10:03 am - links on this Sunday
Before I start painting (as in, my kitchen ceiling) or writing, a quick wave and a few links for this Sunday:

*from The Guardian, this gorgeously written, quiet story about a chip shop in Wigan. (The title of the series in which the report appears is "Nighthawks at the takeaway", and the accompanying photo does evoke that famous Edward Hopper painting.)

*Cool interview with Dame Harriet Walter and her husband Guy Paul in advance of their appearing together in a new play. (Warning, for those phobic about snakes, like me: photograph with a boa constrictor.)

*[EDITED TO ADD: Mark Gatiss writes about his train-trip through Japan last summer. Beautiful, evocative, and enticing.]

*Whilst clicking around on Pinterest, I came across a pin of the 'interior clouds', part of a series of art photographs by Atelier: Berndhaut Smilde. This blog post on Automatism talks about them. For your dreaming purposes today. :)

Cheers to all, and dreams and visions to nourish you!

Glad to be of service. I can't stand coming across images/videos of snakes without warning! [shudder]

I loved the article about the chip shop. So many words I didn't quite understand.

I think a lot about painting my apartment, but the thought of having to do the ceiling first stops me in my tracks.

Isn't that article lovely? I just liked the immediacy and quiet of it. And yes, a few different words. :)

I am actively bad at painting ceilings. We persevere.

Hugs hugs!

The interior clouds are rather disquieting.

Best wishes on successful completion of the painting!

The chip shop article made me realize I've still never had proper fish and chips.

and, I want to go to Japan.

Re Japan: I've never really wanted to go, but Gatiss' article has made me think seriously about it!

Cheers and a good Monday, T. And fish and chips sometime. :)
