“Give me Pablo Neruda, picnic beneath a full moon & iridescent stars, black olives, cherries, dark things, canoe on a river…that’s romance.”

‘A hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today there are as few as 3,200.’

Burnished Tigers © First Night DesignBurnished Tigers © First Night Design

Over wide streams and mountains great we went,
And, save when Bacchus kept his ivy tent,
Onward the tiger and the leopard pants,
With Asian elephants:
Onward these myriads–with song and dance,
With zebras striped, and sleek Arabians’ prance,
Web-footed alligators, crocodiles,
Bearing upon their scaly backs, in files,
Plump infant laughers mimicking the coil
Of seamen, and stout galley-rowers’ toil:
With toying oars and silken sails they glide,
Nor care for wind and tide.
John Keats — Song of the Indian Maid from Endymion

Quite a number of our friends are pregnant. Our next-door neighbour is also due to give birth at the end of the month so I am surrounded by expectant talk. A little synchronicity has been at play and I’ve just sold a print of this charming photograph of proud parents.

In this instance, the parents are actors — or should I say were, since both are long since dead. Seymour Hicks (1871-1949) and Ellaline Terriss (1871-1971) gaze fondly at their daughter, Betty, who was born in 1904.

Take care and keep laughing!
