Just a few random things that have caught my eye (ear, nose, heart and mind) lately, that I feel like sharing.
: : The photos above are of my lovely little lion, Kobi. Such a sweet and loyal creature, he really doesn't get enough attention on this blog. Perhaps he's as private as I am, he tends to shy away whenever I bring out my camera. I took these photos a while ago, quite proud that I managed to capture one of his favourite pastimes in the garden: eating grass. Does anyone else's cat do this? It's rather cute. The older and bigger he gets, the greener his eyes become. They used to be a shade of amber brown when I first got him as a kitten.
: : Oh Frank, I concur. Never were truer words written about feline friends. I transcribed this poem from this collection, if you're interested in reading it: The Collected Poems of Frank O'Hara, edited by Donald Allen, Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995.
: : I've been eyeing this dress by janeyclothing for quite some time, even though it's been sold. It's so pretty and understated, and there's something subtly luxurious about that shade of green.
: : I found these wonderful words on the "old book smell" via Naomi. I always knew there was a good reason why I love the smell of second-hand bookshops.
: : And I can't stop listening to this song, just like everyone else, it seems. Gotye is coming to Perth, I can't wait to see him live!
What lovely things have you stumbled upon lately?
P.S. I'm taking a small blogging break till next week, Monday. Have a great rest of the week and weekend.
