baroque & dichotomy




My favorite art book and highly recommend it.

Larousse Encyclopedia of Renaissance and Baroque Art

amazon.com

This is a big book and beautiful. I've lost count how many I've given as gifts.

No one will regret buying this. -- Josh

Some Southerners say Webster's is a Yankee dictionary and insist we use the Oxford.

Embarrassed to say I don't have an Oxford dictionary.

The main telltale word in writing though is colour and American writers don't use it.

Best -- Josh :)

I'll confess to being horrified by texting shorthand.

Granted I'm old, but still concerned with the trend.

In addition to SI, MPH wrote law papers, while SmoothSail worked as an editor.

Both talents are highly skilled at writing.

Marie didn't share her struggle with ALS with many people and SmoothSail is still with us.

Both these ladies were born with a lot of natural talent. -- Josh
