On Blexbolex

Saisons, by French illustrator Blexbolex and Albin Michel Jeunesse, is a very beautiful book. Ours was purchased at the Palais De Tokyo on our honeymoon and is now my most prized coffee table book, mostly because of the amazing colour scheme.

On Thanks

For the feedback on I See DC. Glad you like it.
You can post comments on the photos too!

*Not me but this is ridiculously adorable. From A Cup of Jo (I think).

On Song of Late

On Balls and Bases

Part of Jared's bday present involved eating this outrageously unfibrous food. I don't have a baseball team but it looks like I've become a Nats fan (even though they lost miserably to the Mets). But seriously, how fun is going to the baseball?!?

On This Is Not A Poster For Race Unity

These kids grew up together in Israel. We caught up with them last week. From l-r: Youngest, Older, Oldest.

PS she is referring to this phenomenal link that Ghazaleh sent us 2 days ago. 

On Our Cousin Ghazaleh/Melody

As far as i'm concerned, she can have two names - nay, even five - so long as she continues with her way cool "i thought you might like this" emails.

My friend Laily* sent me this article today, which you really should read, called: "Top Ten Reasons You Should Quit Facebook". Point #3 tells you how to delete, not just deactivate, your account. Hooray for that.
*Laily doesn't have a blog, so I can't link to her, but she should get one. To petition for a Laily blog, enquire within.


And now I'm pretty sure my account has been hijacked. Ie see below (wtf?!??!)
Therefore, I deleted it. Win/win situation, really.

(For you, Po:) I love the recycled nature of collage art, and I love Mackenzie's style because words are as beautiful to me as art.

D.C. felt like a dark and damp swamp today. The clouds hovered too closely above our heads.
