Made Of Matches


🐶☕️🌹❤️ 𗁱
On the eve of a full Moon
Center yourself in the Common Room
Face your True North
And change your course
With a wish so solemn
Your destiny will blossom
Becoming Lumos Solem.
Gaze upon this Rose in white
Focus with all your might
Tap your heels thrice
Allow your spirit to rise
State your desire, your delight
Guide your mind's eye to the light
Incant: Accio Patronum!
Alohomora, Herbivicus! (7x)
Pull the Rose to your Heart
*Silently say "Fidelius"*
Patronus magic will impart.
➰ 🌹Lorsque vos yeux me parlent c'est mon couer qui vous ecoute. Soundgarden will always be one of my favorite bands. In addition to vastly impacting me with their music and lyrics, they changed the way I approached life, changes that still inform my journey to this very day.
Outside of family members/pets, the death of Chris Cornell affected me deeper than any before. I'm still processing it. I feel so many things. More will be written but for now here are some memories:
Cornell autograph on Ace of Pentacles tarot card, which signifies manifestation of fresh energy, inspiration. It's affixed to a Knights of the Soundtable Christmas card.
Laminated publicity stills from Superunknown.
Promo + Import CDs.
