Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" 1665) - "Certainly the way Vermeer captured subtle changes of light and focus seems to anticipate photography: some features appear in focus, while others seem out of focus, and objects are depicted with a foreshortening that resembles that seen in photographs -- this is perhaps one reason why he appeals to us today."

Painting by Carel Fabritius THE GOLDFINCH I didn't think I liked this book at first but it's the type of story that stays with you, that you think about long after you've finished it and it haunts you until you come to realize what an amazing story it really is. It revolves around this stolen painting. Poor little bird. Tethered to its perch.
the goldfinch the basis of the story by donna tartt (which, I'll confess, I gave up after 100 pages). This is the painting by Carel Fabritius in 1654. Oil on panel. 13.25x9 inches. A student of Vermeer.
Carel Fabritius-1622-1654 The Goldfinch 1654. One of my favourite paintings - it is at the centre of the new Donna Tartt book - The Goldfinch.

A TRIP THAT DOESN’T END

I already told you Cameron had a bunch of hallucinations and this is how I picture his brain when he doesn't take his medication. I picture him being in a psychedelic state of mind all the time, although I'm sure it isn't nothing like that.

The New Yorker - The Trip Treatment : Research into psychedelics, shut down for decades, is now yielding exciting results
Psychedelic lore is littered with cautionary tales. Should reports of hallucinogen persisting perception disorder count among them?
Early one night in the fall of 1987, a college freshman ate half of a microdot of lysergic acid diethylamide on his way to a party. He was young, but more than a little familiar with mind-altering chemicals: LSD, mescaline, psilocybin, and other, less common psychedelics. This trip, by comparison, turned out to be only a “mild experience.” The tingling euphoria, splendid visuals, and sudden bursts of insight mostly wore off by the time he retired to his dorm. But the following morning, some effe

15 emotions (includes interesting conflicting compound emotions identified by Martinez et all in PNAS journal)
Happily disgusted? Until recently, scientists had only identified six basic human emotions: happy, sad, fearful, angry, surprised and disgusted. In a new study published this week in the journal PNAS, Martinez and his colleagues have identified 15 additional "compound emotions."
Happily disgusted? 15 new emotions ID'd --- "In a new study published this week in the journal PNAS, Martinez and his colleagues have identified 15 additional "compound emotions." These are expressed by combining the basic emotions, much like using the primary colors blue and red to create purple."
Scientists at Ohio State University have introduced 15 new emotions to the human emotional range. So now we can all be "happily disgusted" if we want to be.

A Moving, Modern Memorial for Hurricane Sandy Victims

This mirror by NYC designer Joe Doucet is a tribute to Hurricane Sandy victims and gives the impression of being half underwater.
Designer mirror pays tribute to Hurricane Sandy victims. Seriously cool, inspiring and moving design!
New York designer Joe Doucet created this mirror that makes the viewed look as if they're immersed in water as a tribute to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Fathom Mirror by Joe Doucet "This mirror that makes the viewed look as if they're immersed in water was designed as a tribute to victims of Hurricane Sandy."
When Hurricane Sandy unleashed its wrath on the Eastern Seaboard last October, designer Joe Doucet’s lower Manhattan studio and apartment were left relatively unscathed. “Apart from being without power for a week or so, we really were very fortunate,” he says.
Fathom Mirror by Joe Doucet : New York designer Joe Doucet created this mirror that makes the viewer look as if they're immersed in water as a tribute to victims of Hurricane Sandy. The blue lower half of the circular mirror refracts the light slightly compared to the total reflection of the top, so a small portion of the visage appears in both. The effect is similar to looking through a glass tank that's half-full of water.

Ana Montes - "By day, she was a buttoned-down GS-14 in a Defense Intelligence Agency cubicle. By night, she was on the clock for Fidel Castro." Busted within days of 9/11, her story barely made a blip on the media radar.
From "Ana Montes did much harm spying for Cuba. Chances are, you haven't heard of her." on The Washington Post
Ana Montes, Defense Department wunderkind, did much damage spying for Cuba. Locked up in the Lizzie Borden ward in Texas, she has a few more years left of her sentence for espionage.
