At Last . . .

Ellen DeGeneres speakingAh, at last some ‘traditional values’ that stand up and speak clearly and aren’t code for ‘shut up and stick your head in the sand’:

“I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you’d want to be treated, and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values. That’s what I stand for. I also believe in dance.” Ellen DeGeneres, quoted on FB.


The Michael Leunig Website

Check out the Michael Leunig website. Australian cartoonist and artist. I’ve always thought of him as the kind of guy it’d be fun to live next door to.

Visions, Illusions

Roaming the web for background on Don Quijote, which I’m reading for the first time, I ran across this portrait in a style completely appropriate for that ‘ingenious’ gentleman of  La Mancha. Take some time; absorb.

And if you care to see more work of this amazing Mexican artist, click on the painting, or try here or here.
