Chronicle of a love affair

“Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark…. In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed.” – Germaine Greer

Delightful things, part VI

Deep sea life

Whenever I need to remember that the world is full of wonder, my go-to subject is creatures of the sea, particularly the deep sea. It’s estimated that nearly 80% of all life in the world’s oceans has yet to be studied or even discovered. While we’re off exploring Mars and Pluto, there’s a whole alien world right here on our own planet to be explored.

These stunning photos are by Alexander Semenov, a marine biologist who most recently studied life in the Arctic sea. He will be leading the 3-year Aquatilis Expedition to explore the world’s oceans.


Kelly Puissegur

Obviously I have a thing for the absurd and animal-human hybrids, so naturally I love artist Kelly Puissegur.



Hassan Hajjaj

I first ran across Hassan Hajjaj’s work at Houston’s Fotofest a couple of years ago, and it seems like ever since then I see his work everywhere.  I wanted to go to his riad when I was in Marrakech. I tried. I must have been within feet of it, but I never found it. I was always lost in Marrakech.
