Tiny Fragile Animals


I could not resist these. When I saw the second photograph (& more on Nonesuch via swissmiss), I thought of a line in a Leonard Cohen poem: /because your eyelashes/are the spines of tiny fragile animals.

That's all. But hop over to the link & see the other lashes. Very cool. (Jean Shrimpton by Brian Duffy via We Heart Vintage. More here on a GG post last month)

is having the spine of a tiny animal hanging off the end of an eyelid a good thing? Sounds like what a paleontologist would write.

I wonder if an archelologist would say:/ because your eyelashes/are pyramids in the sands of egypt.

Or an ornathologist:/ because your eyelashes/ are the wings of a stuffed eagle.

Or a Garbologist:/ because your eyelashes/ are the lids of tiny garbage bins....

Or a oncologist:/ Because your eylashes are the corpuscles of...

(geez I think I need to go back to bed!) :o)

Great to hear (GG) that you are currently reading about Oscar. Ellmann's book really is the best I think.

Hi Carina...thanks for the comment. I love Ellmann...he's so great. I can't believe that I've owned it since it was published (in hard back) & haven't read all of it. Dunno how that happened but I am so enjoying it. And I have Stephen Fry as Wilde on DVD now...have seen but am enjoying it again. It's a Wilde Summer here:)
