Things that make you go 'hmm'…
Books, books and more books
This paper reminds me of the wood block print by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai – ‘The Great Wave’ which I have always liked. The artist lived from 1760-1849 but this iconic image of Mount Fuji, framed by the wave is so contemporary. Read more about the artist and his work here.
My back is slowly improving. No tennis this morning though which was disappointing but I knew it would be too painful. Instead, I am continuing the process of sorting out my work room. It is full of books and I have decided to be absolutely ruthless (how can I be ‘ruth-less’ if I don’t know what ‘ruth’ is?) and get rid of many of the books on my shelves. It’s ridiculous to keep them all, fondly imagining I will read them again, so I am going to have a big clear out and free up some space. To give you an idea of the scale of the task here are some photographs – and these are just some of the books I have….
As a diversion, to put off beginning this mammoth task (procrastination again anyone?) I have made a new page to contain the awards I have received from all you lovely blogging folk. This is largely due to the King of Blog Awards, Colin over at Life who passed on an AVALANCHE of awards he had received, all at once and Kylee at Bijoux and Banter, who sent a lovely one on the same day. I decided that there were so many, they deserved their own page :-)
To end, and to add further delay to the delay, I just received this and thought it was funny enough to pass on to you. I’m not making any comment other than to say ‘If the cap fits……’, you know who you are :-)
Man flu indeed.
