You were having fun yesterday, weren't you?Hopefully, that weather is heading our way. The Blonde's been a wreck the last couple of days.
Shadow of man in shorts.
Bluebird branching out on unbudded Red Bud.
I was a little worried that our Cornus Kousa didn't make it, but buds budded today.
Would you like to see something I find tremendously funny? It totally kills me. Lepsius completed his doctorate in 1833, led an expedition of Prussian scholars to Egypt and left an inscription on the Great Pyramid at Giza honoring Friedrich Wilhelm IV, Prussian king, patron of the project. The inscription is in hieroglyphics. Quite good ones too. Muy authentico. Except for the ones he made up for Prussia, Rhine etc.Lepsius' graffiti hereI love the whole thing, although a good argument can be made against marring a monumental national treasure. I find the glyphs Lepsius invented to be particularly funny. It's the sort of thing I do myself with my own art, that is sneak in one anachronistic glyph amongst real ones, cell phone, satellite dish, circuit board, and the like, to amuse myself and to see if anyone will notice. Nobody ever does notice, and that makes me a little glum. In case Lepsius' contrived glyphs do not jump out at you and crack you up toohave a look here.
Rhhardin's Shadow Glyph amused.Lepsius's graffiti amazed.Irene's bluebird cheered my heart.
