urg. emotionally exhausting week. in serious need of alone time and study time. which could work out nicely, come to think of it . . .

stop, stop! you won already!

the violin wouldn't like being posted, but i would dearly love the shoulder rest. and maybe some sheet music, if i keep playing for a while.

you also have masses of lovely whole sculptures dotting the house and garden, thankyou very much. not to mention scores of birdbaths.

i mean, CONGRATULATIONS! you win! what would you like for your prize? shall i scope out the olympicana?
