Getty Publications just launched its virtual library where readers can freely browse and download over 250 art books from the publisher's backlist catalogue - from J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Institute, Getty Research Institute.  What a treat, or rather, it's a feast.

Maybe somebody will identify these common mushrooms and tell me if they are edible? Hopefully...

So Long. Farewell. Au Wiedersehen. Adieu, Adieu, Adieu.
#rememberingleedaniels

There's a sad sound that's clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say, "Cuckoo" (Cuckoo, cuckoo)
Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you
So long, farewell, au Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu

So long, farewell, au revoir, au wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
"Yes? No."
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, goodbye
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I

So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye

I just posted this photo here and G+ over-manipulated and ruined the bokeh. So I decided to delete it. You will have to go here to view it:

Bond, James Bond is the name of this 11 year old llama. He received his poodle cut last week - to help him tolerate the unbearably hot summer this year. He was a sheep guard until his herd was sold. Now he looks forward to the arrival of a new companion named Dalai Llama (no, I did not  name either of them).

The Beautiful and Damned

Magnolia,
Innocent white, intense incarnadine,
Precious without question.
Ensured to wilt.
Ensured to fall.
Ensured to die.

From a flower on high,
A petal falls while
Hope holds
In an awkward dance
Of new beauty
Incapable of analyses but
Stemming seemingly from
The petal being held afloat
Only by a thin thread of air
Lachesis measured short.

Time forever passing,
Tears forever multiplying,
Petal descending still.

All nature fleeting,
Thread snaps;
Petal plummets.

Another,
Then another,
And yet another
Following.

Each end
More tragic
Than the last
Until
The flower is left
Without petals,
An ugly shell
Of its former glory.

The more the beautiful,
The more the damned.
~Anthony S.~

Happy Birthday, Bill. You didn't make it.
