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.

cantata_frank_ohara

: : 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.

green dress

: : 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.

old-book-smell

: : 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.
