The cow grazes nicely around a work of art

"The friendly cow all red and white,
I love with all my heart.
She gives me cream with all her might,
To eat with apple tart.

She wanders lowing here and there,
And yet she cannot stray,
All in the pleasant open air,
The pleasant light of day;

And blown by all the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
She walks among the meadow grass
And eats the meadow flowers."

(R.L. Stevenson in The cow)

What are your thoughts?

"I many times thought peace had come,
When peace was far away;
As wrecked men deem they sight the land
At centre of the sea ..."

Who sits on the Red Lotus flower?

“The Goddess of Wealth
…who sits on the Red Lotus flower

offers the fair flow of water,
…affluent shadow,

affluence of paddy harvest,
…name and fame,

huge prosperity,
…lots of wealth and property;

she also always offers longevity
…for those who are not deceptive and trickery!”

The inflatable house


”“What kind of house is this,” he said
“Where I have come to roam?”
“It’s not a house,” said Judas Priest
“It’s not a house . . . it’s a home””
