Gleanings

Traveling in the wilds of the internet (or rather, from the comfort of my feeds), I return with a satchel stuffed with things to share.

St. Sibyls Sermon in Roman Ruins with the Statue of Apollo, by Panini Giovanni
Three guesses why I like this painting.

Merfolk Village, by Virginia Lee
Three more guesses why I like this one.

Tower of Babel, by Pieter Brueghel the Elder
And this one.

Answers: Roman architecture. Underwater architecture. Architecture!

Have a lovely video found on the blog Hecate Demeter:

Life of flowers from VOROBYOFF PRODUCTION on Vimeo.

A post from Monika Viktoria's blog brings out the desire to hibernate, or settle in for the start of winter.

Tips for photographing your home (I've been interested in matters of decorating the past few weeks, don't mind me).

Andrea Eames shares a quote on why writing is like weather, with a well-suited image.

How is Steve Jobs like Johannes Gutenberg? In the beginning of a new speech, an impassioned and eloquent defense of books, Jane Yolen explains why.

Terri Windling on creative burnout (I already shared this, but it's too good not to share again). A later post in the series extensively quoted a beautiful article on Rites of Passage.

And finally:




Book recommendations, book reviews, quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists


Have a good weekend, everyone.
