I love this vintage photo of an actress dressed as a nun. I think she's
La Rotero. The background is is a stock photo by Lugobrum on Deviant Art.
This looks such a peaceful place to me....
The historian Thomas Babington Macaulay once remarked on a window at Lincoln Cathedral, which was considered superior to every other window in the building. It is the Rose Window in the south transept, familiarly known as the 'Bishop's Eye'.
What is especially remarkable about it is that it consists of a medley of early stained glass fragments, painstakingly fitted together over 200 years ago by an unknown apprentice, out of the pieces of glass which had been rejected by his Master!
One person's rejects may be often just what another person needs. Great things are so often made of small fragments, fitted together like a giant jigsaw.
So many beautiful creations owe their origins to several sources which merge and knit together to become a part of what the poet John Keats called 'a thing of beauty and a joy forever.'
Keep warm this weekend dear friends...
