Congratulations

All my life I’ve congratulated friends who’ve had babies. And I’ve meant it. But now, a couple of days into having a daughter of our own, I feel it on a whole new level. I now know that all new parents are privileged with the deepest joy imaginable. So, congratulations again – this time with feeling.

Juno

I guess Juno is a relatively unusual name, but we liked it because it is easy to read/pronounce and that it has a whoa meaning as queen of the gods https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juno_(mythology)

I guess most people who have heard of the name will know it from that indie film from 2007 http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0467406/
But I first heard the name from this Throwing Muses song in the 80s http://youtu.be/_YZ-oUTAn3k

Butter

I’m stealing a line from Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. From now on, whenever I get a restaurant bill, I’m going to say, in exasperation, “what – they’re charging for butter now?”

Tintern Abbey

Five years have past; five summers, with the length  
Of five long winters! and again I hear  
These waters, rolling from their mountain-springs  
With a sweet inland murmur.

Saw this dog with its family on the riverbank today. Took some photos and emailed them to his owners.

Dulwich Picture Gallery Grafitti

Around Peckham and Dulwich over the past couple of years, there have been a number of large pieces of street art on the sides of houses and buildings. They looked commissioned rather than done without permission so for a while I thought it was just part of the gentrification of the area.

But then I found out it was cooler and cleverer than that. It seems that the sedate and splendid Dulwich Picture Gallery has been in on it. They invite artists to select a picture from the gallery and then use a detail from it to create an urban piece anew. How great is that?

My favourite is at the end of our road – ROA has taken a detail of a dog defecating in a much more complicated oil painting and done it in his own style.
