09:31 am - Sunday lovelies
I've not disappeared, I'm just busy and tired and hot and sad about the world. But let's do three lovely things on this Sunday --

1) Thanks to an article in today's Observer, I learned about singer-songwriter Benjamine Clementine. Here's a sample of his work -- the piano-driven, raw "Cornerstone".

2) This gorgeous, floral-heavy, contemplative photo on a woman in a field of flowers: an Erik Madigan shot from the September issue of Harpers Bazaar UK.

3) This medieval archway/staircase in Honfleur, which is inspiring some original writing. [waves at stateless82 and mobile_alh]

May your day be filled with lovely things!

[EDITED TO ADD: Twin sisters do an acoustic mashup of Cups and Pompeii's "Bastille". Just wonderful.]

*hugs & cooling breezes* The world is ugly and mean and scary, especially of late. Good thing there's the internet and lovely images to find and share.

You've certainly provided some lovely pictures. I've been to Honfleur but completely missed that gorgeous medieval archway and staircase. Possibly I was too stunned by all the lovely food I'd eaten to notice anything else!

I actually caught my breath the first time I saw that photo.

Hugs and a great day!

hugs, L, and strength for the upcoming days...and tea for the day's woes. The world is scary.

Next break is is mid-October! Which is when the weather will cool off, too. :)

Cheers and a good Tuesday to you.
