I've grown so fond of this new painting by William Matheson. I was initially surprised by the palette but the unexpected camo-like background and that pointy nose/mask have completely won me over. Or was it the boob?!

St Eloy's fall line has arrived and I especially love all the bronze pieces, this little bracelet in particular. Plus it's named after one of the basaltic plains on the Moon, how cool is that?

Akhmatova Poems, Everyman's Library Pocket Poets

He loved three things alone:
White peacocks, evensong,
Old maps of America.

He hated children crying,
And raspberry jam with his tea,
And womanish hysteria.

… And he had married me.

1911
