First--apologies for the radio silence (blog silence?). It's been a very busy couple of weeks since DC, and my allergies have made life pretty hellish, and miserable. Last Saturday was an unintentional allergy-induced Glee marathon. Hulu even asked me "You've been watching for three hours; take a break?" There I was, lying down on the couch, blearily watching those cheerful kids dance and sing (let's be serious, at my current state, the show used about 98% of available brain function)...and then my computer basically accuses me of being lazy. Just what I needed, a reminder that I wasn't doing anything of real worth or consequence. And yesterday after a morning in the garden, I was completely down for the count and had to take twice as much allergy medication as you're supposed to to get my eyes to stop swelling. Fabulous. But, after a nap and a day's recovery spent indoors, I'm feeling a bit better. Or maybe I'm just getting used to feeling like someone is grinding a potato masher on my face.
The Art of Disney Animation: some beautiful stills and archives of studies done for Disney films; text is in French, but the films are pretty easy to discern...
John Singer Sargent's portrait of Eugenia Errazuriz and Leonardo da Vinci's La spapigliata (portrait of a young girl) --- separated at birth?

Corkboard wall map - genius.
