RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
Our yellow dwarf star is shining with no clouds to block it out this morning. The evolved theropod dinosaurs that are so pleasantly situated outside my window are singing full force against the tiny molecules of earth's atmosphere that have scattered the light in shorter waves giving way to a beautiful hue of blue.

Damn, it's good to be a gangsta'

I was mesmerized by this in an art book we had when I was a kid. I really wanted that belt around his neck.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

A mega-church pastor has an affair? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!

I think so. .... *Wracking brain* .... There are basically two sets of unicorn tapestries. One is in the Cloisters in NY (the Met's separate Medieval place that Rockefeller bought and gave to them). These are the De Rochfoucuald set found in the 1800's. I think that's where the one you posted is from. I think in the myth these tell, the unicorn is killed (??) There is another set called "The Lady and the Unicorn" (from the Abbey of Cluny ?? in a museum near Paris, ... they used these on the walls of Hogwarts in the movies, they have allegorical depictions of the "senses" ... like taste and smell and touch etc.) ... I may have all this totally mixed up. But the one on my friend's wall is the "Mon Seul Desir" (the last one) from the Lady and the Unicorn" series. I should buy them a book about that set. The style is French "mille fleur" ("a thousand flowers".). There are so many flowers and rabbits and dogs and squirrels and other cool little critters in it, you can look all day and not see them all. Look at the bottom left corner on the fence of this one. There's a tiny dog sitting there. Everything in these has an allegorical meaning. I think I want one. Tongue

Pretty sure that's not a unicorn but rather a one horned goat.

But... What am I looking at here...?

Smile? Hell, I'm fucking giddy! Massive solar storm means we might get the Northern Lights down here in Kansas tonight!

Its kind of a well kept secret that we get them quite a bit here - a lot more frequently than people think. They usually show up a shimmering silver & green ... it is rare to see blue & red unless it's a really big storm blowing through the pole hole. The one today looks to be a whopper! Smile
