    The best kind of vortex is a celestial vortex

  2. This is from the 1953 musical Calamity Jane starring Doris Day as Calamity and featuring Allyn Ann McLerie as Katie. I suppose (?) it was intended to be light-hearted and innocent but when you watch it in the context of our times, at Shybi.....well
  3. You're very welcome SioRan. We are really living in a wonderful time where all these beautiful images are available for us to enjoy.

      Once upon a time, I was an antiquarian book dealer... Now most antiquarian book shops in London are also gone... The cost of leases is just too high...

      ...and sometimes there's interesting ephemera trapped between the pages... I have found notes, letters, photographs...and even some unmentionable items inside used and antiquarian books sold in house sales and at auction...

  6. @BenedettaC Thank you and you're most welcome. I loved putting it together and there is more to come!
  7. @ZuZu'sPetals @JadeBleu15 @ChemFemThank you so much for your kind words. I love the process of finding and organizing beautiful art but the best part by far is hearing that people like the results! @JadeBleu15 @ChemFem I love The Sleepers too, and it's influence on the world is quite profound I think. It feels to me like it's the "Mona Lisa" for lesbian and bi-sexual women.

    My first answers was a definitive "umm, a lot?". I stumbled on this website which lists 3 "outrageously useful" books on art instruction, one of which is free on the internet.

      You're welcome! On closer inspection it seems the 3rd book is also free from Project Gutenberg, and the second one is available for free from archive.org

    Yesterday it was sunny with a high of 18 C (which broke a record for the warmest day ever in February). People were wearing shorts.

    Tonight we are having a major snow storm. #CrazyWeather

      Beast from the east in the UK. Very cold snow storms and more to come apparently.

      Are people losing their shit, becoming apparently completely stupid, transport systems grinding to a halt, and health systems issuing patronising advice such as 'to avoid falling over, please walk like a penguin in the snow'? 

      Ah I thought not, that just happens here in the UK!

      Us too. I was getting used to pre-summer loving..

Artistic vision is having the clarity to fall in love with what you see. - Chogyam Trungpa This post represents a travel through time to see a sampling of artistic works whose subject is primarily the connection of women with other women. Along the way we'll see different kinds of relationships and bonds that women have with each other which artists and society in general have decided has value and is worth celebrating. This post will feature paintings and images only to give viewers the chance to feel their own impressions without any extra/spoiling input from me.
