Serenade: Pablo Neruda

Cradled Moon, a celestial fine art photograph by OR Photography

Cradled Moon

With my hand I gather this emptiness,
imponderable night, starry families,
a chorus quieter than silence,
a sound of the moon, some secret, a triangle,
a chalk trapeziod.
It is the oceanic night, the third solitude,
a quivering that opens doors, wings,
the profound population that isn’t here
throbs overflowing the names of the estuary.

Night, name of the sea, fatherland, root, rose!

– Pablo Neruda

All Things Decal

Living in earthquake-prone Northern California poses certain challenges to over-the-bed decor. Anything framed with glass is definitely out. Shelving with books? Totally out. On my quest to transform the vast expanse of naked wall over our bed I’ve become kind of obsessed with the idea of decals. Wall decals, iPhone decals, Macbook decals, I’m tempted to plaster them on everything. There are some really smart and quirky designs out there! I particularly adore this whimsical owl & moon design by Lim Heng Swee for Threadless, reinterpreted by Blik.

This next one by Jean-Sébastien Deheeger completely cracks me up. I could see this in a nursery with a serious sense of humor:

This Etsy store, Home Decal, has some really delicate and lovely designs:

Love this riff on Magritte’s The Son of Man by The Apple Tailor for the MacBook:

Or, how about turning your iPhone into a Polaroid or Leica old-school style camera?? I know this one has been blogged to death but I’m still a devoted fan:

Honestly, I could keep going all night…  😉
