I intended to do another iconage post, about the one which is a crop from Mihaly Munkacsy's 1895 painting of Parc Monceau, but while digging up a bit more information about the painter, I got hung up. That's what usually happens when I visit art web sites. I came across a link to Euroweb, which has more than 11,000 images of European art from the middle ages through the 18th century, and includes a nice section on Gothic architecture. Mmmm, gargoyles! Anyway, after squandering so much time there, I have none left in which to write a decent entry. Curse you, western civilization and your endless distractions! Once again, I must envy those with high speed Internet connections. If I had one, I could waste so much more time so much more effectively! Maybe I'll get around to the iconage post tomorrow. In the meantime, I will use that icon itself for this post, as a tantalizing foretaste. Of course, my post with the full version of my dragon icon is still there. (I've got to use up more of that PictureTrail bandwidth I'm paying for!)
I hear by the sound of crows that it is time for sleep. Yesterday morning I was kept awake by the itching of my first mosquito bite of the season, which was right on the side of my neck. I'm putting repellent on myself today.
