Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy.

From The Disparates by Francisco Goya. Dark, haunting etchings depicting the folly of mankind.

What I had been thinking about over the past few years, it ended strangely in an instant... I felt wistful, as though I was saying goodbye to a part of myself that I had stubbornly held on to all this while.

A Mother's Love.

Leonardo's The Virgin of the Rocks.

Toad the Wet Sprocket.

And it won't matter now
Whatever happens to me
Though the air speaks of all we'll never be
It won't trouble me

Terrifying.

Messing up my layout here, but the new season (+ the new doctor!) is fantastic.

In Bed by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

The Floor Scrapers by Gustave Caillebotte.

Broke a large sheet of glass, from one of the picture frames I bought recently to hang my Europe purchases up. My own carelesness, but still the loud crack was rather painful. The two pictures above (both at the Musee d'Orsay in Paris) will be next to each other... The children in bed all restful and the floor scrapers hard at work!

Cartoon: The Virgin and Child with St Anne and St John the Baptist by Leonardo da Vinci.

Surprise! Storm in a Forest by Henri Rousseau.

Am still thinking of places to put these, they're both dramatic in their own ways. I love the gentle, delicate composition of Leonardo's cartoon. And the fiery colour and action in the Henri Rousseau piece.

Journey's Beginning.

Rain. A quiet afternoon. Studying spinal cord syndromes. A warm cup of mocha.

Thinking of Mom. Photographs of her happy face. Using the Olay night cream she bought and didn't finish.

Driving. Watching Dr Who. Drinking copious amounts of barley tea. Sleeping better than usual. Pink lipstick. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Wanting to pass MBBS too...

The Strange Magic of Angkor.


The temples of Angkor were not what I was expecting. Despite being accosted everyday by the blazing heat and humidity of April, there was still this strange, mysterious magic... And the morning light walking through the temples was beautiful. Having three days at the temples let me explore some of the smaller gems as well.

Am all browned. Have to start studying soon/ now. :)

Going to be extra well-equipped+++ against the sunburn. Looking forward to the temples of Angkor!
