The grave of Bettina d’Andrea (1355)

Original Latin text:

sepulcrum domine bitine, filie qdam [quondam] domini iohanis andrea de bononia archidoctoris decretorum [et] uxoris domini iohanis de sancto georgio de bononia doctoris decreto[rum] que obiit anno domini MCCCLV die lune quinto octubris

Which roughly translates into English as:

The grave of Lady Bettina, daughter of master Giovanni d’Andrea from Bologna, great doctor in law, and wife of master Giovanni di San Giorgio from Bologna, doctor in law, who died in 1355, Monday 5th October

Big thanks to for the photos and translation.

dunawhoo said: A boss once told me, "Find your voice." ... What does that even *mean*?

amandapalmer:

it means that everybody is truly uniquely different, when it comes down to it, but we spend our lives trying to sound right and look right; mostly by trying to sound and look like other people and getting lost in the echo and the imitation.

if you’re still enough, there’s a sound and expression that comes out of you that isn’t like anything that’s ever happened before or will ever happen again.

that’s your voice.

it’s who you actually *are*, instead of the person you think everyone is supposed to be seeing…the pretty one, the fat one, the perfect one, the one who’s “good at x”, the dutiful daughter, the long-suffering addict, the one in control, etc. none of those things are you, or your voice. your voice is what’s underneath that.

if that makes sense.

Nude Portraits series by photographer Trevor Christensen

I went to school with Trevor and a lot of my friends know him. I’ve always loved his work, but I love the new level of spunk he’s added to his personal projects.
