAKE - 911!
    hey, atheists don't even BELIEVE IN BOOBIES!!!
    they thought BOOBIES had no effect... WRONG!

    see, I just want to make it clear to the rest of you:
    jen is unable to see that there is a CONFLICT BETWEEN EROS & SCIENCE....

    see how we take a term and convert it into its AUTHENTIC POLITICAL DIMENSION - THAT
    OF LIBERATION - not just merely harmless expression...

    Visit for the BOOBQUAKE:

  4. Why, DM dear, I had NO idea that Kawase Hasui was also on your bad list. I mean a simple Japanese print? Who knew?

    I do hope you enjoyed the post devoted to you below. Heartfelt, really.

    Hugs and atheist good wishes to you! I'm just hoping that the quantum field brings you mental healthcare.
