Life on a stage

"He is in a constant state of stage fright, he says, 
because he never knows what part of his life 
he is going to have to act in next."
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Christmas is time to eat.....artisan biscuits


These are as delicious as they look.  Good quality ingredients, beautifully designed packaging (by design company Irving & co.) and poetry themed! My favourite flavour is The Owl and the Pussycat.  Click here if you're tempted!

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the s
tars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are, You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!' by Edward Lear

Air Bear

Joshua Allen Harris creates inflatable street art.  He positions bin bags on top of subway vents, which inflate into animated sculptures once the air travels upwards.  Search on youtube for more, including a giraffe and an ape..

The sneaky magpie tagged me in her list of 'The 7 Things I Love' here is mine

Sophie Calle Suite Venitienne

‘For months I followed strangers in the street. For the pleasure of following them, not because they particularly interested me. I photographed them without their knowledge, took note of their movements, then finally lost sight of them and forgot them.

At the end of January 1980, on the streets of Paris, I followed a man whom I lost sight of a few minutes later in the crowd. That very evening, by chance, he was introduced to me at an opening. During the course of our conversation, he told me he was planning an imminent trip to Venice.’
