‘I always keep three books going--a stiff book, a moderately easy book, and a novel, and I always take up the one I feel fit for!’ That is the secret; always have something ‘going’ to grow by. If we mothers were all ‘growing’ there would be less going astray among our boys, less separation in mind from our girls.” Charlotte Mason ~
"The wisest woman I ever knew told me once, when I asked her how, with her weak health and many calls upon her time, she managed to read so much. ‘I always keep three books going--a stiff book, a moderately easy book, and a novel, and I always take up the one I feel fit for!’ That is the secret; always have something ‘going’ to grow by. If we mothers were all ‘growing’ there would be less going astray among our boys, less separation in mind from our girls.” --Charlotte Mason

Zinaida Serebriakova (1884-1967), Kharkiv, Ukraine. Symbolist, Expressionist, Art Deco painter. "At The Dressing Table”. Oil on canvas, 75x65 cm.
SELF PORTRAIT: Zinaida Serebriakova, oils, 1909. Despite being more than a hundred years old, this portrait seems very fresh and contemporary. Change the washbowl in the background to a computer screen and it could be any young woman at her "toilette". What objects can you include in a self portrait that tell the viewer something about you? I chose this because I like the fact that you could see what the person is doing and what she/he may be interested in.

Escribió que estaba "resuelto a atrapar la vida – a preservar la vida en el acto mismo de vivir. deseaba atrapar la esencia, dentro de los límites de una fotografía, de una situación en el proceso mismo de desarrollarse

Annemarie Schwarzenbach by Marianne Breslauer “she had the same effect on me as she had on everybody: this strange mixture of man and woman. to me, she corresponded to my image of the angel gabriel in paradise; an angel, an archangel. not at all like a living being, but like a work of art." - marianne breslauer
