We are the beginning and the end, we can never go backwards, that is why we are prisoners of the present, which is the only thing that exists.

Somos el principio y final, nunca podemos ir hacia atrás, por eso somos presos del presente que es lo único que existe.

It's been 3 months since I last drew my tardigrade mon. Not much changed here as I just redrew this design to fit my new template.
Here's the blurb on tardigrades I used last time.
Tardigrades, also called water bears, are known for being one of the sturdiest animals. When in harsh conditions, they dehydrate themselves and enter a dormant state, waking up when they are safe again. While they are called indestructible, they have an active life span of a few months to about 2 years depending on the species.
Tardinaut (Bug/Water): Although Tardinauts do not naturally live in space, they have been shown to be able to survive such conditions. When things get tough for a Tardinaut, they dry themselves and curl up inside their shell.

 These massive structures were built by the Germans during WW2 and were/are part of many conspiracies theories, aliens, UFOs, secret nazi wonder weapons (wunderwaffe) ...
Edit: This was built during the planing of Operation Barbarossa, when Finland was aligned with Nazi Germany, and the plan was an eventual invasion of Soviet Union.
The secretism associated with the area started when the Soviets took over the site in October 1944. The harbor became a base for the Red Fleet and a base for submarines was built nearby.
The concrete rings are located near the village of Liinakhamari—in the region of Murmansk Oblast, Russia, next to Finland—and were used as fortifications for artillery pieces. Essentialy, they are old concrete bases for rotating artillery pieces.
Tumblr media
Understandably, people without knowledge and a certain knack for idealism would see these rings and their imagination would be stimulated (most often than not, they are actually paid to write silly stories for the masses...)

When you are young, new in all aspects, you think you know how to love, but you don't. We love at that moment with all the forces of our being concentrated in our heart, a heart that beats with restlessness, but in search of a north.

Cuando se es joven, nuevo en todos los aspectos, uno cree saber amar, pero no es así.  Amamos en ese momento con todas las fuerzas de nuestro ser concentradas en nuestro corazón, un corazón que late con inquietud, pero en busca de un norte.

Yaz akşamı serinliğinde nereye olduğu bilinmeyen rotasız yürümelere, en mutsuz anlarda aniden gelen dost sarılmalarına ilkbaharda yağan yağmurlara, aşina şehirlerin en kuytularında kaybolmalara, bir çiçeği narince koklamanın hazzına ve en çok sana, Sadece sana🍀
