Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.

Greetings from an English 21-year-old (recent) BA Architecture graduate/survivor. Currently looking for work in an architect's practice. I adore The Smiths, tea, classic films, reading, poetry, autumn, wine and Italy. I have too many improbable ambitions.

Long-Lost Color Photos from 1939 Reveal Life in England on the Brink of WWII

After the death of his grandmother in February of this year, Barney Britton found an unexpected treasure while cleaning out her attic: a wooden box filled with dozens of 35mm slides documenting his grandparents’ honeymoon trip in 1939. Although Britton’s mother remembered seeing the photos as a child, they were long presumed to be lost after several decades and multiple house moves. To Britton’s delight, most of the slides were remarkably well-preserved even after nearly 75 years of storage. Many of the photos were shot using Agfacolor film—a novelty at the time—providing a rare and exceptional look at England in color in the month preceding the outbreak of World War II.”

Got this special treat from my friends at Marco’s last night! Now I’m sunbathing like the dried (passito) grapes in this wine! This is some sweet, yummy stuff! Tons of APRICOTS, honeysuckle, brown sugar, golden raisins, and lavender. Very fresh, especially considering the sweetness. Nice balance.

"The geological layers of our lives rest so tightly one on top of the other that we always come up against earlier events in the later ones, not as matter that has been fully formed and pushed aside, but absolutely present and alive."
