lights in the sky

Boy, the Thais sure know how to throw a celebration. This is a really short clip on BBC but I think it is just a beautiful image (I also really love the chubby lady at the beginning holding on to the edge of the balloon--she is *so* excited!). I really love the idea of a group of people creating something beautiful to celebrate a seasonal change. I'm thinking some extravagant celebrations in Prospect Park to mark the next full moon might be fun...

from old books

What a wonderful resource I just stumbled on! I need to share it with all of you...
This website is, and it is just full of free images, in a variety of file sizes. They get really large so that you can actually use them for projects! Liam is the kind man who buys old books, creates high quality scans, and puts them up on the internet for us! While you are on the site you will also see links to other sites that have free art, but most of it seems to be stock image photography. Anyways, you should check it out!
