This funny twitter battle between staff at the Science and Natural History Museums in London was clever and funny.
On a weekend trip to Natchez, Mississippi, this sign made me feel better about my meal.
And among the beautiful old buildings downtown and the lovely Victorian homes and cottages, the sight of this house... :)
What else raises my spirits?

first Halloween mail
Most of my Halloween Eccentrics are out. Finding a place to put them is the problem. I didn't make any more this year. I'm not sure why because I still love the whimsy of Halloween characters, but my creative energy has been way down this year.
These are some pics from last year.
I've been making some Halloween mail art though, which is fun, and I have a few letters to answer.
I read like some people eat chocolate or potato chips. One book right after another; it is an addiction. September only saw one book that genuinely rose above the pack: Bluebird, Bluebird by Attica Locke. It is not a comfortable book in many ways, but it resonated with me on several levels. I loved the protagonist, recognized the location (generally), was intrigued with the plot, and loved the writing.
