iMac – Where would we be without?
Celest church – Charity shop find. I sometimes go there to look for a sign, something striking. Random. It’s the light blue church at the end of the path that does it for me.
The lost painting – A great painting Jay did, but got damaged and lost. Painful to look at.
Made by Michael NYC – Bought this doll from a boyish black gypsy on the street corner of Union Square. Hand made, quirky.
Anker – Sound bar.
Power collar project – A great picture from the collar project I did in an primary school class of 5 year old. This girl rocks.
Becoming Michelle Obama – I am reading the book Becoming Michelle Obama and now suffer from Obama nostalgia.
Correction stuff – Tipp Ex, what would happen without?
Red light – IKEA best seller.
IKEA shelf – Thin metal shelf, a good find, from IKEA
and some books
-> now play the music – top right 🙂
Quincy Jones wrote it – You may know it from the fabulous seventies tv series Sandford & Son, tales of a father and son running a junk yard. A salvage.
The tache de beaute says it all, brilliant.
Found it on Instagram.
A friend sent me this. It’s a picture of me, about 20 years ago. I asked her if she knew the circumstances. She said “You were just tired. You would come over and just crash.”
That’s what friends* are for 🙂
*) Note to self: Not the kind of friend that would draw a moustache on your face when you’re asleep, but she did put Grover** on my stomach, copying my pose.
**) Grover, also known as Super Grover and Grover Monster, is a muppet character on the popular television show Sesame Street. Self-described as lovable, cute and furry, he is a blue monster who rarely uses contractions when he speaks or sings.
Today I was in the car to D. and back, and there was an item about Blue Monday on radio 1.
Blue Monday is a sad day, as you probably know. The annual low for humans.
They had an expert on the phone who told about the likely origin of that expression:
America, the slaves on the plantations sang songs at work, and that was called the blues. For them the color had a link with a funeral ritual in Africa, where the people painted their clothes blue for a funeral. That color was indigo, after the plant that they used for it.
Nhu Xuan Hua is a Parisian photographer based in London. Her work embodies a visual language that is cross-disciplinary in its approach, reflecting her artistic practices that extend beyond photography into mixed-media and sculpture.
Nhu Xuan’s world is always on the edge, it catches the elusive moment when the perception shifts from real to surreal . This interests into arts led her to a signature which goes beyond fashion photography.
