  3. Questions answered: For those of you who asked: the people watching I posted yesterday was in the Education Building at the Minnesota State Fair. I always check the art section representing student work: wood carving, fine arts and crafts. Always a thrill to see the work of earnest and talented work. The audience was watching a game of skill being performed for them.

  6. Very nice comparison with the painting. Your husband is a bit more clean shaven but just as absorbed in his book.

  13. Love your Monday post about books!
    Great photo of your husband absorbed in a book.
    Just amazing the comparison with the painting.

    Did you saw the film "Carrington", a biographical film about the life of the painter Dora Carrington? The screenplay is based on biographies of writer and critic Lytton Strachey. The film, starring Emma Thompson in the title role, focuses on her unusual relationship with the author Lytton Strachey, played by Jonathan Pryce. A beautiful film!
