For the week, I leave you with this photo (click to triple enlarge for further contemplation across your screens), since I’m going to be Southwest on a congress and a half and while there will be a lot of clay shards in preparation for my defense (Mission Butterfly Net has been successful thanks to your efforts!), there will most likely be no internet.
For some fun in the meantime, try your hand at Eyesometric’s quiz of the same subject matter (link to her blog in the right-hand column) and enjoy the last entries of the Mahler festival over at Arte Live Web. – Alla prossima!
