Sky high

I haven't blogged for ages. Lord, I feel like the world has gone in quadrouple time. Zip, zip, zip and then it's gone; another week bites the dust.  So much to contemplate, to daydream over, to adore.  For now though, these McQueen-esque beauties will do. Created by United Nude for Iris van Herpen’s A/W 2010 collection, word is they'll soon be available in limited edition...

[End note:]
What is this life if, full of care
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

[William Henry Davies 1871-1940]
