"We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean, because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag." ~ Jeremy Glass, We Can’t Get Lost Anymore
"I will be the artist and you will be my canvas. I will paint the essence of who you are, and by that measure you will become the magic of my art. Your undisputed beauty will become my art, and through my art we shall become one." - Marcus Herron
Galatea was a sea nymph who loved Acis, but was loved by the giant Polyphemus. Polyphemus was jealous of Galatea's love for Acis, so he killed him with a boulder. Distraught, Galatea then turned his blood into the river Acis. The Acis River flowed past Akion (Acium) near Mount Etna in Sicily.
