I was Googling the old Puffin cover for James and the Giant Peach, as you do (I have a Roald Dahl obsession, you might have noticed), and discovered these instead.

So lovely.

Also, have just started The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe. Very Rules of Civility so far…

UHM HOLY SHIT. HOLY SHIT

WELL THAT TOOK ALL OF TWO SECONDS TO REBLOG. HOLY SHIT I CAN’T EVEN. I. CAN. NOT. EVEN.

I would have sex with this music.

So I regularly make the comparison that dubstep sounds like an MRI machine to me.

I think my MRIs would be a lot more pleasant if they sounded like this…

wow omg

BEST THING EVER.

“And Then…” is a collaborative photography project between photographer Jo Metson Scott and artist/set designer Nicola Yeoman. Each photograph depicts an open narrative set in a wooded scene, whether it be a ghostly horse drawn carriage or a downed hot air balloon — the series is ethereal, beautiful and thoughtful.

This is from April, it was my 365 from April 5th. It is me. I wanted to go to bed.
Today, I find, I am the exact opposite: I need to go to bed but I want nothing more than to stay up and write. I thirst for it. I am wholly inspired. I could use this inspiration for anything written but it would be sensible to use it to work on the-Writing-Project-which-is-actually-a-dissertation-but-they-call-it-a-writing-project-(I-think-it-makes-it-less-scary), which I will hence forth call: TWPWIAADBTCIAWP(ITIMILS). If I remember, which I won&#8217;t.
Using this sudden bout of inspiration and drive, which I have been lacking over the last few days even though I was writing the other day, would benefit the BA. But I should sleep. I really should. Really should. And I will. I&#8217;ve probably used up tonight&#8217;s inspiration with this post anyway. Hopefully I will retain some and be able to use it tomorrow. We shall keep our limbs crossed.
For those interested this is how I&#8217;ve been feeling, in my imaginary room where I have a hat stand and an owl that empathises:

What can I say? We all have our off days. I tend to doodle mine a little too much.

The Waters by Brooke Shaden
After spending a lot of today watching Brooke Shaden&#8217;s videos and looking through her images (like the one above, click through to get to her photography on Flickr - it&#8217;s breath-taking), I got what I like to call &#8216;the photographical itch&#8217; - I want to create, I want to bring to life something fantastical, something that sits on the borders between the real and the imagined. I have so many ideas, so many things that I want to do and I think it&#8217;s time to start creating them.
I love images that leave you wondering &#8216;how?&#8217;, I love images that make you ask &#8216;why?&#8217; and that tell a story - even if it&#8217;s an abstract story.
I&#8217;ve been holding off, perhaps out of fear or doubt in my ability - maybe, these things are what I need. It would be wonderful to feel completely confident in myself but maybe I need to create these nervous images and ideas that I&#8217;m not sure about. It may not work but that&#8217;s okay; it&#8217;s experience. Everything is experience. Sometimes it&#8217;s best to just close your eyes and jump.
So that&#8217;s what I&#8217;m going to do. This summer, I&#8217;m setting a challenge for myself. I will create magic or I will try and learn and do better the next time. I&#8217;m hoping for the former.
Thank you, Brooke Shaden - you&#8217;re an inspiration. Let&#8217;s see how this goes, shall we?

I have so many ideas, so many things that I want to do and I think it’s time to start creating them.

I love images that leave you wondering ‘how?’, I love images that make you ask ‘why?’ and that tell a story - even if it’s an abstract story.
