“Whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others, no place for the poor..." - Evangelii Gaudium

Dior Homme by Kris Van Assche Spring Summer 2008

See - male models can be anorexic too, and these look very sickly.

Fashion isn't real you know - it is just a marketing thing to get the rich and vulnerable to change their clothes every season.

Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible

It is amazing how fat the models look in this video... which tells you how far thin has gone today!

He shall drink from the stream by the wayside,..

And therefore he shall lift up his head. - Psalm 110

The above photo is St. Bernard drinking from the wound in Christ's side, it is painted by Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione. I have searched the web for a larger reproduction and cannot find it. (I had seen one about a year ago.) If anyone has a link to a larger image, would you mind posting it for me? Many thanks.

Poetry Thursday



Did You Ever Know...

It must have been cold there in my shadow,

To never have sunlight on your face.

You were content to let me shine, thats your way.

You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,

While you were the one with all the strain.

A beautiful face without a name for so long.

A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that youre my hero,

And everything I would like to be?

I can fly higher than an eagle,

For you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,

But Ive got it all here in my heart.

I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.

I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that youre my hero?

Youre everything I wish I could be.

I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you youre my hero?

Youre everything, everything I wish I could be.

Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,

For Cathy, you are the wind beneath my wings...

American Idol tryouts...


A study in mental illness.
I watched the tryouts for American Idol Tuesday night - many, many, desperately sick people.

i can't tell you why

it's just a favorite song of mine...

We now know who she was...



Although we don't know what she did...

German academics believe they have found definitive and authoritative documentation proving that the Mona Lisa is actually a portrait of Lisa del Giacondo. The story here.

Well, slap my butt and call me Gladys - I always thought it was Leo in drag - which BTW, was J. Edgar Hoover's excuse for wearing prom dresses at his special candle-light dinners - or so I was told.
